Research Trucking Company Information

If you want to check SMS BASIC scores, carrier safety ratings or qualify carriers, we make it easy to research the most detailed, up-to-date information about trucking companies. Carrier411 gets data feeds directly from the FMCSA and consolidates them for you. Our carrier monitoring service provides the most reliable information for brokers and shippers to qualify carriers.

As of December 4, 2015, pursuant to the FAST Act of 2015 being signed into law, the FMCSA removed BASIC scores from public view on its website. The CSA program is not going away, but BASIC scores will remain unavailable to the public until the FMCSA can implement a corrective action plan.

The majority of CSA information related to property carrier compliance and safety performance will no longer be displayed publicly on the FMCSA SMS Website.

Streamlined Access to Information

Carrier411 provides streamlined access to current information about any trucking company. We consolidate and maintain several databases that we receive directly from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Our easy-to-use website and custom reports let you validate DOT authority, FMCSA safety records, insurance information and more within seconds.
