SmartWay carriers

SmartWay is the US EPA's program for improving fuel efficiency and reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution from the transportation supply chain industry. Carrier411 makes it easy to find and identify all SmartWay Transport Partners.


CARB compliant carriers

Brokers and shippers can find, qualify and monitor carriers in any state that are 100% compliant with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Regulation for Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs).


CSA Compliance Safety Accountability

Carrier411 makes it quick and easy to qualify and monitor carriers using CSA BASIC Scores.


We provide the most recent CSA BASIC Statistics for all carriers in these categories:


  • • Unsafe Driving
  • • Hours of Service (HOS) Compliance
  • • Driver Fitness
  • • Controlled Substances and Alcohol
  • • Vehicle Maintenance

CSA 2010 replaced the SafeStat system for rating carriers and provides a new and improved way to measure carrier safety and compliance.

CSA BASIC scores are released at the beginning of each month and do not change until they are released the following month. Learn more about Safety Measurement System BASIC Scores.

California Air Resources Board (CARB) Compliance

Beginning January 1, 2013, any broker, forwarder, shipper or receiver that hires a carrier to transport perishable goods on California highways or railways must only hire or contract with carriers that agree to dispatch Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs) that meet CARB's performance standards for TRUs. Carrier411 integrates CARB data and provides the ability to identify CARB compliant carriers.
