Creditsafe Launches Federal Motor Carrier Safety Data for the Transportation Industry
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (June 9, 2015) – Creditsafe has now integrated…
Gives companies immediate online access to credit and safety reports on tens of thousands of U.S. motor carriers
Creditsafe has now integrated Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) data into its credit reports. FMCSA is the agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) responsible for monitoring and developing safety standards for commercial motor vehicles operating in interstate and intrastate commerce. Creditsafe – the world’s most-used supplier of business credit reports – is one of a few select providers authorized by FMCSA to collect and report this government-sourced data.
Companies that do business with transportation carriers and shippers can now get important safety and credit information from Creditsafe on any motor carrier in the U.S. required to hold a registered Motor Carrier Number with the FMCSA. The data available through Creditsafe includes fleet sizes, safety ratings, types of goods transported and solvency information.
“The addition of motor carrier safety data to our credit reports makes the vetting process more efficient and thorough for our transportation customers, while helping them reduce the costs associated with collecting this data from other external sources,” said Matthew Debbage, President of Creditsafe’s U.S. operations. “Access to this information is critical for companies that do business with any domestic motor carrier.”
The Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) is a computerized system that the FMCSA maintains. It compiles a comprehensive record of the safety performance of the motor carriers (truck and bus) and hazardous materials shippers who are subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) or the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). All U.S. companies that operate as for-hire carriers, transport passengers in interstate commerce or transport federally-regulated commodities are required to have a Motor Carrier Number.
Founded in Norway in 1997, Creditsafe, Inc. is the world’s most-used supplier of online company credit reports. Nearly 5,000 companies in the U.S. use its credit reports, ranging from small businesses to large, global concerns like Staples, Ryder and Nestle. Its U.S. operations are headquartered in Allentown, Pa.
