American Central Transport Reports Savings With Driver iQ
Carrier eliminates staffing costs and is processing qualified drivers faster with background screening services
TULSA, OK – April 11, 2017 -- Driver iQ, the provider of comprehensive, accurate and reliable background screening and driver monitoring services to the trucking industry, today announced that American Central Transport is lowering administrative and driver recruiting costs.
“With Driver iQ, we can process applicants faster and more accurately with less staff, saving us over $30,000 annually,” said Josh Mecca, recruiting director at American Central Transport. “By efficiently identifying candidates who meet our high standards, we have been able to increase our average class size by an additional two to three drivers per week, which means in many cases we’re no longer spending approximately $2,700 to onboard a driver. These savings are all compounded by the fact that our fleet has grown by over 40 trucks in six months. In the end, with Driver iQ we can put more drivers in our trucks faster so we can haul more freight, which ultimately raises revenue and boosts profitability.”
American Central Transport, based in Liberty, Missouri, is a dry van full truckload carrier operating in the Midwest and Southeastern U.S. The company operates a fully seated fleet of 330 tractors.
American Central Transport switched from another provider and began using Driver iQ background screening and employment verification services over a year ago. Today Driver iQ provides Criminal Background checks, Previous Report of Employment (PRE), Commercial Driver’s License Information (CDLIS), Social Security checks, and Employment Verification Release forms for American Central Transport.
Driver iQ provides comprehensive, accurate and reliable background screening and driver monitoring services. The company maintains the trucking industry’s most up to date, detailed and actionable driver employment database. Carrier customers are granted access to employment verification, driving records, criminal record searches, and ongoing driver monitoring at rates considered the lowest in the industry, and are able to store driver employment records in the Driver iQ database at no cost.
“We are very pleased that American Central Transport is finding that it can process driver applications and hire qualified applicants faster and with less administrative staff by using our services,” said Todd Hensley VP Business Development at Driver iQ. “We look forward to continuing to provide them with our comprehensive, accurate and reliable background screening services.”
