FMCSA issues intermodal chassis inspection waiver

Regulators are giving intermodal chassis providers a three-month reprieve from required annual inspections for recently expired equipment to help alleviate disruptions caused by COVID-19.

The waiver, issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) on June 1, was granted to the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) on behalf of ocean carriers, railroads, leasing companies, and motor carriers with chassis registered in IANA’s Global Intermodal Equipment Registry (GIER). The database includes 705,000 chassis that comprise approximately 90% of the chassis managed in North America.
