With truckers working all over the country, it is necessary they have access to drug testing wherever they are,” said Gordon Basichis, Corra Group Co-Founder.

Corra Group will soon be expanding its drug testing services so that its Trucking and Transportation clients will be better able to meet compliance standards mandated by the Department of Transportation or DOT. In the near future Corra Group may be adding drug screening providers to accommodate trucking groups in even the more remote regions of the United States.
Additionally, Corra Group has coordinated its random management drug screening program so it’s easier for drivers to be integrated into the system. In addition to drug testing, Corra Group has increased its facility to conduct DOT employment background checks. The expanded service enables trucking firms to use Corra Group as a full service DOT facility.
“Corra Group has seen the need to increase services so that trucking outfits can be compliant with DOT standards,” said Gordon Basichis, Corra Group Co-Founder. “As the nation’s economy starts to recover, established trucking firms are hiring drivers. And new firms are starting up. Some owners are new to the process and need guidance in assuring compliance with the DOT.”
Basichis pointed out that the surge in the energy industry has been a boon to the trucking industry. “Be it domestic oil production, natural gas, or even solar and sustainable energy, trucks are needed to haul equipment to and from the fields,” said Basichis. “Everything from drilling materials to windmills is being hauled around the country. Both raw and finished products need to be transported.”
Corra Group has been working in partnership with Quest Diagnostics in assuring that truckers and other employees have access to drug collection sites around the United States. The background checking service may soon be including additional vendors as it seeks to saturate drug collection facilities, especially in the remote areas.
“With truckers working all over the country, it is necessary they have access to drug testing wherever they are,” said Basichis. “Some drivers are out on the road, and they can’t do their DOT drug testing at the collection sites near their home offices. So with added testing facilities, it’s convenient for them to do their testing wherever they are.”
Basichis noted how any employer in need to meet DOT standards must conduct special employment verification for DOT compliance. For new drivers, the employer must verify up to ten years of employment history. For current drivers, they must conduct employment verifications for the past three years.
“Best to be compliant, before you face suspension,” said Basichis.
