DOT Audit

A DOT audit can be one of the most stressful events for any transportation company. When FMCSA agents show up to review your records, operations and safety procedures, there’s no room for error.

But too often, trucking companies realize too late that they are unprepared for the intensive DOT audit process. Don’t let your business be one of them.

By working with our experienced compliance consultants, you can feel confident that you’ll pass your audit. We will:

  • Review your records and procedures to identify any red flags or issues.
  • Recommend corrective actions to address deficiencies.
  • Provide training for your staff on maintaining compliant processes.
  • Identify the most serious violations that can seriously damage your safety rating.

What are the benefits of a DOT Audit For Carriers?

For carriers and shippers, doing a mock DOT audit is one of the best ways to get the ‘big picture’ of your company’s compliance. It also helps identify where your compliance gaps are and analyze your risk.

Once the compliance audit is complete, you’ll receive a prioritized action plan and checklist to resolve issues before real audits.

Hazardous Materials Shipper Audits

An HM shipper’s audit focuses on processes that involve assessing the shipping hazardous materials in all modes that the shipper is engaged in: land, sea and air.

It will assess procedures, practices, and documentation of a shipper who transports hazardous materials. We can conduct a shippers audit and let you know where you stand with the hazardous materials regulations (HMR)

What Types of DOT Audits Are there?

Companies may undergo various Department of Transportation (DOT) audits, including New Entrant Audits, Compliance Reviews, Hazardous Material (HM) Shipper Audits, and Cargo Tank Facility Reviews. Which one you encounter will depend on how long your company has been in business and the type of operation you have.

It’s possible for your company to have to go through two types of audits because of multiple operations within the company. For example, hazmat carriers would be subject to both a ‘regular’ DOT audit and a hazmat shipper audit.
