Corra group helps keep trucking, transportation companies DOT compliant

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Corra Group is assisting trucking and transportation companies with their U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) compliance needs by offering both a la carte and batch files for the company’s annual motor vehicle driving records requirements.

The El Segundo, California, headquartered background checking service can deliver driving records for every state in the union, plus Canada and Puerto Rico.

“It is essential that trucking and transportation companies meet all Department of Transportation compliance mandates,” Corra Group Co-Founder Nick Gustavson said. “This standard is vital at a time when there is a driving shortage and trucking groups are struggling to find new drivers and to keep their current drivers compliant and on the road.

Gustavson said Corra Group offers batch file uploads of minimum 50 drivers.

“The driving records return in less than a 48-hour turnaround,” he said. “Employers also have the option of ordering MVRS individually, at which point for most states they return in about 60 seconds.”

Gustavson underlined that Corra Group offers driver PSP driver safety reports as well as CDLIS, criminal records searches and DOT employment verification. He noted that clients can request custom trucking packages in any way they see fit.

He added that some of the services are necessary for DOT compliance, while some are elective background checks.

“Clients simply upload to us a spreadsheet containing the required information in order to conduct batch file motor vehicle driving records,” Gustavson said. “Clients will provide release forms for each driver Corra Group is checking, and that’s about it. In 24 to 48 hours, the driving records are returned to clients. For those companies with less than fifty drivers, they are free to order each record individually. It’s a simple process and turnaround is very fast in most states.”
