Innovation to Drive Trucking Forward: NACPC Makes 500 New Chassis Available for Member Use

“At NACPC, we’re always looking for ways to help provide access to modern equipment,” says President, Dave Manning. “It’s about efficiency, yes – but the bottom line is increased safety and reduced cost. It’s good for our members and great for the future of trucking.”

As of February 1st, NACPC has made the following additions to their fleet of available chassis:

  • 12 x 20’ and 260 x 40’ brand new chassis added to the MCCP.
  • 20 x 20′ and 200 x 40′ brand new chassis added to the SACP.

Later this month plans are in place to add an additional 280 new chassis with the approximate distribution of:

  • 160 x 40′ to the GCCP.
  • 15 x 20′ and 50 x40′ to the SACP.
  • 40 x 20′ and 25 x 40′ to Huntsville AL, part of the MCCP where contributions and utilization are tracked separately from other MCCP locations. These additions will more than double the current contribution in Huntsville.

“We’re excited to already be showing such growth in our offering in 2016,” says Manning. “We look forward to continuing to add to our offering in various pools throughout the year.”

NACPC Elevates Offering in the Gulf Region & Wilmington, NC

Building on the organization’s initial offering to motor carriers across the U.S., NACPC has finalized deals to add 750 new chassis into their inventory throughout the Gulf Region (GCCP) and Wilmington, NC. The Gulf has already received 100 chassis and will receive another 300-350 by mid-November. The Wilmington delivery was completed in July, bringing 300 standard chassis as well as 9 heavy-haul chassis (which are currently in production with Pratt Industries Inc.). The all-new chassis feature LED lights, radial tires and anti-lock brake systems. The 309 being placed in Wilmington will also feature auto-inflation functionality.

This is a significant development for the organization that, at the onset, solely offered chassis that they leased. With the purchase of these 750+ chassis NACPC now presents greater flexibility to clients and ensures a higher quality product.

“When we founded NACPC we said the quality of available chassis needed to change. With the purchase of these new chassis we’re making great strides toward moving the industry in that direction,” says NACPC President, Dave Manning.

In addition to elevating their product in order to offer optimal performance to motor carriers, Manning also says that NACPC is helping to keep the motor carriers’ drivers safe on the road. “The top violations drivers face at roadside inspections have to do with lights, tires & brakes. We’re innovating in all three categories, keeping carriers compliant, fewer chassis placed out of service & drivers safer on the roads.”
