ARLINGTON, Va., March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations announced HireRight, one of the world's largest providers of employee background check services, was renewed as an ATA Corporate Partner and Endorsed Featured Product provider.
"Over the past few months, ATA has focused a large share of our resources on addressing the driver shortage through several different avenues," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "One of the best ways to assist fleets as they look to hire safe, professional truck drivers is to make the hiring process more efficient.
