Production Outlook Varies Among Chassis Manufacturers

Posted 9 years ago

How bright container chassis production looks for this year depends on who you ask.  Two major chassis manufacturers shared their views with Transport Topics. 

According to Murray Zwickels from a Philadephia based manufacturing company, "We are not up to the same production levels as two years ago".  The company expects to build less chassis in 2011 than they did in 2008.  This drop is partly due to the uncertainty about who will provide intermodal chassis (i.e, ocean carriers, leasing companies) in the future.

On the other hand, "The change from steamship-owned equipment to drayman-owned equipment is a boost for Chassis King as several intermodal trucking companies are buying" said Donald Pratt from Chassis King, Inc.  "We have no shortage of production capacity at this time".
