El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Corra Group is increasing its employment screening services to it trucking and transportation clients. The expanded services will not only help truckers meet Department of Transportation or DOT compliance standards, but will assist in evaluating potential drivers. Corra Group presently offers motor vehicle driving records, or MVRs, for the entire United States as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. It can also retrieve driving records for various countries around the world.
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. It now offers the Pre-Employment Screening Program made available through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
“Trucking is pretty robust right now,” said Nick Gustavson, Co-Founder of Corra Group. “The energy industry, especially, is hiring truckers for the gas and oil fields as well as for hauling. Trucking companies around the country are being contracted to haul everything from parts and equipment to the fuel itself.
“It’s essential that trucking and transportation groups maintain DOT compliance standards, “said Gustavson. “We assist truckers in staying compliant. In addition to driving records, drug tests, and DOT employment screening, Corra Group now offers the PSP. This is a great report and some companies use it to train their new employment hires. PSP reports return three years of crash history and five years of roadside inspection history for any commercial driver."
Gustavson noted how many truckers are starting their own businesses. “We see friends and families partnering up and starting with a couple of trucks. Before long they are expanding operations and are working with a dozen trucks. It’s really nice to see, as it really captures the entrepreneurial spirit.”
With trucking companies all around the United States, Corra Group offers background checks and driving records for the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Trucking and transportation operators have access to drug testing facilities all over the United States. The PSP records search returns to clients in twenty four to forty eight business hours.
“We often tell our clients, “said Gustavson, “it is best to be compliant, before you face suspension.”
