HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The U.S. trucking industry is facing a driver shortage and On the Move Systems, Inc. (OMVS) has developed a pioneering new "Uber for trucking" platform that could help carriers find the people they need behind the wheel.
Image is a major problem confronting the industry and keeps many potential driver candidates away. Prospective drivers often do not see trucking as a career with solid long-term job security or advancement opportunities.
One suggestion has been for trucking to improve its image with better branding. The idea is to make trucking an industry people want to work for and stay with. However, even with better branding, trucking industry recruiters have been limited in how they can reach potential recruits. With limited ways to spread the word to prospective drivers, companies are missing out on many potentially valuable employees.
“Our innovative shared economy platform can provide a quick, effective way for truckers, recruiters and driver candidates who want to work to connect online,” said OMVS CEO Robert Wilson. “Trucking companies are facing higher costs because of increased driver turnover. Giving the companies, recruiters and drivers an app to connect them in one place will greatly increase each company's exposure in the employment marketplace and help them find candidates who will stay long-term, cutting costly turnover.”
In addition, OMVS’s versatile platform will enable larger trucking companies to locate and contact local, independent haulers who they can contract with, making their shorter runs more efficient and cost-effective.
OMVS has enjoyed recent success as it continues to build its roster of trucking partners interested in joining the cutting-edge platform.
