OOIDA's Motor Carrier Rating System: Soon to be online

| 9/10/2001

Have pertinent info on a motor carrier or personal experiences, good or bad, you'd like to share with fellow truckers? OOIDA's new Motor Carrier Rating System (MCRS) enables truckers to rate their carriers the same way carriers rate drivers using DAC Services and now it's easier than ever.

Anyone who has a CDL can submit documentation, and your identity is never disclosed. This valuable information is being gathered and recorded in a data base that is growing daily, but to be truly effective, it needs more input from drivers. So, OOIDA has expanded the MCRS to the Internet, making reporting easier than ever. If you have Internet access, as of Sept. 15, you can go to www.ooida.com or www.landlinemag.com and rate your carrier online.

Surveys are also available from OOIDA Business Services Department by mail or fax. You do not have to be an OOIDA member to submit rating information. Again, you will remain anonymous. To request a survey or ask how to get a report, call OOIDA Business Services Department at 1-800-444-5791.
