EXCHANGE OF DATA BETWEEN SHIPPERS AND CARRIERS OF ALL MODES

The Transportation Data Coordinating Committee (TDCC) was created to achieve the use of uniform data codes, formats, and documentation for the distribution process. Six TDCC industry/government task force have concentrated on the stabilization of specific data areas that require uniform coding if computer information interchange is to be accomplished. These are: 1) commodity coding; 2) geographic coding; 3) patron (TDCC is in negotiations with Dun & Bradstreet for the issuance and maintenance of a special transportation file of patrons); 4) Tariff Task Force; 5) Carrier Task Force; and 6) advanced concepts.
