Mobility is an inherent element of the American character. With a nation that traverses an enitre continent, the challenge of crossing mountains, prairies and deserts is one that confronts the transportation industry on a daily basis.
It's estimated that there are approximately 160,000 miles of highway stretching across America. The need to transport goods and people across all those highways means that the transportation industry is one of the nation's largest employers.
Pre-employment screening for transportation employees is a vital tool in helping to ensure that all those tasked with transporting both people and goods are both reliable and trustworthy employees. PeopleFacts has a long history of offering employment screening for the transportation industry, partnering with companies nationwide to assist with the daunting task of screening a wide range of transportation employees--from taxi and bus drivers, to railway and trucking personnel.
As the economic recovery continues, the number of employees within the transportation sector also continues to grow.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, over the last year the trucking industry alone has seen an increase of 38,000 jobs; while increased transportation sector employment is good news, it also presents increased challenges for those responsible for conducting background checks for transportation companies.
Safety Concerns Make Transportation Background Checks Imperative
