Consolidated Chassis Management (CCM), a chassis pool manager, announced it has opened a new, expanded office in Savannah, Georgia, to accommodate the growing South Atlantic Chassis Pool (SACP) 3.0 team.
SACP 3.0 is scheduled to launch in October 2023, and it will offer a new chassis provisioning solution that utilises a single provider pool model.
SACP 3.0 will transition from the current multi-contributor chassis pool to a single provider utility type pool, and offer over 50,000 chassis to truckers, beneficial cargo owners, ocean carriers and other port users, CCM reported in a statement.
The pool is being established cooperatively by The Ocean Carrier Equipment Management Association (OCEMA), Georgia Ports Authority (GPA), Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT), North Carolina State Ports Authority (NC Ports) and Consolidated Chassis Management LLC (CCM).
It will increase and upgrade the existing South Atlantic Chassis Pool with new and refurbished intermodal chassis from major regional ports and key intermodal inland hubs, according to CCM.
“As we get closer to launch, we are building our teams, expanding our office space and enhancing CIT, our fleet management platform – all to provide the support necessary to ensure SACP 3.0 reaches its full potential,” said Mike Wilson, CEO, CCM.

SACP 3.0 will continue to be the largest fully interoperable chassis pool in the US, with more than 75 locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
“The new office is not only larger, but it is also more conveniently located, bringing us closer to GPA as well as other members of the supply chain community, including steamship lines and BCOs,” said Wilson.
This announcement comes several months after the GPA Board approved the renovation and realignment of the docks at the Port of Savannah’s Ocean Terminal in a bid to expand container operation.
