Rair has added two new enhancements to its CSA solution: Anew report that links CSA data to audited Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs) and a new type of “reporting environment” designed to offer greater control to the user.
The new DVIR report compares data from DVIRs with CSA Vehicle Maintenance BASIC data to help carriers identify and counsel drivers who routinely perform inadequate vehicle inspections. The report indicates whether the cause of a vehicle-related CSA violation was noted on the DVIR for the day of the inspection or the day prior to the inspection.
The report was designed to help reduce the number of inspections, violations, points and roadside repairs, and to help increase the number of on-time deliveries. "According to our most recent analysis of CSA violations data, the Vehicle Maintenance BASIC accounts for 65% of all CSA violations," said Gregory Lofy, Rair president & CEO. "Fortunately, this is one of the BASICs that carriers can improve by counseling drivers to perform more careful vehicle inspections."
RAIR also announced what it terms “a more fluid reporting environment” that is designed to allow carriers to control the amount of data and the number of details used when building reports. Features include the ability to drag and drop columns, sort within columns and filter data within columns (for example, displaying only drivers with ten or more violations). Users can filter the same data set up to three times.
