Press Release Summary = Foreign truckers from Australia to relieve shortage hurting industry
Press Release Body = Look to the future with foreign truckers...
Over the last 6 years the "retention" and "shortage" of truckers has been written about a zillion times. America's population is growing but the want to be a trucker is not.
Across the world there are thousands of experienced truckers that would love to join the industry in America.
Truckers that crave to come to the USA include Australia, New Zealand, England, Jamaica, the Philippines to name a few. Good English speaking OTR drivers. They drive the same trucks, on similar roads, and have the same DOT rules governing logs, hours, drugs etc.
The drivers want to relocate to the USA. They are willing to pay all the Government fees etc to get their immigrant visa, and they are happy to commit to a minimum of 2 years with their employer (sponsor). Any trucking employer can bring experienced truckers to the USA and not have their tractor units parked up.
Most foreign drivers have only had 1 or 2 employers in 5 years. They are stable individuals with good worth ethics.
The program is available, but underutilized by the transport industry. It is not a quick process, yet the long term benefits out way the hassle of the processing. If you sponsored 50 truckers this year and it took 2 years to get them across to you, in 2 years time that's 50 trucks filled.
The U.S Immigration service has already approved drivers from these countries this year. The approved drivers will wait for their number to come up in the queue, and then they will pack up and move permanently with their wife and children to the employers location.
It's a win win situation and should be used now, so in the future you have the drivers you need.
The only web site offering the service to trucking companies is www.greencardsforamerica.net Not a fly by night organization, this company has been working with US employers bringing over truckers since 1999. The company Truckers For USA, Inc began bringing over drivers using the temporary visa program where the truckers worked for the employer for 10 months at a time. That visa category is so short on visas each year, as the visas mainly go to the Resorts, Construction etc that they began doing the permanent program for truckers.
