EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Corra Group is working with trucking and transportation companies around the country to provide Motor Vehicle Driving Records to employers in need of replacement drivers. According to a recent article in JOC.com, entitled US Truck Driver Shortfall Steeper Than Expected, there are approximate 150 thousand or 4.4 percent fewer drivers since July of 2020. Much of it, the article reports, is due to the crippling economic effects of recession brought on by COVID-19.
The El Segundo, California headquartered background screening company understands there is a pressing need to get as many truckers on the road as possible in order to restore supply chains and to deliver vital goods and materials to businesses and consumers, partly as a result of escalated online ordering, which according to an article in Digital Commerce 360 has grown last year by some 44 percent.
«No doubt, there is a critical shortage of drivers,» said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. «Between digital or online shopping and economic attrition, our clients tell me that they are desperate to find more truck drivers. Some clients are looking for Department of Transportation compliant commercial drivers and some are looking for drivers who can handle the lighter vehicles, the delivery trucks and such.
«Corra Group works with trucking firms to get them Motor Vehicle Driving Records, or MVRS, in approximately sixty seconds, in most states,» said Basichis. «In addition, for those who need a variety of background checks, Corra Group can offer DOT compliant employment verifications, as well as PSP Driver Safety Reports, and criminal records searches.»
Basichis noted that with Corra Group there are no sign up and no monthly fees. He offered that Corra Group can offer driving records and comprehensive background checks in every state in the union, plus much of Canada and Puerto Rico.
«We are some time away from the proliferation of autonomous trucks,» said Basichis. «That is our future, but for now it seems a more distant part of our future, and when it does come to pass it would probably roll out in stages. Meanwhile, we need truck drivers. In normal times, they are essential. In critical times they are part of the life’s blood of this nation.»
