Trusted Vendor Program


TVP LogoThe Trusted Vendor Program (TVP) recognizes select vendors with a proven track record and training to make off-hour deliveries. TVP serves as a reference for receivers interested in implementing OHD in their operations. Businesses receive information about ‘trusted’ shippers, carriers and vendors that have proven that they can make deliveries successfully and safely. Ultimately, TVP further supports the adaptation of OHD as it mitigates concerns of possible risks of late night and unattended deliveries.




TVP was developed by the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and is sponsored by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), NYSDOT and NYC DOT. The Grand Central Partnership and the Trucking Association of New York are also supporters of the program.
