Transportation equipment company Milestone Chassis is looking to address nationwide chassis shortages with several service improvements and two new locations.
Milestone has expanded offerings for the Los Angeles-Long Beach, Calif., market, including after-hours pickup (5 p.m. or later) and an increase in inventory levels for available equipment types (40-foot gooseneck, 20-foot tri-axels and 20-foot sliders).
To better serve Midwestern markets, Milestone will open locations in Cleveland and Detroit. The former has close proximity to Norfolk Southern and CSX rail ramps, the latter to Norfolk Southern, CSX, CP and CN rail ramps.
“We listened to our customers,” Milestone Executive Vice President Doug Hoehn said in a press release. “We have demonstrated our commitment to being the nation’s premiere intermodal lessor in 2018 — you can expect a continuation of these efforts in 2019. We will continue to evolve our offering in line with market needs.”
