DISA Continues to Expand Its Transportation Compliance Division

Blog Q2 Acquisition 1200

DISA is committed to best serving our customers by expanding the scope of our transportation compliance capabilities and adding experienced subject matter experts to complement our growing team.

Over the last eight months, DISA has taken significant steps towards that commitment by reorganizing our support teams, investing in our technology platform, and acquiring six companies (see below) that specialize in transportation compliance solutions.

  • CDTA
  • Compliance Management
  • American Licensing Services
  • ATS Permit Services
  • RMR
  • Random, Inc. (DOT Division)

DISA’s most recent acquisitions were two California based companies, CDTA and American Licensing Services (ALS). These companies allow us to broaden our reach to the West, bolster our service offerings, and provide local support to our valued clients.

DISA’s VP of Product Strategy and Development, Steven Spencer stated, “Our goal in the transportation compliance division is to offer our customers a single source solution for all of their compliance needs.”

John Peterson, CEO added, “DISA is continually driving towards expanding our suite of products and services to ensure the best client experience. With the addition of several subject matter experts and recent acquisitions of companies focused on transportation compliance, DISA is well positioned to provide a comprehensive solution.”

Increased Capabilities

For many years DISA has served clients from all modes of the Department of Transportation (DOT) by providing drug and alcohol testing programs, background check, fleet management, and Driver Qualification (DQ) file management services. While drug testing is at the core of our offerings, more recently we have increased our capabilities by adding a variety of value-add services that a transportation fleet of any size can take advantage of. These services include the following:

  • Fuel Tax Compliance
  • Hours of Service Log Auditing
  • Licensing & Permitting
  • Tax Recovery & Refund Services
