Notice to all draymen regarding FMCSA
DCLI is currently reviewing the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) status for operating authority of motor carriers signatory to DCLI's interchange contract. If a company does not have a current valid operating authority, that company will be disqualified from interchanging DCLI equipment until such time as valid operating authority is restored by the FMCSA . We encourage all trucking companies to log into www.safersys.org to verify if your authority & insurance are current and valid, this will help ensure no issues with interchanging DCLI chassis.
Important Notice regarding DVER:
Federal Law requires motor carriers to report the results of roadside inspections to the IEP. A copy of the DVER received must be tendered to the IEP in order to inform it of any defects that were cited so that the IEP may record the DVER and any roadside repairs made, or to inform the IEP of repairs that must be done and signed off on so that the completed DVER may be returned to the enforcement agency.
DVER's may be returned to any DCLI Maintenance manager, supervisor or facility. If it cannot be returned to the facility, a copy can be sent scanned and emailed to:
This must be done within 24 hours of receiving the DVER.
49 CFR 369.9 (d)(1) The driver of any motor vehicle, including a motor vehicle transporting intermodal equipment, who receives an inspection report shall deliver a copy to both the motor carrier operating the vehicle and the intermodal equipment provider upon his/her arrival at the next terminal or facility. If the driver is not scheduled to arrive at a terminal or facility of the motor carrier operating the vehicle or at a facility of the intermodal equipment provider within 24 hours, the driver shall immediately mail, fax, or otherwise transmit the report to the motor carrier and intermodal equipment provider.
DCLI subscribes to the GIER. DOT # does not have to be affixed to the chassis, law enforcement can access the information online or by phone from the GIER.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) issued a bulletin on Jan. 14, 2011, to enforcement personnel providing guidelines for use of GIER as the 5th marking option. Please click on the below link to see more on this bulletin.
