This study examined CVISN (Commercial Vehicle Information Systems and Networks) and evaluated the impacts of electronic screening, electronic credentialing, and safety information exchange on commercial vehicle operations in "truck shed" states. In 1996, Maryland and Virginia initiated a prototype program designed to develop standards and evaluate baseline conditions. By 1999, five states including Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Kentucky, and Oregon were actively engaged in the CVISN pilot. These programs were analyzed to evaluate the benefits and costs of CVISN prior to national deployment.
