Carrier opt-in web-based application keeps CSA scores visible
Portland, Oregon– December 07, 2015— Vigillo LLC, creators of the transportation industry’s most advanced big data and data mining software products, today announced that Carrier Select™, a carrier selection tool for freight brokers, shippers and insurance providers, has been completely 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 dynamic, easy-to-use, 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 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 easily share now-private CSA scores, along with Vigillo’s new JUST parallel scoring system, with their critical business partners as they see fit. All of this is made possible by the years of work Vigillo has put into both the relationship it has with thousands of motor carriers and the power of the Athena Big Data platform that can now be immediately deployed.
“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.”
