Becoming a co-op pool member
Becoming a co-op pool member is for those who wish to contribute equipment to the co-op pool and use the co-op pool.By contributing chassis and joining the pool directly you become part of the CCM Membership. In addition to ocean carriers and equipment providers membership is also open to motor carriers, BCO’ NVOCC’s or any other party that would contribute chassis.
The CCM interoperable chassis pool is proven to be the most efficient operation for pool participants, intermodal terminals and motor carriers. Chassis Pool members, also known as the “Providers”, contribute chassis to the common pool and have access to pool chassis at all common locations. This network applies to all members.
CCM Cooperative Pools are “open membership” interoperable chassis pools
CCM Members (also known as Providers) benefit from a significant reduction in chassis management cost and increased service when compared to the alternatives of managing maintenance, logistics, and storage of equipment.
Co-Op Pool Costs
Costs in CCM Cooperative Pools reflect costs that are incurred in the operation of the pool along with a share of administrative costs. These costs are shared by established formulas and standards.
For more information on our formulas and standards, access the CCM Pools Operations Manual.
The following PDFs are provided as a guideline for those who are interested in becoming new members of the CCM pools.
