What We Do, How We Do It

Too often, companies use a piecemeal approach when it comes to screening drivers. They might use one vendor to help recruit. Another to screen. And still, another to address the complex world that is compliance. This approach is inefficient, expensive, and redundant. Not to mention, it makes it too easy for things to fall through the cracks.

At Foley, we've built a company that effortlessly manages these three areas under one roof: recruit, screen, comply.
