Massachusetts Oil Spill Response Trailer Tracking System

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection contracted Nuka Research to develop a web-based system to document inspections of over 90 trailers containing oil spill equipment throughout Massachusetts.  With this system, inspectors can directly enter information into this Trailer Tracking System (TTS) during the inspection, saving a significant amount of time and effort over the previous system, which consisted of scanning paper-based forms.  In addition to equipment inventories, the TTS also tracks the condition of each trailer.  The up-to-date information in the TTS is available to anyone who is authorized access so that MassDEP and its contractors can track trailer maintenance, equipment resupply and use and will also play a key role in making informed decisions regarding the recapitalization of the fleet of trailers currently in use.
