The North American Chassis Pool Cooperative, or NACPC, was founded in 2012 with the goal of providing a modern fleet of chassis to users with at cost pricing. The cooperative is committed to supporting the U.S. intermodal container network with an efficient chassis inventory. Use of NACPC chassis is open to all qualified motor carriers.
Contributory “gray pools” allow users to draw any chassis from the pool regardless of ownership. The contributory pool model thus eliminates duplicative costs and maximizes the use of limited space at port and or inland intermodal locations by obviating the need for a contributor to have its own chassis storage facility. It also ensures an adequate supply of chassis for all users. The pool managers are responsible for chassis logistics, inventory supply, maintenance and repair and the repositioning of the chassis but usage arrangements are determined between the chassis contributor and its user. Contributory gray pools foster competition by allowing motor carrier users to select from more than one chassis provider. Currently, NACPC operates more than 18,000 chassis in four CCM managed pools; MCCP, COCP, GCCP & SACP. For more information, please visit www.NACPC.org.
Consolidated Chassis Management (CCM) was formed in 2005 to address industry needs in developing a more efficient model for operating chassis. CCM is the largest cooperative pool manager in the US, overseeing over 135,000 chassis and offers pool management, private fleet and chassis data management services.
