FMCSA Shuts Down Carrier For Withholding Safety Records

In July, a ruling was passed that would allow the FMCSA to revoke a carrier’s operating authority based not on their poor safety record, but on a lack of cooperation with authorities. For the first time ever, the FMCSA has shut down a company for refusing to allow access to their records.
