International Asset Systems (IAS), provider of cloud-based systems for intermodal transportation and global container shipping, announces new developments in the ChassisManager program at Hampton Roads Chassis Pool (HRCP).
ChassisManager has undergone a product update that adds new features, simplified processes, and new ocean carrier functionality. New ocean carrier partners with exception-based billing rules have joined the ocean carriers already using ChassisManager.
Updates to ChassisManager are focused on responding to motor carriers’ requests regarding the invoicing data and process. Changes include extending the time period between invoices, introducing new data elements to the chassis trip view screen, and adding payment and adjustment validations. The ChassisManager release also allows ocean carriers to log in and review trips related to their containers.
On April 1, four ocean carriers (OOCL, Cosco, Hyundai, and Hanjin) began sending data that determines if a chassis trip should be billed to the ocean carrier or to the motor carrier using the chassis. These ocean carriers join others already using simpler business rules within ChassisManager. Additional ocean carriers are scheduled for onboarding over the next two months. HRCP and IAS have worked closely with the ocean carriers to translate complex exception-based billing rules into clear invoicing information in the ChassisManager system. The most recent update to the application provides advanced visibility as to how these moves are being billed.
