DOT Audit Management, Fine Negotiation and Rating Upgrades

In the majority of FMCSA / DOT compliance reviews, there are numerous violations cited by FMCSA that could have been eliminated through a better understanding of evaluation criteria. As former FMCSA investigators, the staff of NTCI can review your FMCSA / DOT audit prior to a rating being issued to ensure that only valid violations are recorded. Our staff is also available to manage your FMCSA / DOT audit and interface with the FMCSA investigators during the auditing process to help mitigate the negative impact of an FMCSA / DOT compliance review.

NTCI can also provide you with the necessary guidance and resources if you have an enforcement action, civil forfeiture, or received less than a "Satisfactory" rating from FMCSA. Most carriers do not understand the impact an enforcement case can have on their company and will either pay the fine or enter into a consent agreement. We have the experience and expertise to help you in these matters and to minimize the effect on your company.

Our experienced consultants will help you address any deficiencies identified and present those corrective actions in a way that demonstrates you’re serious about safety and compliance. As a result, we have been able to develop an extraordinary record of successful outcomes for companies that want to do the right things, but have encountered challenges along the way.
