Hampton Roads Chassis Pool has started implementing an update to the Option 2 program that enables ocean carriers to stop providing chassis in the Port of Virginia.
The technology used by HRCP, IAS ChassisManager, has undergone a product update that adds new features, simplified processes and new ocean carrier functionality. Updates to the program are focused on responding to motor carriers’ requests regarding the invoicing data and process, Virginia Port Authority said in a written statement. The changes include extending the time between invoices, introducing new data elements to the chassis trip view screen and adding payment and adjustment validations.
“This new phase for ChassisManager is focused on polishing the user experience and expanding the user base to include those transportation partners with more complex billing rules,” said Christopher Mazza, senior vice president of business development at IAS.
