Often the chassis customer has little choice in choosing its chassis provider. A container is placed on a chassis at the rail or ocean terminal before the motor carrier arrives for pick up. Unless the container is taken off the chassis and placed on another chassis, the chassis provider is already determined by the ocean container. Within a CCM pool, there are many chassis providers and some of them participate in a program that allows the customer to choose a chassis provider without having to lift the container onto a new chassis.
CCM can allow the chassis customer to select their preferred chassis provider in its pools on specified chassis movement. There are some restrictions. Shippers and motor carriers can choose a provider when the ocean carrier and the ocean carrier's on-terminal chassis provider participate in this CCM program.
Send them to email@example.com and a CCM representative will respond.
