Ever wonder what those three little letters CSA mean when you see trucking company ads or job postings? CSA stands for Compliance, Safety, Accountability, and it’s one of the most important acronyms in the trucking industry.
If you’re considering a career as a truck driver, or even if you’re just curious about how the trucking industry works, you need to understand CSA scores and ratings. CSA impacts everything from how much a carrier can haul to how much they pay in insurance premiums.
High CSA scores mean lower risk and better opportunities for carriers and drivers. Low scores can mean trouble. As a driver, your CSA score follows you and determines what kind of jobs and hauls you can get.
