Chameleon Carrier

Definition

Chameleon Carrier — a chameleon carrier is a trucking company that typically has a marginal safety record and a tenuous financial situation. It often does not comply with government regulations and may have little regard for safe processes. If cited or closed down by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the chameleon carrier quickly changes its name and address and restarts operations.
