In preparation for a CSA panel at the upcoming NPTC Safety Meeting, I ran some CSA comparisons of private fleets vs the industry as a whole. Very interesting. It appears that private fleets measure up pretty well when compared to the industry of all carriers (private and for-hire).
Private fleets are, on average, lower in all 7 BASICs, are significantly less likely to be the subject of an intervention, have far fewer inspections that are driver controllable, and interestingly, have considerably less trouble with log violations (the new grand-daddy of CSA).
I’ve included a few slides below, have a look, and I’ll see you in DC in a couple weeks
