Our SaaS product is mobile device and Web-based, and includes tools for documenting maintenance and repair estimates, gate interchanges, and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs).


The Estimate application allows for the inspection of trailing equipment (Chassis, Container and Trailer) for documentation of defects and repair estimates. The application includes estimate mobile print and/or email. Also includes FMCSA, M&R Vendor Audit and Take-off Tire Inspection functionality.

Gate Interchange

The Gate Interchange application is used for gate interchange / inspection of trailing equipment, also suitable for cross border facilities. Includes systematic pairing of round trip inspections, capture of detailed interchange and defect data and quick on-screen diagram markup for dents, scratches and repaired cuts.


The DVIR application allows for turn key documentation of Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports for transportation equipment including tractors, straight trucks and pick-up trucks, which are captured on smart phones. Includes on-screen vehicle diagram markup.

Staffing Solutions

Caliber provides staffing for M&R field services and back office support, which can be bundled with Caliber Saas Solutions for vendor management and cost control.

Field Services

Caliber provides field personnel to perform pre and post-inspection of trailing equipment, pre-approval of repairs and estimates. They can also perform M&R vendor repair audits.

Back Office

Caliber provides back office personnel to perform estimate and invoice review services, subrogation preparation, as well as data analysis and reporting.

About Us


Caliber was founded in January, 2006 as a spin off of McGriff Tire Management Services division. Caliber's initial product offering was management programs for trailing equipment ( chassis, container and trailer). Over time, Caliber has developed proprietary software, known as Spection™. Spection is offered to Caliber customers today as Software as a Sevice for use with their own staff, or bundled with field and back office personnel provided by Caliber. Spection includes mobile device and Web-based inspection applications, including maintenance and repair estimates, gate interchange, and DVIRs, all with integrated photo documentation.

Caliber focuses on the Intermodal and trucking sectors of the Transportation Industry, specializing in equipment readiness technology and personnel support services. Our core strength is using our intermodal experience to develop services that meet our customer’s equipment management, cost control and regulatory compliance objectives. Our software applications are continuously enhanced to meet our customer’s changing business requirements.


6/15/2020 – Caliber Relocates Main Office

Lansdale, PA, Monday, June 15, 2020  – Caliber Information Systems has relocated its main office to Lansdale, PA from its previous offices in North Wales, PA, which it had occupied for over ten years. More specifically, the new offices are adjacent to Merck’s West Point facility in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

Caliber Information Systems provides Staffing and Software Services at rail, depot, port, and cross border facilities nationwide. Under its bundled service, Caliber positions qualified inspector personnel to document the condition of customer-owned chassis, container and trailer equipment using Caliber’s mobile inspection technology, known as Spection™. Bruce Childers, CEO of Caliber, said "Our bundled services assist our customers in controlling maintenance & repair costs through pre-repair authorization and subrogation backup documentation."

Spection is a Web-based and mobile device application that is built for use on either retail or ruggedized iOS and Android hardware. Spection is used for the inspection, estimation and pre and post-approval of equipment repairs. John Gunder, President of Caliber, said “Our clients can purchase Spection as ‘Software as a Service’ for use by their own field staff, or Caliber can bundle Spection with Caliber trained inspectors. Some clients actually utilize both our SaaS and bundled services, which is the case with Direct ChassisLink, Schneider, and other equipment owners and maintenance & repair companies.”

Caliber Information Systems is a privately held company, with offices in Lansdale, PA. For more information on Caliber's services please visit their website at, or email John Gunder at
