If the issue of chassis availability could be resolved it would have a major impact on the speed of the flow of goods through U.S. ports and could eliminate related additional charges for beneficial cargo owners. Currently the major chassis leasing companies, academics and technology providers are working together to form a solution to improve chassis tracking and demand forecasting.
