Helpful Steps To Pass Inspection Stops


Roadside inspections create operational delays that may result in financial losses. Every time a truck is stopped for an inspection, this delay may impact key performance indicators tracked by the motor carriers, such as on-time delivery, out-of-service rates, and customer satisfaction, to name a few.

To help manage this risk, try reducing the number of roadside inspections your company must take part in. One way to achieve this is by building a history of clean inspections.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) utilizes the Inspection Selection System (ISS) to prioritize carriers by assigning inspection recommendations and inspection values based, in part, on a motor carrier’s Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories’ (BASICs) percentile values from the FMCSA’s Safety Measurement System (SMS).
