CHASSIS POOL FORMED AT NY-NJ PORT

CHASSIS POOL FORMED AT NY-NJ PORT

Atlantic Container Line, Columbus Line, Mediterranean Shipping Co. USA, Polish Ocean Lines, United Arab Shipping Co. and Maher Terminals recently formed a cooperative steamship line chassis pool in the Port of New York and New Jersey.

The steamship lines will be able to pick up or deliver containers using a common chassis.The cooperative pool uses a depot, in addition to traditional pooling techniques.

Maher and Tripoli Marine Terminals help streamline the pool, with off- terminal processing of gate transactions and express access and exit to and

from the marine terminals.

As a result, trucker turn- around time should be reduced, and more chassis should be available.
