What is a chassis pool?

A chassis pool is a location where chassis are stored and available for rental.

There are two types of chassis pools:

Neutral Chassis Pool

A neutral chassis pool consists of third-party owned chassis that are available to ocean carriers and truckers for rental.

Co-op Chassis Pool

A co-op chassis pool consists of ocean carrier–owned chassis that are pooled together to reduce costs.

A chassis split fee might apply if the chassis pool is located in a different area than the container pickup.
