CarrierWatch® CSA Industry Report


February 10, 2011

In December 2010, the FMCSA released the initial data on all commercial fleets affected by Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010, or CSA 2010 as it was then known. Subsequently renamed the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program, it will have far-reaching effects on the ways brokers, 3PLs, and shippers buy carriers’ services, as well as, the ways carriers sell them. This CarrierWatch® CSA Industry Report focuses on the approximately 166,000 for-hire interstate carriers evaluated under the new program.

The new Compliance Safety Accountability (CSA) safety program – introduced by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) nationwide in December– has added a new level of complexity to carrier safety evaluations. SafeStat, CSA’s predecessor, relied on out-of-service violations for the bulk of its data, but CSA adds data from roadside inspections.

Following the lead of its Congressional Colleagues in the House of Representatives, the United States Senate yesterday approved a measure geared to keep federal surface transportation funding intact through the end of December with a nearly $11 billion stopgap fix.

XPO Logistics announced second quarter earnings and the acquisition of two companies, New Breed Logistics, a non asset-based 3PL focusing in contract logistics services, for roughly $615 million, and Atlantic Central Logistics, a 3PL provider of last-mile logistics services, for roughly $36.5 million.

The report, entitled “Outlook for the Domestic Transport and Logistics Market in 2H14 and Beyond,” takes the view that strong freight levels in the second quarter have left trucking companies in a good position: one in which they need to come up with new plans to handle rising demand. But even with that positive momentum afloat, the report observes that there are some familiar challenges intact, such as a lack of qualified drivers and the regulatory drag from the new hours-of-service rules that took effect in July 2013.

Flags of Convenience are a fact of life in the commercial maritime trade, but several European political action groups are worried that they will pose a threat to the Continent’s air cargo industry.
