The NACPC’s New Orleans pool is fleeted with new 40-foot chassis featuring radial tires, LED lights, ABS and auto-inflation systems that can be leased direct to motor carriers or beneficial cargo owners for daily, short- and long-term use.
The North American Chassis Pool Cooperative (NACPC), a Nashville, Tenn.-based intermodal chassis leasing company, is launching of a Premium Chassis Pool at the Port of New Orleans, the NACPC said July 17.
The new 40-foot premium pool is fleeted with new chassis featuring radial tires, LED lights, ABS and auto-inflation systems, according to the NACPC, and can be leased direct to motor carriers or beneficial cargo owners for daily, short- and long-term use, allowing maritime carriers and beneficial cargo owners to utilize the cooperative’s at-cost pricing model.
NACPC said that it, in partnership with Consolidated Chassis Management, is commencing operation of the 40-ft Premium Chassis Pool at Ports America, 5901 Terminal Dr., New Orleans, LA, 70115.
Under the pool process, the customer simply picks up chassis from Ports America and is invoiced from date of interchange – out to date of interchange – in back to Ports America. The process also allows customers to use and be invoiced by NACPC directly for new chassis on merchant haulage moves returning to Ports America.
Carriers may obtain approval for use by signing up on the NACPC website.
