Industry Changes / The Supply of
Chassis to the Motor Carrier by the
S.S. Lines
• Traditionally, Motor Carriers could access S.S. Line chassis @ Marine
Terminals and Railroad Ramps & not be billed for the use of the chassis.
• Recently, various S.S. Lines have declared that the Motor Carrier must
provide their own chassis in various USA locations.
• Philadelphia is one of the locations, named by several lines, that Motor
Carriers must provide their own chassis.
Motor Carrier Options
• Motor Carrier to secure their own fleet.
• Straight Chassis Lease from Flexi-Van Leasing,
Inc. 16 locations throughout the U.S.A. and 1
location in Canada.
• Flexi-Day Program – daily rental rate/ pick and
drop chassis same day.
• Chassis Pool User Agreement- access chassis
@ Marine Terminals, Railroad Ramps &
container yards.
Servicing Philadelphia
Currently, Flexi-Van Leasing, Inc. provides chassis to Motor
Carriers from it’s facility in Camden, New Jersey:
Reliable Trailer
2630 Mt. Ephraim Avenue
Camden, New Jersey 08104
856-962-7900
Chassis types available:
20’ sliders, 40’ gooseneck, 45’, 20’ &40’ triaxle, 20’ tank and 40’ tridem chassis.
Future Plans for Philadelphia
Flexi-Van intends to expand it’s chassis
operation into Philadelphia to provide near
and on dock access to chassis.
Current Chassis Shortages
• Motor Carriers to lease chassis on a long term
agreement to ensure availability of chassis.
• Daily leasing from multiple chassis providers in
and around the Philadelphia area.
• More than one chassis provider on water
terminal, rail ramps – giving the Motor Carrier
a choice of vendors and the ability to
negotiate pricing.

-FMCSA RegulationsImpact of these Costs to Flexi-Van
Leasing, Inc.
• As a leasing company, we have always
followed D.O.T./IICL criteria when repairing
chassis.
• Registering chassis in the GIER and following
up on DVIR’s (Driver Vehicle Inspection Report’s) & DVER’s
(Driver Vehicle Examination Report) has had a nominal
effect on FV’s costs.
