After this hotfix you'll be able to summon chests.
The US Servers will come down on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, at 7:00 am Pacific for a hotfix. The EU Servers will come down on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, at 5:00 am London Time. The expected downtime for both US and EU servers is one hour.
Here is the patch note:
You can now summon a chest to you. Right-click the chest and choose summon or use the /summon_chest command. If you have no chest to target, the /summon_chest command will give you a list of chests that you can summon to you.
