Chassis pool for Charleston/Savannah

The Federal Maritime Commission has ruled it will allow ports to establish a  common chassis pool for their marine terminals and inland operations.

The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) voted to take no action to prevent the new Southern States Chassis Pool Agreement (SSCPA, FMC Agreement No. 201262) from becoming effective. The SSCPA was filed at the Commission on June 18, 2018 with an effective date of August 2, 2018.


“Under the terms of the agreement, the two port authorities will establish and administer a common chassis pool serving the ports in Charleston and Savannah as well as associated intermodal terminals and depots located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee,” the FMC stated.


The agreement sets out that the authorities may set up a board to establish rules, policies and procedures related to the Chassis Pool, the number of assets and their specifications, manage chassis maintenance and set the rates at which chassis may be offered to users, “provided that the rates will be on a utility model sufficient to sustain the chassis pool and the costs of administration, but without profit to the Ports.”


The agreement will remain in effect indefinitely and is subject to similar monitoring and reporting requirements as other agreements on file at the FMC.
