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.

Jacksonville, Fla.-based Florida East Coast Railway (FECR), a 351-mile freight rail system on the state’s east coast, recently made two separate announcements. One had to do with an expansion of intermodal services between Charlotte, N.C. and various locations in South Florida and another was related to the company boosting its intermodal capacity through the addition of new equipment.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced August 2014 data for global air freight markets showing continued “robust”growth in air cargo volumes.

Company officials said that these planned changes, which will take effect on January 4, 2015, will provide for increases in current pay rates and reduce the time it takes for its nearly 15,000 drivers to reach top pay scale.

While the economy has seen more than its fair share of ups and downs in recent years, 2014 is different in that it could be the best year from an economic output perspective in the last several years.
