2021 CVSA Roadcheck

04 May 2021

Author: Evan Pundyk

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will be conducting its annual International Roadcheck May 4-6. During the 72-hour period, commercial vehicle inspectors in jurisdictions throughout Canada, Mexico, and the United States will conduct inspections on commercial motor vehicles and drivers with emphasis on lighting and hours of service. 


Historically, DOT Week has impacted shipping. The inspections are taking place throughout the year but the increased volume during this period has an impact on capacity.

  • In 2020, 49,039 inspections were conducted and 8,073 vehicles and 2,500 drivers were out of service 
  • In 2019, 67,072 inspections were conducted and 12,019 vehicles and 3,173 drivers were out of service
  •  In 2018, 67,603 inspections were conducted and 11,910 vehicles and 2,666 drivers were out of service

*These numbers represent North American Standard Levels I, II and III Inspections conducted in the United States and Canada

If a vehicle or driver is put out of service, they cannot resume operating until all violations are resolved. Because of this, some carriers shut down operations for this short period of time which leads to an overall impact in the market. 

In order for shippers to prepare for a decrease in available capacity and minimize supply chain disruptions, here are a few best practices to implement.


Tender loads for the week of  May 3 ASAP. Provide your carrier partners with additional time to secure capacity for the most critical and time sensitive freight.


Work with your carrier partners, vendors, and suppliers to extend shipping windows and MABDs. Consider pushing out loads to the 2nd week of May to avoid increased tender rejections and potentially paying higher rates in the spot market.


Communicate early with your carrier partners which loads are time sensitive and do not have flexible ship dates. Provide as much information as possible about your time sensitive freight where delays could result in fines and / or plant shutdowns.
