Promoting Intermodal

IANA provides the industry with value added information services that facilitate business processes and efficiencies promoting intermodal growth and productivity.

UIIA Participation

The UIIA is the only standard industry contract that outlines the rules for the interchange of equipment between intermodal trucking companies and equipment providers (ocean carriers, railroads & equipment leasing companies). Participation in the UIIA increases operational efficiencies and eliminates the need to manage multiple interchange contracts and insurance filings.

From Participants

Real quotes from past events.

"The UIIA has allowed Eagle Systems to interchange with many different equipment providers under one contract. The management time saved by not having to negotiate numerous interchange documents is priceless."
Jeff Lang

"Using the UIIA program has provided a tremendous benefit to XPO Intermodal divisions as key information is disseminated to the correct individuals within our organization in a timely manner. The IDD feed to the railroads' system has also been hugely successful in aiding our contractor's ability to interchange equipment."
