40ft-ultralight-chassis_whiteout.jpg (1)

Weighing in around 4,950 lbs, our 40’ Lightweight chassis maximizes your 40’ container carrying capacity. Using high tensile steel fabricated I-beams we have been able to reduce the weight by over 1,000 lbs compared to our standard 40 ft container chassis. This allows you to haul bigger loads while maintaining the strength and durability you need to keep you on the road.
