One-On-One with Bill Shea

Bill Shea



The chassis industry has come a long way since carriers 10 years ago began to sell their assets to intermodal equipment providers. After some growing pains, truck and rail carriers have adjusted to the new environment, and for the most part are securing the chassis they need at ports and inland ramps. However, spot shortages and dislocations are still issues, especially during periods of peak usage. Bill Shea, CEO of Direct ChassisLink, will address JOC Uncharted on where the industry is today and where it is headed as IEPs work with their customers to ensure they have access to sufficient — and safe — chassis.   

Trans-Atlantic Turmoil: The Slowing Europe-US Trade 

COVID-19 is testing the stability of the trans-Atlantic trade, with a sharp decline in demand on east- and westbound routes. Carriers have canceled scores of sailings to match capacity with falling volumes through the third quarter. Although this has prevented a rate collapse, it also has led to worsening service levels with growing reports of cargo rolling. In this segment of JOC Uncharted, we’ll discuss the trans-Atlantic trade with Alison Leavitt, managing director of the Wine and Spirits Shippers Association in the US, and Markus Panhauser, head of European ocean freight and China rail at DHL Global Forwarding.
