Tallgrass Freight Company and CDL Legal have reached an agreement to provide discounted legal benefits to Tallgrass Freight carriers and drivers.
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 in 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.
Fleets today are scrambling to find incentives to improve driver recruiting and retention. That’s why, 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. “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,” says David Barnes, COO, Tallgrass Freight. “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.”
The goal of the partnership is to provide Tallgrass Freight carriers with easy access to legal and CSA assistance in this highly regulated environment. In order for carriers to remain healthy, they need to control expenses and retain drivers. Retaining drivers is becoming more difficult, and additional value-added benefits make a big difference. “We want our carriers to have access to services like CDL Legal that will provide them with CSA experts and additional driver benefits,” Barnes says.
