The Federal Maritime Commission has requested that the parties to the Consolidated Chassis Management Pool Agreement (CCM), FMC Agreement No. 011962, provide additional information regarding the filing of Amendment No. 009 to the Agreement pursuant to 46 U.S.C. § 40304(d). The proposed amendment would allow contributors to the CCM chassis pools, including non-regulated entities, such as, chassis leasing companies and motor carriers, to serve on the Governing Board of CCM Pools LLC and on the Boards of the Individual Pools, among other things.

The FMC will review comments on the proposed amendment from interested parties that are received by March 28, 2013. Comments must be filed with the Commission’s Secretary. A copy of the Consolidated Management Pool Agreement and pending Amendment 009, are available on the Commission’s website at http://www2.fmc.gov/agreements.
