Legally removing FreightGuard reports

About Lesson

In the trucking industry, brokers play a key role as they are the ones who pay carriers for their services. This gives them the power to set the rules and conditions. To ensure transparency, brokers have created a platform that keeps track of reviews and reputation scores for all carriers registered with the FMCSA.

If a carrier doesn't follow the rules, other brokers can see it on the platform and may choose not to work with them. When negative comments about your company are visible to everyone, most brokers might not consider you as a potential client. This can be tough because having your truck waiting without a load can result in significant financial losses—around $3,000 to $4,000 per week, or even more.

Now you can see how important it is to understand this lesson. We will discuss the platform, what a freight guard report is, how to check if you have one against your company, and, most importantly, how to remove a freight guard report.

By learning about these topics and taking action, you can protect your company's reputation, improve your chances of working with brokers, and minimize potential financial setbacks.
