SURE Carrier: 7 Features to Help Protect your Business from Distracted Transportation Contractors

Feb 12, 2018

Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has partnered with the Department of Transportation to prevent driving accidents and create safer roads for transportation employees and the general public, there are still looming safety issues.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 is violated when employers require workers to text while driving or create a job where constant texting is necessary for the position and may put people in danger.

Workers still try to get away with texting and driving despite OSHA violations and local laws; unfortunately, contractors who haul materials for large-scale worksites and companies can ultimately damage business by not following the rules always.

SURE Carrier Simplifies the Process

Are you hiring safe and reliable motor carrier suppliers? Do you review their FMCSA/Department of Transportation compliance rates? Do you monitor this data over time?

Some of this data is available online through the FMCSA, but it’s hard to find, confusing, and time-consuming to track. Plus it only shows you a single carrier at a time and does not compare multiple carriers.

SURE Carrier simplifies the process of evaluating your motor carriers. It provides an improved view of the data, making it easy to track and trend the FMCSA/Department of Transportation safety and performance of motor carriers in your supply chain.

SURE Carrier not only provides you with a detailed view of the performance of your current motor carrier suppliers, it gives you data to validate new contractors based on trending performance data. This enables you to efficiently manage the motor carriers in your supply chain.

SURE Carrier is available as an add-on to SURE Qualify, which assesses suppliers on many other performance and risk indicators such as safety, insurance coverage, financial stability, and more.
