2 Ocean Chassis Pool Survey - 2012 224 unique drayage operations were eddraymen were listed on the LoadMatch Drayage Directory website as serving Chicago intermodal rail terminals, based in IL, IN, MI, OH, WI, ON504 individual s were sent to those in dispatch, operations, management76 total responses39 filled out from first request.37 more filled out after second request
3 When your driver arrives to pull a 20/40’ container…
5 In general, how would you rate each of the intermodal ramp terminals for 2012? Which terminals do the best or worse at getting your drivers in & out for all container/trailer types?BNSF–LPC/Elwood66% Good rating (of 76)UP–Global IV /Joliet63% Good rating (of 72)NS–Landers54% Bad rating (of 70)CN–Harvey78% Bad rating (of 74)
6 Final ThoughtsU.S. is only place where chassis are provided to drayage truckers (Canada, Europe, everywhere else, drayage truckers bring their own wheels to pull containers)If both railroads AND draymen prefer wheeled ramps…how do we get the ramp operator to stop placing bad chassis next to ramp track?Government regulation of pool chassis?Create a ‘placement interchange’ like a J1 so ramp lift operator guarantees they placed a container onto a good chassis?
