    Intermodal V: Containers, Chassis, and the Pursuit of Equipment to Meet Demand

    With a surge in international imports and domestic intermodal traffic, the supply chain needs more equipment to efficiently move the freight. To satisfy demand, there must be more containers, more chassis, and more productivity in the intermodal networks. But not everyone is making the same level of investment. While large intermodal providers, less-than-truckload providers, and US retailers are growing their container fleets, US Class I railroads Norfolk Southern and Union Pacific are focusing instead on buying more chassis. Equipment lessors DCLI and Milestone Equipment Holdings have felt the pressure to supply enough equipment to move the freight. This session will analyze the investments in containers, chassis, and other equipment necessary to handle the future of freight.
