PORTLAND, Ore. – Vigillo announced today (Dec. 7) that it has redesigned its Carrier Select tool, moving it from a downloadable application to a web-based application.
Carrier Select provides freight brokers, shippers and insurers real-time, sharable data for analyzing motor carrier performance, which helps businesses make more informed decisions.
“As a means of performing the due diligence required to defend against negligent hire lawsuits, we introduced Carrier Select four years ago so freight brokers, shippers and insurers can readily access the safety rating, operating authority, insurance and CSA scores of their motor carrier partners,” said Steven G. Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “With the blocking of CSA BASIC scores from public view under newly enacted legislation, combined with the lack of hiring standards, that due diligence becomes much more difficult and much more critical. As a more user-friendly, mobile enabled, web-based application, Carrier Select will become an even more valuable tool for our subscribers as they address that increasing need.”
Vigillo said that outside of the U.S.’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, it holds the largest database of Carrier CSA scores, and that the no-cots, opt-in model is available to any motor carrier to share those now-private CSA scores.
“Having never relied on publicly-available CSA data,” Bryan added, “Vigillo is uniquely positioned to fill the void left by the removal of public CSA scores. The day CSA is turned off from public view, Carrier Select turns on, and the communication of critical safety data between motor carriers and brokers and shippers continues without interruption.”
Vigillo creates big data and data mining software products for the transportation industry, taking large amounts of material and turning it into factually-reliable and usable information.
