I am a PRIVATE FLEET owner.
What does CSA mean to me?

Private Fleet Owners As the owner of a private fleet, CSA means new responsibilities and new concerns for your fleet. Any private fleet or carrier - large or small, with one truck or 100-plus - that operates vehicles over 10,000 pounds and runs interstate routes (or hazardous materials intrastate) is subject to CSA scrutiny.

Your CSA Score: What is it? What does it mean?

The CSA scores for your private fleet, for carriers, and for owner-operators are updated monthly. The FMCSA calculates scores based on results of inspections, violations and crash data from drivers, as well as how recently the issues took place. FMCSA calculates scores for each of the seven BASICs: Unsafe Driving, Hours of Service (HOS), Driver Fitness, Controlled Substances/Alcohol, Vehicle Maintenance, Hazardous Materials and Crash Indicator.

Next, scores are compared with other, similar carriers and ranked according to percentiles from 0 to 100, with lower numbers indicating a better safety record and worsening the closer they approach 100. A score of 30 on a single BASIC generally means that your fleet is performing in the top 30% of carriers in that category.
