Trac Intermodal and American Made Chassis (AMC) have partnered to increase Trac’s fleet of 40-foot chassis in a bid to increase chassis supply, especially amid the ongoing import surge and elevated equipment dwell time.
AMC is an alliance of LB Steel and Integrated Industries.
The agreement calls for LB to build frames, while Integrated Industries will blast, paint and install all equipment components at its Dixmoor facility in Illinois, Trac Intermodal said.
Chassis made by AMC are already being injected into the system, according to Trac.
“TRAC Intermodal continues to invest record amounts of capital to supply our customers’ continued growth and expansion,” Trac President and CEO Daniel Walsh said. “To support this, TRAC is eager to expand our long-term partnership with proven, high-quality manufacturers such as AMC who are perfectly positioned to help us increase our fleet, maintain market leadership and keep commerce flowing.”
