What is a Chassis Split?

Chassis Split:

When a chassis needs to be picked up or dropped off by a truck at a different location than the pick up/delivery location of the container. This results in a driver needing to go to two separate locations to retrieve both the chassis and the shipment and it incurs a fee.

There are two varieties of chassis split. A split pick-up is when the ocean terminal that the shipment arrives at does not provide chassis and the driver has to make a separate trip to a chassis provider before the port.

Likewise, a split return refers to when containers are returned to the ocean terminal, but the terminal does not accept the chassis because of space or policies and the chassis must be delivered off-site.

A single shipment can require both a split pick up and a split return, resulting in two chassis fees.
