    Waiting on the Rebound: Will There Be Enough Chassis to Go Around?

    It’s the critical piece of equipment for that final mile: the chassis. No container goes on the road without one. That became very clear in the COVID-related boom in freight demand in 2020-2022 when there were chronic shortages of available chassis across major inland hubs. Now that the supply-and-demand curve is balanced, chassis providers are trying to learn from what happened and be better prepared for the rebound. In this session, we will explore those lessons learned and how three chassis lessors will apply that knowledge going forward.
