Recruiting, hiring and retaining qualified drivers is a critical problem for the trucking industry. The American Trucking Associations reports that there is a shortage of 50,000 truck drivers to meet the needs of the freight business. If the trend continues, it is estimated the shortage will reach 174,000 unfilled driver positions by 2026.

DriverReach’s recruiting management system focuses on a better applicant experience to and streamline the hiring process.

“Part of our mission is to serve the trucking industry and improve our carriers’ profitability,” said ATA President Shannon Newton. “Our endorsed partners help support this effort. DriverReach is a great example of how we can work together to make the industry more efficient and profitable. The driver shortage is impacting all of our carriers and this partnership can help member companies gain an edge in the onboarding process.”

“Working with state associations like the ATA isn’t negotiable for us,” said CEO of DriverReach, Jeremy Reymer. “We know that carriers that belong to state associations are more progressive and want innovative solutions at their fingertips. In order to help these carriers lead the industry, the ATA is an essential partner in introducing our solution to Arkansas companies.”
