TRAC Intermodal is continuing its investment in its fleet by adding 16,000 premium chassis in 2018 in a modernization program intended to provide the intermodal industry easy access to quality equipment.
The company is adding 8,000 new and 8,000 fully refurbished chassis featuring LED lights, OEM tires, new brake systems and all-new wiring harnesses to a fleet that serves several key markets. The company will be supplying this modernized, premium quality equipment throughout 2018.
“We’re on track to meet the ambitious plans we set for ourselves to modernize our marine chassis fleet and provide our customers with the most reliable equipment available in the industry,” said Keith Lovetro, president and chief executive officer at TRAC Intermodal.
TRAC began its fleet modernization program in 2015. Since then, more than 40 percent of its Metro Pool, 25 percent of its Gulf Regional Pool and 15 percent of its Marine East Pool fleets have been upgraded with premium chassis to support the industry’s need for safety, performance and operational flexibility.
“As the industry leader, TRAC is committed to meeting our customers’ requirements for chassis that are safe, high-quality and always available through the TRAC chassis pools across the country,” Lovetro said.
