International Border Crossing Electronic Screening Field Operational Test

This study was to design and develop performance specifications and test and evaluate an IBC e-Screening system that would: Electronically identify the carrier, truck, trailer, and driver associated with commercial trucks entering the United States at land ports using radio frequency identification transponders (already installed on 90 percent of the trucks entering the United States from Mexico and Canada). Electronically screen each trip component for factors of interest to State and FMCSA inspectors, providing for full safety and compliance verification of carriers, trucks, trailers, and drivers, each time they enter the United States. Display the screening results to State and FMCSA enforcement officers and inspectors to assist them in making more informed inspection selection decisions in fixed and mobile operations, as well as mainline and ramp settings (thus significantly increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations). Enable data monitoring/reporting by States and FMCSA to better position each organization to fulfill its mission.
