Dépèche transmise le 8 juillet 2011 par Business Wire

LOWELL, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JBHT) announced today the Company has launched a new web site, www.WhatisCSA.com. Created as a public service to help improve highway safety, the site promotes the sharing of information about the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) safety initiative called CSA (Compliance, Safety, Accountability).

“We want WhatisCSA.com to be a valuable information tool for the industry that helps make our highways safer for everyone.”

Formerly called Comprehensive Safety Analysis, or CSA 2010, CSA’s accountability measures affect nearly every interstate driver, motor carrier, private fleet and shipper with more stringent requirements for compliance, heightened accountability, and a potential for greater liability. WhatisCSA.com’s purpose is to offer a means for the transportation industry and the public to find resources for understanding and addressing CSA’s requirements.

“At J.B. Hunt, safety is a core value,” said Greer Woodruff, Senior Vice President of Corporate Safety at J.B. Hunt. “We want WhatisCSA.com to be a valuable information tool for the industry that helps make our highways safer for everyone.”

Visitors to WhatisCSA.com will find common-sense overviews of the CSA initiative and its model for measurement, evaluation and intervention. Information is geared toward the specific concerns for drivers, carriers, private fleets and shippers and is tailored to each of them individually.

Among WhatisCSA.com’s most popular features is an easy-to-use “Scores” page, allowing users to search for CSA scores for any carrier by multiple criteria from DOT number or carrier name to city, state, zip code or country. The “Resources” page provides multiple links to outside content, as well as a CSA-related news feed, a glossary of CSA terms, links to social media such as Facebook and Twitter, and interactive features such as CSA-related quizzes.

Ultimately, the goal is better access to information for both the transportation industry and the public. “WhatisCSA.com helps us collaborate and share CSA information throughout our entire enterprise and beyond,” Woodruff said. “We want to remain at the forefront of compliant carriers, and WhatisCSA.com reaffirms our commitment to be a leader in the area of transportation safety.”
