New MOL Chassis Policy for North America – Effective May 1, 2014

Dear MOL Customer:                                    


Beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, May 1, 2014, unless otherwise specified in an individual service contract filing or tariff publication, MOL will no longer supply chassis for Merchant Haulage or “CY” moves in North America. 


As the cargo shipper, you, or your drayman, will be responsible for making arrangements to use proper, roadworthy chassis equipment when picking-up and delivering MOL containers. 


MOL believes the shipper or drayman will be able to achieve much more efficient use of the chassis than under the traditional approach used in the U.S. 


Selection of a Chassis Equipment Provider will be the choice of the shipper or the drayage company. 


The agreement to move a container and the responsibility to pay for the chassis will be decided between you and your drayman. Whether there is any cost impact will be determined by commercial, operational and other factors negotiated with your drayman.


For questions about MOL’s change in chassis provision policy, please contact your MOL Account Manager or Customer Service at 1-800-449-7575 or e-mail MOL Customer Service at:


Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
