Company Profile

About Penn Intermodal Leasing, LLC

In 1988, Penn Intermodal Leasing, LLC., was a newcomer in the chassis leasing business leasing chassis to steamship carriers and intermodal transporters.  Very quickly the company’s founder realized that there was a need for chassis specially designed to move overweight loads.  The standard chassis were soon retired, and Penn Intermodal invested in a focused fleet of specialized chassis to move overweight and liquid bulk freight.

Penn grew with the intermodal industry by pioneering the specialized chassis business and by providing exceptional customer service, building individual and personal relationships with customers a few chassis at a time.

In the beginning, industry compliance with respect to overweight shipments was minimal.  Penn Leasing, an intermodal equipment provider assisted with educating the intermodal industry on the engineering, safety considerations, and the additional revenue to be earned from shipping heavy containers.  Compliant shipments of overweight freight gradually increased as a result of growing awareness of the economic value of adhering to safety standards and the reduced operating costs of utilizing specialized chassis.  Penn continues to support innovation within the intermodal industry and regularly offer to educate customers on new developments in special purpose chassis and the benefits of legally compliant shipping of overweight freight.

Case Study

When an international chemical and specialty materials manufacturer requested a regional trucker to move overweight plate glass cargo from Wichita Falls to Houston, TX the trucker contacted Penn Intermodal Leasing to identify the appropriate chassis for this specialized load.  Penn’s CEO personally flew to the factory and walked the floor in order to assess the cargo and understand the freight and the way it was loaded.  Penn in turn provided the appropriate solution: a superslider triaxle chassis that readily handled the overweight load.
