TRAC Intermodal said it has made significant investments to expand and improve the quality of its Metro Pool chassis fleet in order to support the record growth in the NY/NJ port.
 
TRAC said it has refurbished thousands of chassis to “like new” condition to ensure customers receive the highest quality and most reliable chassis available. The refurbished equipment features LED lights, OEM tires, new brake systems, all new electrical wiring and are painted TRAC Blue.
 
“We have upgraded over 35 percent of our Metro Pool fleet and will continue to do so until the entire fleet has been refurbished,” said Keith Lovetro, President and Chief Executive Officer at TRAC Intermodal. “TRAC is also expanding its Metro Pool fleet by more than 10 percent to support the port’s growth.”
 
TRAC has established three near dock chassis distribution locations: two in Port Elizabeth and one in Bayonne. Each of these chassis distribution points “pre-trip” chassis and make them available in “ready rows” to expedite motor carriers’ pick-up of the equipment.
 
“We are absolutely committed to having the highest quality equipment available for our Metro Pool customers and, to date, the approach appears to be working very well. We’ll continue investing in the Metro Pool chassis fleet, services and technologies to help facilitate additional volume growth and overall port activity,” said Lovetro.
