“As we continue expanding into the trucking and transportation industry, Corra Group wants to meet all the needs of our clients so they can remain compliant with the Department of Transportation," said Nick Gustavson, co-founder of Corra Group.

As a full service provider for the Trucking and Transportation Industry, Corra Group has adopted a new program for helping its clients meet their DOT compliances standards. The background checking agency has been informed by truckers they are experiencing greater scrutiny by the Department of Transportation in order to assure the necessary standards are met to optimize driver safety on both the interstates and local highways.    
     “Some of our newer trucking clients have told us the DOT inspector had been reviewing their records to make sure these companies were compliant with DOT regulations,” said Nick Gustavson, Co-Founder of Corra Group. “We don’t know if there has been an actual overall increase in inspections on the part of the DOT or whether these are trucking companies that have compliance issues before or are just being spot checked. Whatever it is, we welcome any efforts that will increase highway safety. Corra Group will work to make sure our clients conform to the standards established by the Department of Transportation.”
     Gustavson noted that Corra Group is adjusting its services to accommodate the increased needs of the newly founded trucking companies that are springing up around the country. “Brand new companies are signing up,” he said. “Some of the newer trucking firms are started by former employees at traditional trucking groups who have decided to go out on their own.
     “Others are being started by relatively recent immigrants whom come to this country with spouse and family,” said Gustavson. “This is their first venture in American enterprise. We love to see this.”
     Gustavson noted that to be DOT compliant the trucking outfit must review all drivers’ MVRs, at least once every twelve months. Random drug tests must be conducted through a third party management consortium. Specially focused DOT employment verifications have to be conducted on new and current drivers or any employee in a DOT related position.
     “As we continue expanding into the trucking and transportation industry, Corra Group wants to meet all the needs of our clients so they can remain compliant with the Department of Transportation.
     “Our clients can order MVRs, criminal records, and any other kind of background search around the clock. Truckers will never lose a background check because all reports are permanently databased into their accounts. The database has proven useful to many truckers, during any DOT auditing. The user can merely log in to their account, review and print employment screening so they are always prepared for any DOT audit.”
