The Pool of Pools
Offering Interoperability of Chassis Between Chassis Pools
The "Pool of Pools" (POP), is a new agreement between the three major pools in LA/LB. DCLP, TPSP and FLBP have developed a usage agreement between the pools to create chassis interoperability encompassing a combined fleet of approximately 80,000 chassis with an expanded set of 16 common start/stop locations covering the major Marine and Rail Facilities in the port complex.
Under the "Pool of Pools" operation, any chassis in the combined fleet can be utilized by any party who is an authorized user in one or more of the aforementioned pools. A chassis in the combined fleet can be utilized or dropped at any location named in the expanded set of stop/start locations, This "gray fleet" will increase overall efficiency and availability while eliminating chassis splits.
