The damage claim filing and recovery process for carriers that service OEMs are similar, but variations exist. This forces manufacturers and transportation carriers into subjective analysis and a labor intensive review process.
The Damage Claims work group creates global filing procedures for reporting vehicle damage during the transportation process. Thus far, the work group has published a five-digit code guideline that defines the damage area, type and severity. Current initiatives include a Key and Key Fob placement policy, a complete inspection and verification process, and AAR/MVMA codes update (now referred to as the M-22: Finished Vehicle Transportation Damage Standards and Guide).
