Thailand trailer manufacturer Panus will supply 3,000 intermodal container chassis to the newly established Panus USA., marking its entrance into the U.S. market.
In March, Panus delivered 150 container chassis so far. A further 7,000 trailers are planned to be delivered in 2023, and another 12,000 in 2024.
“The container chassis market in the United States is quite significant – more than 800,000 units operating in the service of ocean carriers, railroads, truckers, and leasing companies. Demand exceeds supply, and both additional and replacement equipment are needed,” Panus USA Director Ayman Awad said in a press release.
Panus developed and manufactured a new line of trailers for North America to meet the market’s growing chassis demand and has patents pending on their twist locks system and its loading process that allows Panus to drop ship chassis in any port or inland location in the USA loaded in 40-foot high cube containers.
The container chassis will be built to U.S. market specifications by Panus Assembly Thailand, and then be shipped to the U.S.
Panus has been supplying transport solutions to the Southeast Asian, Australian, and South African markets. The company specializes in manufacturing a range of heavy transport equipment such as container trailers, tankers, municipal truck equipment, dump trucks, and cargo truck bodies.
