Cross-border trucking needs revisions, audit says
The program prohibits cabotage, which is when participating carriers pick up cargo from one U.S. location and deliver it to another point within the United States.
Teletrac holds the contract for installation and monitoring of electronic monitoring equipment in program trucks, which includes a clause to develop an automated means of detecting cabatoge. Auditors concurred with the agency’s statement that program participation is currently too low to warrant this level of support.
The OIG stated will it evaluate FMCSA’s actions to address all recommendations during its Congressionally mandated final audit, which is due six months after the program ends.
