The OCEMA argued in its motion that the IMCC failed to highlight any specific contracts where this is the case and did not show how motor carriers are forced into accepting the overcharging from the chassis providers.
"Again, these are conclusions rather than factual allegations and are not entitled to an assumption of truth," the motion reads.
The IMCC filed the complaint in August, arguing that chassis providers and ocean carriers have limited chassis choice across the country, which results in motor carriers getting overcharged, compared to the rates given to ocean carriers.
Ocean carriers owned 51% of chassis in 2009, but that shrank to 17% by 2013. Ocean carriers don't own any of the chassis in the U.S. today, but have handed over the responsibility to leasing companies or intermodal equipment providers, according to IMCC's original complaint.
