USIS' DAC Services Has Provided Solutions to Trucking Industry for 25 Years

TULSA, OK -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 30, 2006 -- "We are celebrating 25 years within the transportation market," said Tim Dowd, president of USIS's commercial services business. "That is a milestone for the entire screening industry, and we are proud that DAC Services -- which represented a revolutionary way of doing business when it started 25 years ago -- has been able to help the transportation industry with comprehensive driver information and screening services."

DAC (Drive-A-Check) Services has provided innovative screening solutions to the transportation industry since 1981. During this time, DAC has evolved from a business that began by supplying motor carriers with motor vehicle reports (MVRs) as a sole means by which to screen drivers, to the industry's premier source for comprehensive driver information and screening services.

In 1986, DAC revolutionized the driver screening process by launching its Employment History File, a proprietary driver information repository which allows motor carriers to exchange employee work history information. Today, the database contains over 5.9 million records from more than 2,500 motor carriers, and remains a unique product in the transportation industry.

Other highlights in the DAC Services history include:

--  1988 - To help employers comply with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Act
    of 1986, DAC Services developed the multiple license pointer file.
--  1989 - STA (State Trucking Associations) United formed to provide drug
    and alcohol testing to meet the new Department of Transportation
--  1994 - DAC Services provided exclusive access to the Commercial
    Driver's License Information System (CDLIS).
--  2000 - DAC Services and STA United merged, offering the trucking
    industry a single source for complete compliance and screening services.
--  2002 - DAC Services opened its District of Columbia office to better
    leverage influence on legislative regulatory decisions impacting the
    transportation industry. Also in 2002, USIS, a company with more than 50
    years of background screening experience, purchased DAC Services.
