TRAC Intermodal has reported investing more than $1 billion over the past 10 years to expand and modernize its marine chassis fleet.

The investments cover the addition of “tens of thousands” of new chassis and TRAC’s debut of the BlueEdge Chassis Refurbishing program. Since 2018, the company has upgraded or added 40,000 new chassis to its U.S. fleet, TRAC reported.

Also, since 2015, TRAC has added new or upgraded chassis to 65% of its Metro Pool, 60% of its Gulf Regional Pool, 45% of its Pacific Southwest Pool and 30% of its Marine Eastern Pool fleets.

Earlier this year, TRAC announced that its Tire Services division, which handles tire retreading, will exclusively serve the company’s marine chassis fleet.

More critically, we aim to continue to invest in the expansion and modernization of TRAC’s fleet to support the growth of our customers and ensure they continue to have access to the highest quality and most reliable chassis in the industry.”
