This report documents findings from a series of studies investigating how Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) could be used to improve the integration of commercial vehicle operations (CVO) with governmental services and regulations within intermodal transportation management centers. After a summary of prior project research, the report gives a review of ITS/CVO technologies. This is followed by results of interviews and focus groups that reveal that trucking companies are willing to invest and participate in projects that possess four basic characteristics: 1) modest investment, 2) no new taxes or user fees, 3) promotes operating eficiency, customer service or safety, and 4) voluntary.
