Vigillo announced Carrier Select has been redesigned and will continue to provide CSA scores that Vigillo’s carrier customers and the entire industry can opt-in to share. Carrier Select, which provides real-time data for analyzing motor carrier performance and making more informed choices, has moved from a downloadable application to a web-based application.
“As a means of performing the due diligence required to defend against negligent hire lawsuits, we introduced Carrier Select four years ago so freight brokers, shippers and insurers can readily access the safety rating, operating authority, insurance and CSA scores of their motor carrier partners,” said Steven G. Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “With the blocking of CSA BASIC scores from public view under newly enacted legislation, combined with the lack of hiring standards, that due diligence becomes much more difficult and much more critical. As a more user-friendly, mobile enabled, web-based application, Carrier Select will become an even more valuable tool for our subscribers as they address that increasing need.”
Vigillo said it maintains the largest database of Carrier CSA scores outside of the FMCSA. The Carrier Select no cost-opt-in model is available to any motor carrier to share now-private CSA scores, along with Vigillo’s new JUST parallel scoring system, with their business partners as they see fit.
“Having never relied on publicly available CSA data,” Bryan added. “Vigillo is uniquely positioned to fill the void left by the removal of public CSA scores. The day CSA is turned off from public view, Carrier Select turns on, and the communication of critical safety data between motor carriers and brokers and shippers continues without interruption.”
