Task Force

Damage Prevention Outreach Program Task Force

Leader: Andrew Knouse, Norfolk Southern Corporation

The Task Force’s goal is to raise awareness and share information regarding preventable chassis damage with stakeholders involved in moving, storing and maintaining chassis. Presentation tools and resources, which could include documents, slides, and/or handouts, may be utilized by IANA members during local outreach events to highlight proper use and handling of intermodal chassis and the operational and safety benefits of doing so.

Preventative Maintenance Task Force

Leader: Bill Fluke, Columbia Group; Ed Smith, Web Wheel Products, Inc.

The Task Force’s goal is to identify the steps which should be included in an intermodal equipment preventative maintenance program, identify the critical components for an effective preventative maintenance program and the benefits of performing preventative maintenance, and then publish and distribute the summary and recommendations to the industry.
