If you don’t know the CSA score of the carrier you work for or a perspective carrier you’re considering working for, you should. Why? Because your carrier’s score has a direct impact on you.
Trucking companies with BASIC scores above the threshold are subject to more roadside inspections, causing you delays and frustration.
Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to check your carrier or perspective carriers’ CSA score:
Step 1: Follow this link.
On the top, right hand side, you’ll see this box. Enter your carriers or your perspective carrier’s DOT #.
Step 2: Once you’ve entered the company’s DOT #, you will be directed to the company’s FMCSA page.
Step 3: Scroll down the page to the company’s BASIC information. Click on each category for more detailed information. (Do this for 7 categories).
For example: If you click on “Unsafe Driving,” you will be taken to another page that will detail that specific rating. The page will show a gage. The lower the number, the better the rating.
Also look for “Overall BASIC Status” under each of the categories. This will be located at the top of the screen.
Step 4: Look at the “Summary of Activity”
This section illustrates the total number of incidents, including inspections, crashes (including injuries and fatalities) and tow-aways. Again, the lower the number, the better.
