Monitoring CSA BASICs with EOBRs: Are you protecting your score?November 11, 2011
Today, an estimated 59,000 trucking companies are under a CSA alert status. And now that CSA scores are publicly available, those fleets may find it more difficult to operate in this tight economy.
• The FMCSA and its state partners monitor inspection and violation data, intervene with at-risk carriers and close those that do not take appropriate actions to improve their safety record
• Shippers minimize liability exposure for accidents by contracting with carriers that present solid CSA scores
• Insurance companies review CSA scores as part of their underwriting process, as well as consider scores when evaluating a carrier’s premiums
In short, a poor CSA score can result in far more than an intervention letter—it can impact your bottom line.
Electronic onboard recorder (EOBR) solutions, like Xata Turnpike can provide trucking companies the robust data analytics they need to catch potential violations before they happen, allowing fleet and safety managers to proactively address BASICs and, ultimately, protecting their CSA scores.
