Tucker Consulting Inc. has launched QualifiedCarriers.com, an online service which provides shippers and logistics providers with tools to help manage risk while improving safety and security in the use of motor carriers. According to the company, the new service helps subscribers to reduce risk caused by carrier service failures, cargo loss and damage, and legal liability. They can track U.S. Department of Transportation safety data on a real-time basis, monitor trends, customize reports and view carriers that are improving, declining or maintaining performance on meeting government measures for compliance and safety. A document-management feature allows users to view, download and print critical carrier documents such as insurance certificates, hazardous materials permits and contracts. They can distribute to carriers key documents and messages such as security and loss prevention bulletins, freight-handling procedures, product-line standards of care and emergency notifications. Tucker's network of professional audit inspectors can provide on-site verification of carrier performance in complying with procedures, expectations, industry best practices and applicable laws and regulations.
