WEEKLY Operations Update – Monday 05/18/20

  • Last week, we have seen an uptick in chassis utilization levels in the Gulf region, while the rest if the U.S. remained unchanged or showed a slight decline.
  • With an increase in utilization, chassis dwell times are also increasing due to limited storage space. Monitoring dwell times will be critical for the supply chain to keep intermodal equipment turning to ensure the capacity for any spikes in demand.
  • We expect a slowdown of chassis utilization in May as blank sailings increase throughout North America.
  • TRAC’s field operations continue to serve customers in all markets. In addition, our office employees are equipped to seamlessly support our customers and service partners via phone or email in a secure and productive environment, while working remotely.
  • TRAC continues its fleet readiness programs, including M&R and Safety Stock to make road-ready chassis available for customers once trade rebounds.
