White Paper:

The Evolution of Chassis Pool Models


TRAC Intermodal
The White Paper from TRAC Intermodal explores the evolution of chassis pool models in the context of global supply chains. Chassis are critical to the movement of shipping containers from a port to an inland destination, and Intermodal Equipment Providers (IEPs) play a crucial role in owning, investing in, and leasing chassis to various stakeholders. The rise of chassis provisioning companies, including TRAC Intermodal, has paved the way for different pool models by which customers can obtain chassis.

Despite the challenges, multiple chassis provisioning models ensure competition across markets, giving customers the power of choice. This competition has allowed the industry to weather pandemic-related challenges and changing cargo patterns. IEPs are offering a wider range of tailored provisioning methods, including leases of different durations and daily rentals, to respond to particular customer needs. The study concludes that the fundamental benefit for customers with chassis pools remains the same: how to access the safest, best available equipment to meet their business needs at the most reasonable cost.
