GLOBAL LOGISTICS PROFILE Direct ChassisLink Inc. was formed in 2009, when Maersk Equipment Service Co. began using the DCLI brand with an objective to market marine container chassis directly to motor carriers. MESC was originally formed in 1974 by Maersk Line. In early 2012, DCLI was spun-off from Maersk with a charter to further expand its solid foundation in the chassis-leasing space. Beginning with 64,000 chassis, DCLI has grown its fleet through strategic acquisitions and organic activities. Further, to advance technology- based solutions to the industry in 2014, DCLI acquired REZ-1, a leader in logistics technology solutions. REZ-1 offers a complete suite of asset management software solutions that include tracking, inventory and financial management services for containers, chassis and train slot programs. Our software provides simplified access to targeted information, allowing equipment stakeholders and their customers to make the best possible decisions to move freight and manage their business efficiently. DCLI currently operates a fleet of more than 117,000 chassis throughout the United States, located in strategic port and intermodal locations. DCLI's fleet is the youngest marine chassis fleet in the United States and is maintained at the highest industry safety and service levels. DCLI OFFERS SUPERIOR CHASSIS AND SERVICE: In early 2015, DCLI initiated a campaign to upgrade its chassis fleet with radial tires and LED lights. These equipment upgrades provide a superior, safer chassis for the motor carrier. In addition, DCLI provides a comprehensive Emergency Road Service Policy with access to a nationwide emergency roadside repair network, enabling quick turnaround of repairs.
