ABOUT THE CASE STUDY

Despite an 11.3% increase in cargo volume between 2017 and 2019, compounded by spikes in demand, the Port of NY/NJ has been able to maintain fluidity across its system.

The Port of NY/NJ has undergone extensive upgrades and investments in the past few years that have resulted in an 11.3% increase in container cargo volume between 2017 and 2019. Despite this volume increase, compounded by sudden spikes in demand during the 2019 US-China trade war and a record container volume rebound in the summer and fall of 2020, the chassis system was able to maintain smooth cargo flow.

This success can be attributed to the Port’s chassis provisioning model as well as TRAC’s Quality Fleet Care program, which offered motor carriers ready access to safe, high-quality equipment, operational efficiencies and a choice of equipment to meet their needs.
