Change in Hamburg Süd Chassis Provisioning Model in Pacific Northwest
Hamburg Süd will revise in its chassis provision policy in major Northwest cities starting November 1, 2012.
Currently, Hamburg Süd sources chassis from the SSAT Pool (soon to be Trac Chassis Pool) for merchant's haulage and carrier conducted intermodal moves.
Moving forward, in and around the cities of Portland, Seattle and Tacoma, Hamburg Süd has a new chassis provisioning policy. As of November 1, the company will no longer serve as a chassis provider to shippers for cargo moving under merchant's haulage through terminals in the Pacific Northwest area.
From November on, shippers can procure equipment either directly from Trac Intermodal or other chassis vendors.
Carrier-provided intermodal moves will be unaffected by this change.
