Cargo Transporters Cuts Driver Screening Costs With Driver iQ

Carrier reports faster turnaround times in hiring new qualified drivers


TULSA, OK – May 23, 2017 Driver iQ, the provider of comprehensive, accurate and reliable background screening and driver monitoring services to the trucking industry, today announced that Cargo Transporters, Inc. is reporting a more than 40 percent reduction in driver background screening costs.

“In our first full year using Driver iQ background screening services, our costs were 43 percent less than the last full year with our previous provider, and we increased the number of new drivers we hired,” said Shelley Dellinger Mundy, director of recruiting and retention at Cargo Transporters. “Even if the cost remained the same, we still would have made the change because the wealth of knowledge on the Driver iQ staff is incredible and we’re never in the dark about what’s going on with an application.”

Cargo Transporters, Inc., headquartered in Claremont, North Carolina, is an asset-based interstate and intrastate common and contract truckload dry van carrier operating over 500 tractors and 1,600 trailers across the continental U.S. The privately-held company, founded in 1983, serves the time sensitive, JIT and expedited shipping needs of many Fortune 100 corporations.

Driver iQ is now processing an average of 100 Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) reports for Cargo Transporters monthly and about half of the 1,200 yearly applicants are processed by Driver iQ for Previous Record of Employment (PRE), Commercial Drivers License Information (CDLIS) and criminal background checks. Driver iQ also routinely provides updates on the status of background checks and all information is integrated into an applicant tracking platform at Cargo Transporters.

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.

“With Cargo Transporters realizing 12 to 14-hour turnaround times for highly accurate background screening, we can provide the carrier with the ability to process applications and hire new drivers faster,” said Todd Hensley vice president of business development at Driver iQ. “We are pleased that they are having such great success with our comprehensive background screening services.”
