Intermodal Index Requirements

Crowley will be utilizing the CASS index to monitor costs and adjust inland rates in Tariffs and Contracts. The index can be found here: CASS Index

Please note Crowley will be updating this page quarterly as of January, 2020.

Crowley will review the quarterly average index values for Truckload Linehaul. If the index increases or decreases by more than 2% from the baseline amounts, we will announce the change and adjust the inland component of tariff and contract rates by an equal amount 30 days later. If there is less than a 2% change then there will be no adjustment and the Current Baseline will remain unchanged. If there is an adjustment then the Current Baseline will be updated to reflect the new baseline.
