Managed Mobile offers comprehensive service for commercial trailer inspections to help businesses stay compliant with BIT and DOT regulatory requirements. For instance, the Basic Inspection of Terminals (BIT) Program requires that all commercial trucks and trailers operating in California that have a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,001 pounds or greater, must undergo a bumper to bumper safety inspection every 90 days. Similarly, any commercial truck or trailer operating intrastate in the U.S. that weighs more than 10,000 pounds or carries hazardous materials, regardless of weight, is required to have annual federal inspections as outlined by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
BIT and DOT Safety Inspections are clearly defined. The “bumper to bumper trailer safety inspection” includes all major system components on a trailer, including:
King Pin / Coupling Devices
Wheels, Hubs, Axles
Brake Components and Braking System
Frame and Support
Lighting and Electrical
Tire Condition and Inflation
