Need DOT Compliance for Short-Haul?

Our team of DOT Compliance Specialists will manage and monitor your:

  • Drug and alcohol testing requirements
  • Driver Qualification Files
  • Licensing requirements
  • and more

We ensure that your company is following all of the rules and regulations set by the FMCSA with a long-term goal of:

  • Lowering insurance premiums, and
  • Lowering your CSA scores.

Managing and understanding all of the FMCSA regulations and requirements on your own is overwhelming and missing any little detail can lead to audits, fines and other negative consequences.

What is Proactive Safety Management (PSM)?

Proactive Safety Management or PSM is the basis of our business and is somewhat of a motto here at CNS. PSM is an internal term we created meaning you and your company are working hard to be safe and compliant and stay ahead of the FMCSA.

All DOT Compliance Programs were built with Proactive Safety in mind.

The PSM Short-Haul/Construction Program, and all DOT Compliance Programs, are built with a proactive mindset to ensure your safety and compliance is in order. We keep you ahead of the FMCSA and provide peace of mind that there is a team that knows all of the complicated processes to stay FMCSA compliant.

CNS is always on top of everything and they always have the answers we need to keep us compliant and worry free.

company goals
We set goals specific to your company.

We understand not all companies are built and operated the same, which is why the goals we set are focused on your needs and where your company needs improvement.

CSA Scores are the primary means in which the FMCSA identifies high-risk motor carriers. Therefore, as a trucking company, lowering your CSA scores is one of the most beneficial things you can do.

Your trucking insurance premiums can be effected by many things, including cargo, driver record, location, operating radius and much more. Our PSM Motor Carrier Program is built around saving you money by lowering your commercial truck insurance premiums.

DOT audits will happen to every trucking company, which is why we represent you and also prepare you with Mock DOT Audits.

DOT rules and regulations dictate that you must keep your Driver Qualification Files (DQFs) up-to-date or your company will not be DOT Compliant. Being part of our PSM Motor Carrier Program relieves you from the tedious process of managing and maintaining DQFs.

Safety Audit Readiness

Audit preparation is managed for you. We organize documents and correspond with officers and even perform Mock DOT Audits to analyze where your company stands from a compliance perspective.

Driver Training

Our DOT trainers offer a variety of in-person, or online training courses for the specific needs or weaknesses of your company. Driver training and education is a very valuable resource to ensure a healthy fleet, and compliant safety practices.

Get your compliance in order

Our compliance specialists make it simple for you and your company to stay in service, avoiding audits and fines that can range from $5,000 up to $75,000.
