Containers sit due to chassis shortage
Container Chassis Shortage
The surge of import shipments coming into the United States continues at an unprecedented pace creating ongoing chassis shortages.
  • DCs are holding containers/chassis longer before unloading.
  • It’s taking longer to move chassis back into the system.
  • Broken chassis are not being fixed quickly because of COVID-19 workplace restrictions.
  • Rail yards in Chicago offer two free days.
  • Current dwell times in Chicago average nearly six days.
  • Shortage issues are being reported across the country: LA/Long Beach, New York, Cleveland, Columbus, Atlanta, Nashville.

Be prepared to pay additional demmurage/storage charges.
