How Transportation Document Scanning Works

1. Prepare your documents to be scanned by placing documents and files into labeled boxes to be transported for scanning.

2. Contact Record Nations at (866) 385-3706 or fill out the form to receive free quotes from providers in your area. Choose the provider that best fits your needs and budget.

3. The scanner takes the records and transports them securely to a facility to begin the conversion process. However, if you need to conduct the process on-site, they instead take their scanners to your location.

4. Experts then scan and convert your documents to a digital format, ensuring accuracy every step of the way.

5. Records are converted into desired formats and stored on a document management system of your choosing.

6. Physical files are either returned to the office or are sent to an offsite storage unit until the retention period expires.

How Record Nations Helps You Keep Up With Your Competition

Compliance Requirements


The transportation industry is subject to various regulatory requirements, such as the FMCSSA, including those related to safety, security, and customs. Our service providers help ensure compliance by securely storing and organizing essential documents such as permits, licenses, and safety certificates.

Efficient Operations


Transportation companies deal with vast amounts of paperwork, including invoices, bills of lading, manifests, and shipping documents. Document scanning and storage streamline operations by digitizing these documents, making them easily searchable and accessible to employees, reducing the time and effort required for manual filing and retrieval.

Remote Access


With the increasing trend toward distributed teams, digital document storage enables employees to access important documents from anywhere, at any time. This flexibility enhances collaboration, decision-making, and responsiveness, even when team members are working from different locations.

Space and Cost Savings


Traditional paper-based document storage requires significant physical space and resources. By digitizing documents and storing them electronically, your transportation company can free up valuable office space, reduce printing and storage costs, and minimize the environmental impact associated with paper consumption.

Enhanced Security

Digital document storage offers advanced security features such as encryption, access controls, and audit trails, protecting sensitive information from unauthorized access, loss, or theft. This level of security is essential for safeguarding customer data, financial records, and proprietary information.
