Is an intermodal equipment provider (IEP) required to perform inspection, repair, and maintenance itself, or may it contract with others?

An intermodal equipment provider (IEP) may enter into agreements with others (“designated agents”) to perform inspection, repair, and maintenance on its behalf. The IEP, however, is responsible for the work performed by its agents and for ensuring the safety of the intermodal equipment (IME) it tenders to motor carriers and drivers.
