Maersk to Begin Daily Chassis Charge
Maersk Line to begin charging for chassis usage beginning June 1st, 2010.
Maersk has continued to move forward with it’s Chassis Management Program. After introducing the program in the Northeast and Midwest, Maersk has announced the expansion of the program into the Gulf and Pacific Northwest region. The program will eliminate Maersk Line from having any chassis’s in stock and instead is opening an affiliated company called Chassis Link which will lease chassis’s for use with any steamship line container for a daily charge. This will mean that all Maersk containers will now have to use either a chassis link chassis or trucking companies will have to provide their own chassis.
