Combo Chassis

Combo Chassis Definition:

Combo chassis are wheeled metal frameworks used to transport a wide range of container types. They are designed to haul containers via trucks between warehouses, ports, and terminals.

Combo chassis comprises a steel framework with tires and an attached axle system. They are used to transport shipping containers safely and efficiently. In addition, combo chassis are sturdy and strong, thus protecting containers from sharp vibrations and sudden movements while in transit. They provide versatility in transporting different models, sizes, and types of shipping containers, eliminating the need for specialized chassis for every container type.
