A successful trucking company must have high Compliance Safety Accountability (CSA) scores. CSA, or Compliance, Safety, and Accountability is a government program designed to assure dependability and safety. The CSA score is used to determine whether or not a company requires a DOT visit.

Good scores lead to more customers and greater business chances.
