Corra Group has seen increases in its Department of Transportation related employment screening as exports and the economy show robust signs of improvement.    American exports recently amounted to almost $200 Billion, narrowing the domestic trade deficit to a four year low.

“With the increase in manufacturing and exports of goods and services we have seen a related increase in DOT compliant background checks,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. “Ultimately, it is up to the trucking companies to deliver our goods to the docks for shipping overseas. Truckers are a key factor in making sure that American products reach their foreign destinations.”

Gustavson commented that Corra Group trucking and transportation clients have been telling him they are hiring in order to better service the manufacturing industry as well as the energy and oil companies. “Our clients can complain that good help is hard to find in the trucking industry,” Gustavson said. “Trucking clients experience heavy turnover, which requires constant access to the viable employment screening program so that they can remain compliant with the Department of Transportation.

“Corra Group offers Motor Vehicle Driving Records (MVRS) in all fifty states, as well as Canada, and Puerto Rico, at very competitive rates,” said Gustavson. In addition to the MVRs, we offer Fleet Alert. Fleet Alert’s user friendly software reports driver infractions in near real time. Should a driver have an accident, get a ticket, or have his license suspended, Fleet Alert will report it to the client. We offers batch order services for trucking’s annual MVR compliance needs.

“Once we show them how to order your background checks for your trucking package," said Gustavson, "companies can order MVRs and criminal records around the clock,” said Gustavson. Most Motor Vehicle Driving records, including CDL's, are returned from the State Department of Motor Vehicles in about 30 seconds. Records are returned in your email and permanently stored inside your account.”

Gustavson noted Corra Group offers DOT compliant drug tests as well as the DOT compliant random drug screening management system for trucking companies large and small. “We also offer DOT compliant employment verification,” which are vital for any employment screening program,” said Gustavson. “With new drivers, trucking companies have to conduct DOT employment verification for the past ten years. For current drivers, they need to go back for three years.”

The Corra Group Co-Founder said how he was glad to see America as back into manufacturing and that exports were on the rise. “Manufacturing is the heart of any nation,” said Gustavson. “And then it is up to the truckers to deliver to the ports. It’s good to see our economy turning around.”

BACKGROUND: Corra operates as Corra Group and specializes in pre-employment screening and corporate research and investigation. It is one of the few companies that will answer the phone.
