The FMCSA joins IANA’s Intermodal Chassis Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting Standards Task Force to discuss the role that DVIRs play in improving road-ready intermodal equipment, the consequences of not completing them, examine common misconceptions, and review results of the driver study, video and informational card the task force has developed to improve driver awareness.

ELDs and Intermodal Implementation: What Draymen Need to Know to be Ready
