Chassis Usage Surcharge/Chassis Fee

Shipping containers

Especially in the United States of America, it is customary for the carriers (shipping lines) to supply their chassis to the exporters and importers.

This chassis is used for moving the container to and from the port.

A chassis usage surcharge is a fee for using a chassis in conjunction with the shipping container to facilitate overland transportation from the shipper’s door to the port.
