FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Some carriers are already beginning to use CSA 2010 scorecards as a sales and educational tool with shippers.

Schneider National has announced it is using Vigillo’s suite of CSA 2010 scorecards to bring shippers up to speed on the implications of the new US safety rating system.

“As we visit with our customers, CSA is increasingly a part of the conversation,” said Don Osterberg, senior vice-president of safety, security and driver training at Schneider National. “They are paying close attention because these companies can be at risk if they tender freight to an unsafe carrier. Vigillo is helping us to stay ahead of the curve, and have greater credibility with our customers as we work to identify solutions to supply chain challenges.”

Vigillo has also announced it is now offering a 3P Carrier Analysis Scorecard for shippers, brokers and underwriters which will allow them to evaluate their carriers’ performance under CSA

“Our new 3P Carrier Analysis Scorecard allows shippers, brokers and underwriters to ensure that their own risk tolerance levels are not exceeded,” said Steve Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “These companies, which work with hundreds and sometimes thousands of carriers, can be at risk for a negligent hire lawsuit if they place freight with an unsafe carrier. The new scorecards permit our 3P customers to set their own custom thresholds and determine which carriers fall within the boundaries of their specific risk profiles.”

Using the new service, shippers will be able to create a list of carriers to benchmark and to assign a weight to each of the categories in the CSA system. That information is then used to calculate a threshold that fits their risk comfort zone, Vigillo says.
