Direct ChassisLink, Port of Long Beach receive IANA's Intermodal Achievement award


The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) has named Direct ChassisLink Inc. and the Port of Long Beach winners of the IANA Intermodal Achievement Award for 2010.

The award is presented to either a public or private organization or government agency that has made the greatest contribution to the advancement of the intermodal freight transportation industry during the previous year, IANA officials said in a prepared statement.

Direct ChassisLink was recognized for its “innovative development of a neutral chassis pool that provides drayage companies with chassis that are able to be used with any ocean carriers’ containers,” IANA officials said.

Meanwhile, the Port of Long Beach was recognized for its leadership and development of “green” initiatives, specifically its efforts toward the "development and expedited implementation" of its Clean Trucks program, IANA officials said.

Awards will be presented during the opening general session of the 2010 Intermodal Expo on Nov. 15.
