GRT Transportation Reveals Savings With Driver iQ

 Carrier eliminates revenue loss by filling empty seats with qualified drivers faster


 TULSA, OK – March 23, 2017 -- Driver iQ, providers of comprehensive and reliable background screening and driver monitoring services to the trucking industry, today announced that GRT Transportation is eliminating revenue loss by filling empty seats with qualified drivers faster than ever before.

“For every idle truck per week, we lose about $1,200 plus the cost of recruiting and onboarding a new driver,” said Alexia Guarneros, Training & Development at GRT Transportation. “The advantage of Driver iQ is that it enables us to hire and on board drivers much faster. Driver iQ also saves management time and helps us identify qualified drivers more effectively. When you add it all up, the value of Driver iQ to our operation is priceless.”

Founded in 2011 with four trucks, GRT Transportation now operates 194 tractors from three terminals. Headquartered in Laredo, Texas, the long haul, regional, dedicated and expedited truckload carrier also offers brokerage, warehousing and supply chain management services.

GRT Transportation uses Driver iQ comprehensive background screening services to qualify drivers. The carrier now processes about 20 drivers per week through Driver iQ, including Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) reports for all applicants and Previous Report of Employment reports for some drivers. Also checked are Commercial Drivers License Information (CDLIS) and criminal backgrounds.

“Filling empty seats with qualified drivers and using administrative time and resources effectively and productively are important to all carriers,” said Todd Hensley VP Business Development at Driver iQ. “We are pleased that our comprehensive, accurate and reliable background screening services are providing those savings to GRT Transportation.”
