The Federal Maritime Commission has asked Consolidated Chassis Management to provide more information on its request to permit lessors, truckers and other equipment contributors to serve on the boards of CCM and its regional pools.
CCM, created in 2004, operates six regional chassis pools that include more than one-fifth of the estimated 500,000 international marine chassis in use in the United States.
The chassis cooperative won FMC approval last year to allow leasing companies, truckers, shippers and others to contribute chassis to its pools. CCM now is seeking permission for these entities, which the FMC does not regulate, to serve on the co-ops’ boards.
The FMC set a March 28 deadline for comments on the proposed change.
