Internet Truckstop has launched a new carrier registration service, CRS and CRS Plus, both designed to streamline the carrier on boarding process. The service is available on the company’s www.truckstop.com freight matching site.
“With the transportation industry struggling to find capacity to meet freight demands, Internet Truckstop is the only load board that offers its carrier members easy access to companies that match their ‘paperwork approved’ carriers requirements,” said Scott Moscrip, president.
To utilize the service, a company provides information on the type of carrier it wishes to do business with – information such as length of time in business, type of equipment, or even carrier performance rating. The company logo directs a carrier to the company’s broker/carrier agreement. A carrier reads and signs the agreement and with a simple click the paperwork approval process on the carrier begins. CRS delivers to the company a complete carrier file including the contract, W-9, insurance certificates and more.
CRS and CRS Plus were developed in collaboration with Registry Monitoring Insurance Services (RMIS).
“CRS Plus creates a personalized carrier registration website that can accommodate a company with four pages of contract documents or 44 pages of contract documents all needing to be signed,” said Hayden Landon, president, RMIS. “Our customers tell us that the carriers that use the site instead of faxing or scanning and e-mailing the documents can get their entire registration done in less than 10 minutes.”
According to Landon, the average company sees a drop in carrier registration time from 90 minutes per carrier to about 10 minutes.
The RMIS database includes over 100,000 certificates of insurance and over 500,000 carriers from the DOT database. All information (both data and images) is available through the website or by integration with existing in-house software system, the company said.
Monitoring of carriers is done on a daily basis.
