Most countries have multiple custodians of vehicle information, each maintaining separate vehicle records. For example, customs authorities have databases of imported and exported vehicles, insurance companies keep details of insured vehicles using a different platform, manufacturers maintain details of vehicles manufactured, licensing authorities keep details of vehicle plate numbers while other stakeholders keep different vehicle related transactional details.
