Lovetro said that with union questions resolved, the three
chassis leasing companies are more focused on resolving the
administrative process. He credited the port's productivity task
force for helping to advance the process.
"Something will have to happen in New York area chassis
pool because the market requires it," Vaughan said.
"A pool is like a social network," Lovetro said, relying on
consistent delivery of information and procedures that can best
be achieved through standardization.
Lawrence said that generally OCEMA's experience has been
a gray pool with a neutral operator provides the best solution to
supply safe and roadable chassis. In that environment, anyone
can contribute chassis that are allocated fairly by the neutral
operator. Notable examples of that approach are in place in
Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia, where

"Ports all around the country are looking at this solution,"
Lawrence said. "They are beginning to understand the potential

supply chain.
"Others have taken note of the successes in the Consolidated
Chassis Management pool," Lawrence said, noting that CCM's
chassis failure rate is less than half of one percent. "Maintenance

Another widely needed step is more freight visibility, several

Lawrence said there is a need across the intermodal industry
for better prediction of demand.

will lead to improved chassis billing accuracy and reduced
administrative costs throughout the supply chain," Shea said.
DCLI is using its REZ-1 platform for predictive models and
analytics to aid domestic equipment visibility, while entering the
dispatch market through the acquisition of International Asset
Systems.
Another important step forward, Lovetro said, is a transition
away from a highly variable "demand" model for chassis that kicks
in when a ship docks. "There is very little forecasted planning,"
he said. "Vessels are on the water for a long time. Having that
information in advance would be incredibly helpful."
More evolution is expected - and needed - from multiple
additional perspectives.

More Work to Do
Vaughan believes motor carriers and cargo owners will
continue to be more active in securing their own chassis capacity.
Leasing companies will keep adding services for them, such as
maintenance and repair, he added.
Lovetro said the lines remain committed overall to exiting the
chassis business, but not to speeding up the pace. "That's not the
