FMC approved the chassis pool agreement

The South Carolina Ports Authority and Georgia Ports Authority will be able to establish a common chassis pool serving customers throughout the Southeast as the result of the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) voting today to take no action to prevent the Southern States Chassis Pool Agreement (SSCPA, FMC Agreement No. 201262) from becoming effective.

The SSCPA was filed at the Commission on June 18, 2018 with an effective date of August 2, 2018.

Under the terms of the agreement, the two port authorities will establish and administer a common chassis pool serving the ports in Charleston and Savannah as well as associated intermodal terminals and depots located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

The agreement will remain in effect indefinitely and is subject to similar monitoring and reporting requirements as other agreements on file at the FMC.
