Bulk Loads LLC and CDL Legal LLC have reached an agreement to provide discounted legal benefits to Bulk Loads’ customers and subsidiaries including clients of their factoring company, Smart Freight Funding.
CDL Legal provides legal coverage in the event of moving and non-moving violations. They also help fleets navigate CSA issues by reviewing inspection violations and filing DataQ challenges on behalf of fleets. CDL Legal boasts a 92% success rate getting tickets reduced or dismissed. “The combination of fighting tickets and CSA violations can make a significant difference when it comes time to renew your insurance policy for the fleets that partner with us,” says Scott Shacklett, CEO of CDL Legal.
In addition to legal coverage, CDL Legal also provides professional drivers and fleets with access to a roadside assistance network and the most robust discount network for truck drivers on the market today. Fleets today are scrambling to find incentives to improve driver recruiting and retention. “CDL Legal has a full package of discount benefits along with legal coverage, that we hope will give our clients an edge in the market. It can even be offered at no cost to the carrier when made available to drivers as part of a benefits package through payroll/settlement deduction,” says Jared Flinn, Operating Partner for Bulk Loads.
The goal of the partnership is to provide Bulk Loads’ customers with easy access to legal and CSA assistance in this highly regulated environment. In order to scale a transport business, carriers need to control expenses and retain drivers. “We want our clients to have access to services like CDL Legal that will continue to help them grow,” says Jared Flinn.
