This publication is designed to address the need for a common classification system, which will allow public and private agencies to identify the significant characteristics of their motor vehicles and equipment fleets.
The code facilitates interagency comparisons of data and provides the primary means of identifying similar pieces of equipment, as well as facilitating efficient collection, processing, and analysis of data concerning those units. Use of the equipment code to develop outcome-oriented performance management systems is encouraged.
The modular ten-digit alphanumeric system allows you to identify particular characteristics of vehicles, include additional types of equipment, accommodate future vehicle and equipment industry development, and improve data handling and analysis capabilities.
APWA's equipment code is a must-have for every public or private fleet or equipment manager!
