FMCSA Pulls Proposed Rules, Car Transport Carriers Rejoice

Car Transport CarriersLast January, the FMCSA – the main overseer of the auto transport industry – proposed new rules to determine which companies were safe and which weren’t. But now, the FMCSA has withdrawn its safety plan proposal, and many car transport carriers are rejoicing.

The plan was to rework the way carriers were rated. Be that auto transporters, produce haulers, or other long-haul trucking companies – everyone would have to abide by the new system. The new system would have changed the current one of Satisfactory, Conditional and Unsatisfactory to a Fit/Unfit system.

This was met with skepticism by many trucking companies, auto haulers and not. However, the FMCSA stated that they would be able to check upwards of 75,000 companies per month instead of the current 15,000.

How the New Rule Would Have Affected Car Transport Carriers

Switching from the system they have in place to a brand new system would have been interesting. For starters, the new system would have basically been a “pass/fail” type of situation, which seems nice on paper. But there are a lot of things that go into such a rating. Also, when a regulatory body has the power the FMCSA does, it’s important they don’t abuse it. With a pass-fail option, many car transport carriers worried about overreach. Shutting down a company by giving an unfit rating – even if they were fit – can cause issues.

This is because the new ruling would have allowed the FMCSA to shut companies down based on ratings alone. This is problematic, considering the ratings system they use, known as CSA BASIC. The CSA BASIC system is known to have flaws and has had them for some time. Being able to shut down companies off that alone struck many truckers as a problem.

What all this means for you and your car transport carriers

Really, nothing. Nothing has changed, so things pretty much stay the same. Auto transporters don’t have to follow new, wonky rules. This means that prices will likely stay the same, there won’t be any effect on routes or where carriers can or can’t go. More importantly, it means that the carriers already on the road are going to stay on the road.

If the new ratings system were to have passed, it could have jeopardized companies on the road. And while we here at American Auto Shipping believe in safety first, we can’t deny that sometimes, there’s a fine line between being safe and being overzealous. It’s like being a parent – sure, you want your kids safe. But too safe, and you run the risk of being a “helicopter parent” which is a problem too. With the new system, the FMCSA could have had a much bigger hand in whether carriers are able to operate, which could potentially cause problems for customers as well.
