CMS is the leading full-service firm for companies utilizing Independent Contractors. CMS specializes in the transportation industry providing compliance, settlement processing and benefit solutions that deliver measurable advantages to both company owners and Independent Contractors. We have developed several programs to help reduce the administrative costs and risks associated with the use of Independent Contractors while working with our clients on multiple levels to help document the core of their business interactions with ICs. Once a client has initiated the CMS program, we continually provide advice and recommendations on issues relevant to the industry and assist with responses when the Independent Contractor model is challenged by a State or Federal Agency.

CMS offers programs to each Independent Contractor member so they are properly insured in the event they sustain an injury while providing services to their clients. Whether the members use the programs we offer or provide proof of their own coverage, CMS helps to reduce the liability that exists for the Logistics Company, their clients, the Independent Contractors and their families.
CMS has developed an electronic system that allows us to handle the settlement processing function for commissions owed to Independent Contractors who provide services to their clients. We have developed this system to help reduce the administrative costs and functions involved in the processing, reconciliation, and electronic distribution of commissions owed to Independent Contractors. CMS also handles the processing of 1099s for each Independent Contractor at the end of each tax year while reducing client exposure to IRS penalties resulting from inappropriate reporting. Further exposure reduction comes with management of financial compliance with court ordered garnishments, liens, child support, and levy collections.
CMS technology greatly reduces exposure to legal challenges by properly documenting the contractual relationship existing between Independent Contractors and the Logistic Company/Motor Carrier. Electronic Signature, Negotiation, Audit Trail, and Document Storage help our client time stamp, record, and audit transactions occurring in their business relationship with Independent Contractors, so in the case of a claim, knowing burden of proof falls on their shoulders, they can easily produce precise evidence in their defense.
CMS provides a variety of ancillary programs Independent Contractor members can access through the ICWeb. CMS has levied national buying power to establish several discounted programs and optional benefits at reduced rates for members. The discounted programs that have been established will help members save money on things they purchase everyday such as health insurance, medical and dental programs, tires, oil changes, tax preparation and quarterly submissions, financial planning, business insurances, etc. CMS has worked hard to create the best value for our clients and Independent Contractor Members.
Enrolling with CMS is a simple, paperless process allowing Independent Contractors to sign necessary documents with Click-to-Sign technology. Hard copy documents such as proof of insurance, credentials and certifications can easily be uploaded and attached to the Independent Contractor Profile. Our system is rigorously tested and backed by PCI Compliance Certification to ensure the transmission of sensitive material is only viewed by intended parties.
