Chicago Ohio Valley Cooperative Chassis Pool Beginning Next Year

BNSF is one of several railroads participating in Consolidated Chassis Management LLC (CCM), an affiliate of the Ocean Carrier Equipment Management Association (OCEMA), cooperative chassis pools. These pools have been introduced at various BNSF facilities to help improve chassis operational efficiencies.

As you may be aware, CCM is moving forward with the implementation of the Chicago Ohio Valley Chassis Pool (COCP) in the first quarter of 2009.

The creation and successful start-up of a “grey” common-use chassis pool is important to BNSF. Given the size and complexity of this particular pool, we recognize the potential for customers to incur additional fleet preparation start-up costs. To help mitigate these additional expenses, BNSF will offer a specific set of cost-saving incentives. Your BNSF Marketing Representative will contact you with details regarding these incentives soon.

Your business is important to us. Thank you for choosing BNSF as your transportation service provider.
