    So I was looking at National Express Carriers Facebook page and saw where they had some really nice trucks. So I decided to check their DOT rating. I was shocked to see that it was conditional. So my question is, how can a trucking company with new trucks and trailers and mostly compliant drivers, still have a conditional rating?
    Or is the rating old and hasn’t yet been updated?

    What’s the deal with that ?

    A conditional rating can also be because they don’t have an actual safety department or steps towards safety. A company I used to work for got a conditional rating because of that
