Reminder Ocean Carrier Chassis update

In the past months, more ocean carriers have elected not to provide chassis for your incoming containers at port of discharge. Please note that so far lines including OOCL, Evergreen, CMA-CGM, Hanjin (June 1, 2012), U.S. Lines, Hapag Lloyd, Hyundai, Maersk, Safmarine and NYK (July 1, 2012) have implemented this policy. More and more lines are following this cost cutting procedure due to costly repair and maintenance of the ocean carrier owned chassis pool. This means to you that the trucker picking up your loads will have to use their own chassis. There will be an additional charge for this.
