The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Adminsitration (FMCSA) maintains several websites that permit residents of Tennessee and indeed the world to determine the safety record of trucking companies.
Here is a list of the available sites and what information can be gathered from each site:
- The Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) System: This website offers company safety data and related services to industry and the public. Some information can be found about a carrier’s liability insurance on this website.
- The Company Snapshot: The Snapshot is a concise electronic record of a company’s identification, size, commodity information, and safety record, including the safety rating (if any), a roadside out-of-service inspection summary, and crash information.
- The Analysis and Information site: This site helps those interested in moving passengers select the right vehicle and find the safest companies to assist in that effort.
Each of these services are free.
