We Take Pride in Our FMCSA Motor Carrier Zero Alert Status
Mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in 2010,
the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) regulations established a new nationwide
system for making roads safer for motor carriers and the public alike.
Hermann Transportation and Leasing is proud to report that the company maintains
a zero alert status in every safety category monitored by the FMCSA. This means
than Hermann Services does not exceed the intervention threshold based upon
on-road performance and investigation results.
The new FMCSA Operational Model monitors a motor carrier's data from roadside
inspections including safety-based violations, state-reported crashes, and the
Federal motor carrier census to quantify performance in the following Behavior

served as a charter member of the 2009 pilot program that lead to the official
2010 CSA program.
Hermann Services uses the Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) for all new
driver hires, which helps make more informed hiring decisions through electronic
access to a driver's crash and inspection history from the FMCSA Motor Carrier
Management Information System (MCMIS). Hermann Services also conducts on-going
CSA training for managers and drivers companywide as well as semi-annual driver
safety meetings covering HAZMAT, roadside compliance, and injury and
The Hermann training sessions, which are not required by FMCSA, educate drivers
how to be prepared for an inspection and stay in compliance. The company's random
drug and alcohol testing are also well above the required standards. Therefore,
the number of incidents reported from vehicle and driver inspections is well below
the national average. Hermann Services clients also benefit from the company's
participation in the Captive Insurance Group, which requires high safety and
Based on Hermann Services' commitment to safety, customers can be confident that
their freight is in the hands of premium drivers with clean driving records operating
a safe fleet of vehicles. This assures low liability costs and on-time delivery
without fleet check alerts.
