Credit service offers free trial for OOIDA members

| 8/11/2005

RTS Credit Services, Lenexa, KS, is giving OOIDA members a chance to check out those brokers and shippers they’ve been wondering about – for free.

As part of a deal OOIDA has worked out with the company, association members can try RTS’s credit rating service free for 90 days.

Randy Gunderman, manager of RTS, said it is more important than ever for truckers to use a credit reporting service.

“I think the people that need a credit service are either not using one, or they are relying on these credit scores on load boards,” he said. “Those are not always accurate.”

During the 90-day free trial, OOIDA members can get unlimited credit searches of the RTS database to read information about the paying practices of brokers and shippers. Gunderman said the data is updated daily and is based on first-hand information from truckers and others who have worked with the brokers and shippers.

“We think it’s perfect for the owner-operator,” he said.
