TRAC Intermodal, formerly known as Seacastle Chassis, announces its new product, TRAC Connect designed to provide chassis rental, leasing and related services to the intermodal drayage community. TRAC Connect is a web-based marketplace for marine chassis needed on a short to medium term basis.
“As the steamship lines’transition away from providing chassis to motor carriers, TRAC Connect offers an innovative solution by allowing the motor carrier to enter into a chassis Interchange Agreement directly with TRAC Intermodal via the web”, commented Steve Rubin, President and CEO of TRAC Intermodal. Mr. Rubin went on to say that “the TRAC Connect product offers the value and efficiency of pooling, the availability and quality of TRAC Intermodal chassis, and the economy of only paying for on-demand usage.’ The centerpiece of TRAC Connect is the creation of a web-based platform to provide customers with a new level of transaction efficiency. ‘Meanwhile, our industry-leading PoolStat’ software is being enhanced to provide steamship lines with flexibility to develop customized chassis models as they seek to exit the chassis business on their own terms.”
TRAC Connect can be accessed through the Company’s website, www.tracconnect.com or call 1-877-9TRACCONNECT (1-877-987-2226). Once on the site registered customers can use various tools to manage their chassis activity. TRAC Connect customers can use the chassis for multiple moves and multiple terminals. TRAC Connect is available today through its MetroPool chassis pool, located in New York/New Jersey, Philadelphia and Baltimore; as well as Mobile, AL. ‘The Company is in the process of adding locations to meet anticipated future needs of its customers.
