Flexi-Van Leasing, Inc. has been appointed to manage the combined Northeast chassis fleet for NYK Line and Orient Overseas Container Line.
Beginning Nov. 3, NYK and OOCL will begin sharing chassis in the New York-New Jersey area. This pool currently includes all chassis owned and leased by the lines (excluding tri-axles and genset chassis) in the New York/New Jersey area.
This means truckers can use an NYK or OOCL chassis regardless of the box owner when picking up containers from Global Terminal, New York Container Terminal, Port Newark Container Terminal, CSX' South Kearny ramp, Ironbound Depot and Norfolk Southern's Croxton ramp.
Chassis repairs at the major rail ramps will be performed by the vendor who owns the chassis, according to a letter to truckers from Flexi-Van.
