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.
