MOTOR CARRIERS AND SHIPPERS
Often the chassis customer has little choice in choosing its chassis provider. A container is placed on a chassis at the rail or ocean terminal before the motor carrier arrives for pick up. Unless the container is taken off the chassis and placed on another chassis, the chassis provider is already determined by the ocean container. Within a CCM pool, there are many chassis providers and some of them participate in a program that allows the customer to choose a chassis provider without having to lift the container onto a new chassis.
Through the Choice Program you can choose your own chassis provider. That means…
- Your own terms
- Your own rate
- With your chassis provider.
We are the only pool to offer Motor Carrier/Shipper Choice.
CCM can allow the chassis customer to select their preferred chassis provider in its pools on specified chassis movement. There are some restrictions. Shippers and motor carriers can choose a provider when the ocean carrier and the ocean carrier’s on-terminal chassis provider participate in this CCM program.
The FAQ document explains the process for making these changes. A list of the ocean carriers allowing choice by exception may be found by clicking the link to chassis provider search.
Send them to email@example.com and a CCM representative will respond.
