A Look Back on IANA EXPO 2017!

IANA EXPO is always a great time to connect & learn! This year presented new opportunities to share with customers

Milestone at IANA EXPO 2017

around how we continue to push intermodal forward through:

  • The growth of America’s newest chassis fleet, launched in the past year, now expanding nationwide!
  • The benefits of reduced M&R (as well as the bottom line) through the use of new equipment.
  • Flexible leasing options, expert service & more!

Thank you to our customers, vendors & friends that joined us at our reception on Sunday. It was wonderful to get together with you to kick off such an incredible few days at IANA EXPO 2017!

IANA EXPO 2016: We Came, We Saw, We Launched

This year marked a true “milestone.” For the Intermodal Association of North America, the celebration of their 25th Expo. For our organization, the launch of the Milestone Chassis division and its modernized chassis program. Recently we celebrated both in Houston at the 2016 IANA EXPO.

It was a pleasure to celebrate both events with so many friends throughout the industry. In addition to meeting with current and prospective customers in our booth over coffee while one of our new chassis was on view , we had the chance to demo ChassisFinder.com (now part of the Milestone portfolio) and highlight the chassis inventory in our expanded equipment fleet.

Our own Jordan Ayers was included on the panel “OTR Capacity Shortages – Will the Predictions Come True?”  Since there have not been any OTR capacity shortages this year the panel moderator, Larry Gross had the panel address other intermodal industry shortages, like chassis. Ayers commented on the surge in chassis bookings due to Hanjin Shipping’s recent bankruptcy. He noted the inability to return Hanjin containers to the terminal operators, railroads, and Hanjin’s depots as a key factor in causing the current chassis shortage. img_7498Many motor carriers are being forced to store mounted Hanjin containers on chassis for extended periods. Milestone has quickly responded by delivering more new chassis to the effected markets, living up to their customer-centric reputation.

This has been, and will continue to be a period of growth for our company, as we innovate and provide chassis solutions to meet customer needs. We look forward to introducing Milestone Chassis to all of our Intermodal partners throughout North America!
