The FMCSA’s Comprehensive Safety Analysis guarantees most every motor carrier will be scrutinized for safety compliance on a monthly basis. With scrutiny adds to your chances of being audited. Your company can go from a hero in safety compliance to a zero with just one bad driver.
Glostone Trucking Solutions can help with you through your audits and responding to audit requests.
As a new entrant into trucking, your company will be required to go through a detailed DOT safety compliance audit within the first 18 months of operation. Non-compliance with any one of sixteen key audit areas will result in failing the audit and could cancel your operating authority. Prior to an audit, we can review your records. If needed, we can help assist you in preparing. We can even sit with you and your auditor to help smooth the process. Should you need help after an audit to compose an action plan, we can assist there too!

As with DOT Safety Audits, the States can audit your Fuel/Mileage Tax reports and records as well as verify that the correct equipment registration fees were calculated and paid. As a Glostone Trucking Solutions client, we can assist you both in preparing for the audit as well as assist during the audit.
As the DOT intervenes to correct a safety problem, they usually will require a detailed response, in writing, as to the corrective actions you plan to take. Our service can help you build that plan and provide the timely correspondence necessary to comply with their requirements.
Once the FMCSA has assigned a less than satisfactory new safety rating or lowered a current rating, the process to upgrade that rating is daunting and time consuming, often taking months and many hours of work. We have successfully helped many clients through the upgrade process and have the expertise to make it as quick and as painless as possible. Don’t travel that road alone. We can help!
“We recently went thru a DOT Compliance Review and the DOT agent said that our files were “as good as he’s seen”. We have worked with Glostone for a few years now, and they have been instrumental in keeping our files up to date and compliant. I would highly recommend them.”
