Hamburg Süd will implement a revised policy on chassis provision in the Charleston, S.C.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Savannah, Ga.; and Atlanta areas, effective Oct. 1.
Currently, Hamburg Süd sources chassis from the South Atlantic Consolidated Chassis Pool for merchant’s haulage and carrier conducted intermodal moves. As of Oct. 1, in and around the cities of Charleston, Jacksonville, Savannah and Atlanta, the container line will no longer serve as a provider of chassis for cargo moving under merchant’s haulage through the area terminals and depots. Instead, shippers, their agents or consignees can procure equipment directly from TRAC Intermodal or from various other chassis vendors. Carrier provided intermodal moves will be unaffected by this change.
