At this week's annual Transportation Intermediaries Association conference, TransCore is previewing CarrierWatch 2010, an enhanced version of its carrier monitoring service, which will feature carrier safety scores and other metrics from the Comprehensive Safety Analysis (CSA 2010). CarrierWatch 2010 is scheduled for general availability in June, well in advance of the gradual replacement of the FMCSA's previous safety metrics and programs, including SAFER and SAFESTAT.
The new CSA 2010 metrics in TransCore's CarrierWatch 2010 will help freight brokers, third-party logistics providers and shippers to select motor carriers whose safety records comply with the most current federal standards. Brokers and 3PLs are invited to download a white paper entitled CSA 2010: Seven Things Every Broker Should Know.
TransCore's CarrierWatch 2010 also features enhanced fraud protection, to combat the growing problem with double-brokering of loads by companies operating under various aliases yet using the same physical address and phone numbers. CarrierWatch includes an insurance e-certificate service, which lets users view online and print copies of carriers' certificates of insurance, and automatically time-stamps all page views or downloads as a proof of due diligence.
