Roger onRamp™ helps shippers and carriers alike reduce risk and simplify processes to keep you and your team moving.
OMAHA, Neb., May 31, 2022 – In a crash statistics report released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrations FMCSA, the settlement cost of a large truck accident with one person injured averaged $148,279 in 2021. The cost with accidents involving a fatality started at $3 Million. And with a staggering 180,316 large truck accidents reported in 2021, there’s a lot to be said about the true cost of poor risk management and overlooked compliance measures in the dry bulk shipping industry.
In a market that is laser-focused on getting from point A to point B, shippers and carriers alike depend on one another to move products safely and keep each haul fully compliant. Today, this manual process involves a lot of specific paperwork between several stakeholders allowing too much room for error. Many companies have multiple systems and no real time way to tell if a carrier is compliant. This outdated process has carriers struggling to keep insurance certificates and other necessary files up to date. Ultimately leaving shippers at higher risk of using non-compliant carriers.
It’s obvious that there is room for improvement when it comes to risk and compliance management in the movement of bulk products. But the unfortunate truth of the matter is that risk management and carrier compliance are not always top of mind for everyone involved in the day-to-day business. When carriers are required to have consistent communication on the job and deliver loads safely it’s nearly impossible to expect that the additional responsibilities of tedious insurance measures be completed correctly and on time. Especially when insurance and safety documentation are due on the initial start date with a shipper, rather than on a fiscal or calendar year rotation. Not only does this make working with multiple shippers difficult, it also substantially increases the risk for all parties involved.
Which leads us to the million-dollar question: Why isn’t there an easier way to improve risk management and compliance in bulk freight trucking?
