Mr. XXXX XXXXXX- President
XXXXXXXXXX Corp
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXX, AL #####

Dear Mr XXXXXX:

Thank you for the time that you provided our safety auditor during his recent visit. Overall, it appears that you
have a good safety program in place. During the visit our safety engineer, Bob Hampton noted a few things that
should be addressed to improve your level of safety and compliance. I have outlined these areas below.

Rec # Priority (C = Critical; I = Important; S = Suggested)Recommendation
01        S     We suggest when you issue a copy of the written safety manual to a new driver at orientation,
have them sign a sheet documenting receipt. The signature page would then go into the driver qualification or
personnel file.

02          S     We suggest implementation of a formal safety awards program for accident free driving and
other safety related items, i.e., no log violations, no violations at roadside inspections, increased tractor MPG, no
traffic citations, etc. The program can be based on either miles or months/years without violations in the target
areas. You may want to tie in the presentations with your annual safety meetings to make a bigger impact with
the drivers and/or family members. Professional drivers really appreciate recognition for their safety
accomplishments.

03        S     We suggest a monetary incentive for drivers that go through a roadside inspection with "no
violations." Typically, $50-$100 for each "clean" inspection is a good driver incentive. Lesser amounts may be
appropriate for your particular operation. Sell the program as a means to help the company and drivers improve
the CSA BASIC scores while decreasing driver OOS waiting time. Remember to emphasize, drivers are
penalized for excessive violations which could potentially lead to the loss of their CDL.

04        S      We suggest a policy of remedial training for drivers receiving log violations, roadside
inspection violations, traffic citations and/or preventable accidents. This extra training could be either classroom
or observation rides with the driver depending on the particular violation. The extra training might highlight
some poor habits or practices and could correct a problem before it become a major issue. Document the
training and place in the DQ or personnel file.

05          I      It is important for drivers using the 100 mile exemption and keeping a time sheet to be released
from duty within 12 hours subject to Part 395.1(1)(ii) of the FMCSA regulations. If a driver is on duty for 12 hrs
or more, they must prepare a log for that particular day. Some interstate carriers require all drivers to use logs
regardless of driving status (local or linehaul) to limit confusion. In your case, since your interstate carriage is
still rather limited, you may find it easier to just have the local driver complete a log for only the 12 hour day(s)
and use the time sheet for other days. Obviously, all interstate linehaul drivers must maintain a log accounting
for each day.




CVLCS 12/12/2010
06         S     We suggest implementing a written progressive disciplinary program for driver log violations,
roadside inspection/moving violations and preventable accidents. Start with a verbal counseling and/or extra
training but explain continued violations could result in more serious discipline up to a suspension and possible
discharge. A progression is then established for future warning letters, usually 3 written warnings in 12 months
would be grounds for discharge. A signature would be required by the driver and the supervisor discussing the
violation. The signed copy goes into the DQ or personnel file. Obviously, the intent is not to discharge drivers
but to improve their performance. This policy would be consistent with the safety programs mentioned in Recs
#2 and #3 above… warnings for violations and rewards for no violations.

07         C     It is critical for XXXXXXX Corp to continue preparation for the new FMCSA CSA program
just implemented. Driver training and management awareness are very important to make sure you are in
compliance. There are several information websites on line that could be of assistance to you. In addition, you
are welcome to use our website at www.thornvalleyent.net. Just click on the CSA information link shown to the
left of the home page. The Alabama Trucking Assn or JJ Keller offer training material and speakers specifically
to assist with CSA.

Since you are new into interstate trucking, you may want to consider a safety consultant in you area to perform a
mock DOT audit and help with CSA or other safety issues. I'm sure Alabama Trucking Assn would be willing to
furnish a list of reputable consultants if you are interested.

Please review the following recommendations and contact us in writing to let us know what changes you
anticipate making and the time frame for implementing them. The information provided at the time of the safety
auditor’s visit should help you with your compliance efforts.

Thank you again for your time. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call.

Sincerely,


Walter Guntharp
President

 Discuss any Critical Improvements that are required: XXXXXX Corp needs more CSA preparation and training.
     There is not much CSA data available due to the 2010 entry into interstate carriage (was intrastate only until
     then) so roadside inspections are limited.
 List major positive factors: Low driver turnover, good experienced driver base, well paying cargo (+$3.00/mile)…
      long-term mgt team.
 Overall management safety attitude: Good
 Remarks: Well managed company with a strong and specific market for the area.



                                                   (I) (a) NARRATIVE
Account Overview:
        Irregular route truckload carrier using dump vans. Common carrier authority with 97% of cargo
        in AL and approximately 3% in MS. Company received Interstate authority in 2010 primarily
        for business in MS. Until then, they were a Intrastate AL carrier only. The company is 29 yrs
        old with Don Oswalt the Founder/Owner and Sec/Treasurer. YYYYY'S son, ZZZZ is the
        President/COO. They are a dedicated dump van carrier with specific customers. They appear to
        be well managed with estimated revenue for 2010 at $7.1 million and estimated miles at 2.3
        million ($3.09/mile.) The terminal building and shop building are well maintained. Gravel yard
        is a little rough but serviceable. Above-ground diesel tanks are in good order and well
        maintained. Currently, no DOT audit or safety rating has been awarded. CSA Basic scores are
        all within guidelines.


Operations:
        Basically a 7am-5pm operation with dispatch on call if any drivers are out past normal office
        hrs. Don-Dell is a short haul carrier with 70% of total miles in the 0-50 mile range and the
        remaining 30% in the 50-200. Avg length of haul is about 75 miles. Approximately 97% of the
        IFTA miles are in AL with 3% in MS. Drivers return home same day except in very rare
        occasions when they remain out overnight. They received their Interstate authority in 2010 to
        expand into MS, they were strictly an Intrastate AL carrier until then. Deadhead runs about
        40% due to cargo restrictions and limited backhauls. Commodities consist of raw coal, gravel
        and sand. They have no brokerage authority, haul no haz mat and have no owner-operators.


Vehicles and Equipment:
        46 company tractors- age range '90 (1) -'08 (4). 3 older tractors will be sold when the market
        improves. 14 are over 10 yrs old. 48 dump van trailers- age range '82 (1) - '09 (2), 27 exceed 10
        yrs old.


Inspection, Repair and Maintenance:
        All of the equipment appears to be in good shape and well maintained, almost entirely by their
  Revised 10/12//2010                  TVE Commercial Vehicle Loss Control Survey                               Page 4 of 12
        shop. The Vehicle Maintenance Basic stands at 69.1% (80% is the intervention threshold) and
        the Vehicle Safer OOS is 15.2% (22.3% is the natl avg.) These numbers indicate a good
        maintenance program; however, limited roadside inspections have been performed. 50% of the
        violations discovered were for improperly functioning lights. They are working to install a
        better lighting system. Individual equipment files are organized and in good order… Annual
        inspections are current.


Safety Management
        No DOT audit has been performed and no safety rating has been assigned. XXXXX is the
        Ops/Safety Mgr with about 6 yrs experience. XXXX is assisted by the company President,
        ZZZZZ, on safety/operations issues with most duties shared. The operation is small with
        consistent runs to consistent customers leaving time from dispatch for both to work on safety.
        Each driver receives a copy of a written safety manual but no acknowledgement is required by
        the driver. Note: Will mention in recs to get a signature sheet.
        They have no formal safety awards program and no monetary safety incentives for "clean"
        roadside inspections. Note: Will discuss both in recs.

Staffing and Personnel:
        Office: 1- Owner/Sec/Treasurer, 1- President/COO, 1- Operations/Safety Mgr, 1- HR
        Mgr/Secretary, 1- Payroll/Office Asst (5 total)
        Shop: 1- Lead Mechanic, 4 mechanics (5 total)
        Drivers: 35- company singles (35 total)


Driver Selection, Hiring and Orientation:
        No drivers under age 24, 1 over 65. Written hiring criteria with insurance company to screen
        questionable MVR's. Must be at least 23 yrs of age and 2 yrs experience with dump trailers.
        MVR review, interview process and past employment verifications appear adequate. Driver
        turnover rate is about 40%. MVR's and physicals are current but some annual reviews are a
        little late they will complete them by 1/3/11. Driver qualification files are ok. Driver data
        sheets were not used but they will begin in '11 with new hires. Drug and alcohol testing
        programs are current and well managed.
        Orientation lasts about 6 hrs and covers the basics of safety and operations appears adequate.
        PSP program to screen new drivers is being utilized.


Driver Safety Training and Awards Program:
        Driver safety meetings are held annually and documented. Attendance is required if no
        emergency exists. No regular re-occurring/periodic or remedial training except for accident
        follow-up. Note: Will mention in recs.
        It is critical for CSA training to be increased to prepare drivers and mgt. Note: Will mention in
        recs.




  Revised 10/12//2010            TVE Commercial Vehicle Loss Control Survey                   Page 5 of 12
Driver Supervision:
        Trucks are governed at 70mph. Matt manually audits the logs that are required for the interstate
        operation (about 3% of the total.) The majority of the drivers run local with a time sheet and
        use the 100 mile exemption; however, some locals are exceeding the 12 hr requirement and not
        logging. Note: Will discuss in recs.
        All though log errors and roadside violations are minimal, a progressive disciplinary program
        should be implemented in conjunction with CSA to correct recurring problems that may arise.
        Note: Will discuss in recs.
        All other CSA BASICS other than Vehicle Maintenance are "Inconclusive" or "Not Available"
        with only 34 inspections to gauge compliance due to being a new interstate entrant in '10.
        Note: Don-Dell may want to seek an outside safety consultant to perform a mock DOT audit
        and assist with CSA training. I'll mention as a comment in the recs.

Crash Countermeasures and Controls:
        DOT accidents for '09 and '10 are minimal. No extra countermeasures or controls exist except
        normal counseling for minor preventable accidents or termination for major preventable
        accidents involving serious injury or property damage.
        Accident register is current.


DOT Compliance:
        No serious DOT compliance issues are apparent; however, a complete mock audit may be in
        order since they are a new interstate carrier entrant.

Remarks: No safety rating as yet… Received Interstate authority in '10 (Was AL Intrastate only until then.) Fatality
accident was a "no fault" (driver was rear-ended while sitting still.) Minimal inspections so BASICS are within
thresholds or inconclusive. Only major issues were light problems that inflated "Vehicle Maint". New light systems
are now being installed to correct the problem… Safer OOS %'s are all within established guidelines.

Remarks: XXXXXXX is the Ops Mgr/Safety Mgr. He is assisted by ZZZZZZ on operations and safety issues with
  most duties pretty much shared. The arrangement seems to work ok. The operation is small with consistent runs
  to consistent customers so drivers are familiar with their assignments leaving more mgt time outside dispatch for
  duties in safety. They were awarded Interstate authority in 2010. Up until then, they were an Ala Intrastate
  carrier only. They have a written Safety Manual but not a written Driver Manual, XXXX is working on one but
  has a ways to go. Most critical info is covered in safety manual. Receipt of the Safety Manual is not acknowleged
  by the driver. No written Safety Awards program and no other safety incentive programs in place. Note: Will
  mention receipt of Safety Manual and awards/incentive programs in recs.

Remarks: XXXXXX, Ops/Safety Mgr, has about 6 yrs experience and audits the logs manually. They began using
  logs in 2010 when they became an interstate carrier and started running in MS. The majority of the drivers use
  time sheets due to the 100 mile exemption with MS freight still only about 3% on the total miles. Some drivers on
  the time sheet do exceed the less-than 12 hr day requirement. Note: Will mention in recs using logs for locals over
  12 hrs and a progressive disciplinary program for log violations. ZZZZZZ may want to consider bringing in a
  safety consultant for awhile to assist with their move into interstate carriage.
