Maersk Chassis Lease Firm to Expands Into Pac NW and Gulf

A.P. Moller-Maersk subsidiary Direct ChassisLink has announced plans to expand its chassis lease services into the Pacific Northwest and the Gulf of Mexico starting June 1.

The North Carolina-based Direct ChassisLink, which already offers leased chassis to drayage firms at container yards, marine terminals and railroads in Chicago, the Midwest, the Northeast and the Ohio Valley, will begin offering the service to customers in Houston, New Orleans and Mobile, Alabama, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington.

“Over 1000 truckers are currently participating in the program in the Northeast, Ohio Valley and Midwest regions with great success. Less time swapping chassis means more time servicing their customers, reduced fuel costs resulting in a direct and immediate benefit from this program,” said Direct ChassisLink Vice President Andy Chinigo.

Direct ChassisLink plans to have 20,000 chassis available through its system by June 1.
