USTRANSPORT is a leader in transportation safety. Our current ISS score is 39 and continues to trend downward indicating best in class safety performance.
USTRANSPORT’s safe on road performance is directly reflected in our CSA scores. The CSA program of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) holds motor carriers and drivers accountable for their role in safety. We continuously strive to improve our safety performance to eliminate crashes and unsafe behavior. We closely monitor our scores to continuously improve our safety program and maintain excellence in compliance with state and federal enforcement agencies.
CSA affects motor carriers, including owner-operators, by identifying those with safety problems to prioritize them for interventions such as warning letters and investigations. CSA affects drivers because their safety performance and compliance impact their safety records and, while working for a carrier, will impact their carrier’s safety record.
