Tennesseans Have the Means to Check the Safety Records of Trucking Companies

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.
