Popular seminar to be held in conjunction with Virginia Maritime Assoc. Symposium

Oakland, CA and Norfolk, VA - April 19, 2016 - International Asset Systems® (IAS), the leader in cloud-based solutions the leader in cloud-based solutions for intermodal asset management, will be holding its popular Chassis University seminar in conjunction with the Virginia Maritime Association’s International Trade Symposium being held in Norfolk, May 11 - 13. IAS ChassisManager is the asset tracking and billing solution used by the Port of Virginia’s innovative Hampton Roads Chassis Pool (HRCP).

“HRCP relies on IAS ChassisManager to capture thousands of chassis events and execute complex billing rules to generate accurate and timely invoices twice per month,” said Art Ellermann, general manager of HRCP. “By the same token, there is a lot of functionality in the application itself that our chassis customers can use to monitor and manage their usage. Chassis University is a way for IAS to help the Tidewater trucking community maximize those capabilities.”

Cloud-based IAS ChassisManager enables intermodal equipment providers to track and bill third-party usage of their assets. Chassis users can view their rentals and trips in real time as well as dispute and reconcile events “pre-invoice.” Over 2000 motor carriers and other chassis users are connected to the platform in various regions and pools. 24x7 support is provided to ChassisManager users from IAS client service centers in Chicago and Hong Kong.

“As a sponsor of VMA’s Symposium and long term partner of HRCP, we are pleased to offer Chassis University to the Norfolk chassis user community,” commented Ed Schriger, IAS’ vice president of product. “The local user-base is expanding with the success of HRCP’s chassis program—in addition to motor carriers, beneficial cargo owners are also managing chassis on a larger scale—and we want everyone to get the most out of ChassisManager.”

The IAS Chassis University seminar will take place May 9-10, 2016 at the Portsmouth Marine Terminal operations center. Contact IAS at to register for the event.
