This means we want to begin our relationship with an agreement on all the terms and conditions for the use of this website. This overview will help avoid misunderstandings. This document contains all the rules for use and terms of our agreement with you and your company, the "Site User" or "User", for the service we shall provide. Your subscription to our service and use of this website is acceptance by you and your company of the terms and conditions in this Agreement. We understand the individual who registers your company as a Site User has full authority to do so, and we rely on you and your company's assurance that such is the case. If anyone else uses your account, they are also subject to the terms of this Agreement. We ask, and you agree, that any such user has read this Agreement and accepts it. By using the site, we understand and you agree, that you understand all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and agree to abide and be bound by them. If you have any suggestions, questions or comments about this Agreement or our website, please let us know.


It seems like change is everywhere around us. And our website is no different. Wouldn't it be a shame if we never updated our site to make it easier to navigate, more user friendly and more informative? So, we are constantly looking at how to make it better and improving it with new features and enhancements. Every time we make it better, we make changes and updates. Some of the changes we make from time to time will be to this Agreement. You agree that we can make changes in our sole and independent discretion to this Agreement and the site, post it on the site, and you will abide by the changes and be bound by the terms. It will be your responsibility to inspect this agreement for those changes.


Motor Carrier Qualification and Monitoring

Carrier411 Services, Inc. shall maintain current Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration information as provided to us by the FMCSA for motor carrier insurance coverage, including but not limited to bodily injury and property damage limits, cargo insurance coverage, policy numbers, insurance company name and contact information, docket number, authority status, census data, carrier safety rating and CSA 2010 scores. We shall maintain this information for all carriers, brokers and freight forwarders registered with the FMCSA. We will constantly monitor this information for you, so if and when there is a change in a company's insurance, surety bond, operating authority or safety rating, we can notify you that change has taken place in several ways. You can find changes directly through our website when you log in, and when you run reports for the companies you monitor. We can also automatically notify you of changes by email using the email addresses you provide, and by fax using the fax number you provide. We will not send you information by email or fax about changes in status of companies you monitor if there is no change. It is up to you to visit our website to obtain the details of any changes. If you do not visit our website to see changes, then we are not responsible. Nor are we responsible for the action or lack of action you take after we update any changes, regardless of whether you are aware of them.


We Maintain Current Information

The information we have is the same information that was provided to and maintained by the FMCSA. However, we make it readily available to you in an easy-to-use, understandable, consolidated format with enhanced features and reporting capabilities. Although our information is as current and up-to-date as we can make it, we have not verified the information with the carrier, broker, freight forwarder or insurance company. We do not obtain or maintain insurance certificates or certificates of operating authority. Therefore, we cannot warrant or guarantee the accuracy of the information provided. If there is a dispute over this information, we want to know about it, but keep in mind that we are simply an information service. And in order to protect ourselves, you agree that you will not bring us into any dispute that may arise as a result of information provided. In order to do so, you agree to release Carrier411 Services, Inc., its officers, employees and agents from all claims, liability, obligations, demands and damages, actual and consequential, of every kind and nature, known or unknown, in any way connected with such disputes and to hold us harmless from all liability and damages. We do everything we can to create a positive experience for all Site Users, and we will act promptly on your comments and suggestions, but we cannot control the conduct or business of carriers or the users of our website. We also provide you with links to other websites not controlled or owned by Carrier411 Services, Inc. You agree that we are not responsible for the content and hold us harmless against any liability resulting from your use of those sites.


We Approve Only Qualified Members

Our service is for brokers, shippers, freight forwarders and companies that deal with motor carriers. We don't want people and companies not in the transportation business registering on our site. It just adds to our cost, does not benefit you, and it means we have to divert resources from making your experience positive and productive. In order to register as a Site User, you must be a shipper, transportation broker, third party logistics provider, freight forwarder, factoring company or transportation-related business. Use of the Carrier411 website is for qualifying and monitoring information about carriers, brokers and freight forwarders. You don't want your competition knowing your secrets. We feel the same way. So by subscribing to our service and using our website, you agree that you and your company will not use any of the information available to compete against us, either directly or indirectly, online or elsewhere.

Our service is only available to individuals at least 18 years of age and companies that can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.
