A safe, smooth-running operation keeps your trucks rolling and your bottom line growing. That’s why violations, accidents and the related liability are some of the biggest risks your fleet faces. And it takes more than a quick fix to properly protect your fleet. So we developed the industry’s most comprehensive, in-depth DOT safety and compliance programs.
Our unique, subscription-based model delivers ongoing support from an expert transportation consultant working directly with you to assess your risk, develop a customized plan to mitigate that risk, then provide the insights and resources to deliver the results you need. In fact, after working with us over time our clients have achieved an average 47% improvement in their CSA scores! And by having these services and resources bundled into one program, you benefit from a predictable monthly investment that’s a significant savings over purchasing them individually.
