Complying with Chain of Responsibility obligations will be a choice organizations will need to make, whether a legal requirement is imposed or not.

C3 Solutions, a provider of software solutions dedicated to the area of yard management and dock scheduling announces the release of its latest White Paper entitled Understanding Chain of Responsibility in the Supply Chain – Road Safety is No Longer the Sole Responsibility of Carriers.
Safety on the highways is a matter of great public concern. With increasing traffic congestion and the predominance of trucking as the main means of freight transportation in our consumer goods-oriented economy, it's no wonder that scrutiny of the trucking industry has gained in both scope and intensity.
Recent incidents involving heavy vehicles on the road are influencing the legislative landscape across the world. As outlined in this White paper, regulatory bodies recognize that responsibility for highway safety goes well beyond mere driver compliance to HOS regulations – thus bringing forward the concept of Chain of Responsibility in the Supply Chain.
“Complying with Chain of Responsibility obligations will be a choice organizations will need to make, whether a legal requirement is imposed or not. Ensuring companies are doing all they can to eliminate preventable incidents caused by heavy vehicles is already the ethical business choice. While we can all agree that the public’s desire for increased road safety is a good thing, it will require changes throughout the supply chain— and that is why we’re talking about it.”, states co-author Gregory Braun, Senior Vice-President, Sales & Marketing.
This White Paper explains the concept of Chain of Responsibility (CoR), how it has been implemented in other jurisdictions, how it may affect your business and what you need to do to ensure you are prepared and protected.
