The Truth About DVIRs: The Key to Road Ready Equipment

The Driver Vehicle Inspection Report, or DVIR, submission process is fast and easy and offers a simple way to identify damages at the in-gate so the equipment can be inspected and repaired. It also is a regulatory requirement. Unfortunately, in practice, very few of actual damages are reported by drivers on DVIRs.

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.

Learning objectives:

  • Review results of the DVIR driver study conducted by IANA
  • Discuss the role DVIRs play in improving road ready intermodal equipment
  • Examine common misconceptions about DVIRs
  • Review IANA developed tools to improve driver awareness
  • Discuss how to engage drivers and increase DVIR submission

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

As of December 18th, 2017, all motor carriers will need to be in compliance with FMCSA’s new electronic logging device (ELD) regulations.
