The UIIA requires a driver who uses intermodal equipment to defend, hold harmless and retain the equipment supplier for any liability or damage suffered during the replacement period, including due to the personal negligence of the device supplier. See UIIA, §F.4.  Therefore, drivers should be aware that they may be held liable for damage or compensation to the OEM, even if the OEM itself has been negligent. The UIIA is used by 95% of the top 100 shipping companies and by all major railways. Thus, participation in the UIIA allows and facilitates road transport companies to do business with rail and marine carriers. The UIIA also makes unnecessary the need for drivers to conclude separate exchange contracts with individual equipment suppliers. It also reduces the number of insurance certificates to be submitted. the Intermodal Access and Access Agreement managed by the Intermodal Association of North America, as amended by the Intermodal Interchange Executive Committee; or B. Other agreements providing for the replacement, use or possession of chassis, containers or other intermodal equipment. Mrs. . . .
