The Task Force developed the Intermodal Terminal Drayman Safety Handbook, a Recommended Practice to Improve Safety on Intermodal Terminals, for distribution to drayman that serve Intermodal Terminals.
The Task Force has also developed six Recommended Practices to reduce collisions on intermodal terminals. They are detailed on a Safety Pocket Card, suitable to be distributed to the intermodal drayage community.
Both documents were approved by IANA’s Operations Committee in May 2016.
