TMC adds licensees for Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards

The ATA's Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) announced Tuesday it has added to the number of industry licensees for the latest version of Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards. The announcement was made at TMC's Fall Meeting in Cleveland.

“By adding to the number of industry partners using VMRS 2.0, we can provide better, information to carriers and service providers faster,” says TMC Executive Director Robert Braswell. “I want to thank all of our industry partners for working with us on this important effort.”

TMC says Daimler Trucks North America has been an established supporter and user of VMRS and continues to be involved with TMC in the creation and adoption of new VMRS codes. TMC says it looks forward to a continued working relationship with Daimler, as well as all of its VMRS licensees, and appreciates their licensing VMRS Version 2.0.

“I feel joining the ATA TMC will be a tremendous resource for improving our fleet maintenance operations. Additionally, the VMRS codes will be key in organizing internal processes and give us flexibility to absorb data into our maintenance system from third parties for better reporting and documentation,” says Pete Anderson, director of technology/fleet coordinator at Ranger Excavating.

TMC has expanded the VMRS licensing to now include four different license types that include Electronic Catalog, Corporate Complete, Corporate Developer and Corporate Distribution. The organization says the new licensing will broaden the scope of VMRS and introduce VMRS to a new group of users working in the transportation maintenance industry.

The newest offering — VMRS - Electronic Catalog license — is designed for use by parts manufacturers, distributors and suppliers that want to code their parts or inventories, TMC says. The license includes access to more than 34,000 Component Codes listed in Code Key 33 and to more than 11,000 Manufacturer/Supplier Brand Codes listed in Code Key 34.
