Carrier Qualification & Monitoring
Who's carrying your loads? — You can't afford not knowing.
More and more of our customers are putting new safety requirements into their contracts that we have to sign because of CSA 2010. Safer Watch gives my dispatchers, the decision makers, the instant ability to make a decision of whether or not to trust a particular carrier to handle a load on our behalf. SaferWatch has protected our backside, period!Bruce Gee, VHI Transport
Saferwatch has greatly streamlined our carrier approval process. The direct link to TIA Watchdog, SMS trending information, Fraud Check, and Custom Concerns are all invaluable features. Mike McKinney, AM Transport Services, Inc.
We have saved ourselves from making some bad choices on carriers over the last several months of using Safer watch. Itís very easy to look up a carrier and to see his insurance and authority. The best part is the scam feature so you can check to see if they have tried to set up any other companies. Overall we are very satisfied.Twila Baker, Freight Shakers USA, Inc.
Did you know? You may be held liable for the carriers you hire. Is your validation process reliable?
Catastrophic damages or a lost load...in the Transportation Industry, due diligence is not just a phrase used in fear factor marketing to brokers and shippers, and with good reason. Exercising reasonable care to avoid harm to other persons or their property when putting a load on the road must be a consistent part of the broker and shipper business practice. The success of your business depends on it!
Multiple court cases like Schramm v. Foster in 2004, Puckrein v. BFI, Inc. 2006, or Sperl v. Henry 2009, have proven that brokers and shippers are increasingly being held to this standard of exercising reasonable care when making motor carrier hiring decisions. These and other court cases have also inferred a continuing responsibility of the purchaser of motor carrier services to monitor the competence of the carriers they use.
Industry experts have shared that reasonable proof of due diligence in a carrier hiring decision boils down to being able to justify or defend a decision based on a consistent process for evaluation, drilling down into a carrier's details, regular follow-up and managing by trends.
SaferWatch offers Instant and Reliable Carrier Qualification, Monitoring and Trend Analysis as the best foundation for consistent evaluation. Using SaferWatch insures your business security and peace of mind.
