    Marine Chassis: Will We Reach Equilibrium in 2023?

    For the second consecutive year, chassis shortages disrupted the supply chain and prevented shippers from getting their containers delivered in a timely fashion. The problem was acute in Chicago, Dallas, Memphis, Kansas City, and several other smaller markets. As import volumes decline, however, could the equipment problem resolve itself? Will a decline in imports and higher production out of chassis manufacturers to pump out more chassis lead to a balance in the middle of the supply-and-demand curve? How do we ensure there won’t be an overcorrection with too many chassis built for yesterday’s surge that collect dust in today’s slowdown? And will truckers gravitate toward owning their chassis rather than rely on third parties? In this session, we will explore these questions and what it means toward ensuring chassis are no longer a headline story in 2023.
