Before & After a DOT Investigation: How to Prepare and Recover Successfully

Webcasts
Once an investigator has begun an audit or review, there’s little the carrier can do to influence the outcome. What can be discovered likely will be. However, a carrier can impact the result before the official notice is received and there is much to be done after the investigation is complete. Even if a satisfactory rating is received, there is risk that needs to be mitigated. There’s always room for improvement. Rather than focusing on the review itself, in this webcast will hone in on: • The difference between a new entrant audit and a compliance review • Understanding the three primary triggers of a compliance review • What to do between getting a USDOT number and the auditor arriving • Realizing it is not whether violations will be found, but of what type and severity • A review of the new entrant audit automatic “fails” • How to improve your processes and reduce your risk regardless of the outcome Time will also be reserved for a live Q&A session.
