Ben Metzler

I worked with Rachel Davis at CNS. She was awesome!! Very easy to work with and made the process smooth. We had recently completed an audit and needed to get an upgrade. Rachel helped us the whole way thru and helped us avoid getting unsatisfactory rating and helped get fines reduced. I would recommend CNS to anyone with issues involving FMCSA or who want to insure they are in compliance.

Georgi Georgiev

Great company to work with! They really walk along side you and answer all your questions.

LouAnn Showalter

Worked with Danialle (and Jared) on getting our company switched over to Pedigree for our ELD and compliance needs. Being new to the Pedigree system, Danialle walked us through it step by step and got us set up with a trial unit and checked in along the way to see if we had any questions. During a small technical glitch we encountered, she was responsive and got the issue resolved very quickly! We are now switching over our entire fleet to Pedigree tablets, and look forward to working with Danialle and the CNS team in the future!

Colin Zimmerman

The team at cns worked hand in hand with my company to help us successfully complete a DOT compliance safety audit !!! Especially Rob and Chris they represented my company as if it was their own! They both were completely reachable at all times during the audit process.even with the current COVID shutdown they took the extra time too make sure everything was in order prior to rushing through since they had already been paid! We decided to use them as our drug and alcohol consortium moving forward. As a 20 plus year small fleet owner i would recommend using their services if and when a FMSCA issue arises.

Patrick Conaway

Fantastic group of people to work with. I used them for my CDL permit prep class and CDL training course. Jolyn went over and above to help me out with preparation and offer insight on how the actual test is conducted.
