Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)

The Federal government through the U.S. Department of Transportation has instituted a safety compliance reporting system. This system provides safety information for every carrier operating in the country. This system allows the general public access to seven safety areas for each carrier.

We encourage everyone to visit the website and review their current or potential carriers. The website is http://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov/SMS/Default.aspx. You can obtain a carriers safety information by entering their USDOT or MC Number. PDDS Transportation and Warehousing’s USDOT number is 2639375.

The system is designed to monitor critical safety areas and assure that carriers are operating safely on our highways.

Pathfinder Dray & Dedicated Services and Warehousing is proud of our safety record. We currently have customers that require us to send a safety report quarterly to assure that we are maintaining our fleet and safe operations.

The effect of this program on the transportation industry will be substantial. We expect that carriers with poor safety records will eventually disappear. Customers are using this program to reduce their own liability exposure. Truck accidents can be dramatic and very costly. If a claim exceeds a carrier’s liability insurance, the claimant may look to the shipper for restitution.avana lenox reviews
