IANA Launches Processing System for Equipment Reporting

The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) has launched the IANA Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) Processing System. The tool assists motor carriers, intermodal equipment providers (IEPs), facility operators and maintenance and repair vendors with regulatory compliance, as well as the identification of defective equipment. DVIR reporting by motor carriers to IEPs is required beginning June 30, 2010. IANA's new DVIR Processing System supports IEPs that have registered with the Global International Equipment Registry (GIER), and authorized IANA to process equipment condition reports on their behalf. Under the system, IANA may receive equipment information from drivers or motor carriers, collected by multiple methods, including the group's DVIR Web Portal, electronic data interchange, telephone via interactive voice response system (IVR), Extensible Markup Language (XML), Comma Separated Values (CSV) or fixed file format data transfer. IANA has created interfaces between GIER, IANA's Intermodal Driver Database and the Uniform Intermodal Interchange and Facilities Access Agreement database, to provide efficient and secure access to the data required for DVIR completion.
