"I think that there is a shift within the transportation industry,"  said Travis Overton, "The carriers that recognize the need for seasoned and skilled recruiters are the ones getting ahead. I believe that the driver recruiter is the single most important piece of the recruiting puzzle. They have the ability to stretch your advertising budget further and ultimately decrease your marketing spend.   At CUB Ventures, holistically, we know that we cannot   achieve successful results for our clients without having deep insights and product offerings serving the driver recruitment process."

"Our combined efforts are something that this industry has never seen,"
 said Charles Gracey, "Never before have carriers had the ability for a vendor to offer a full-service approach with industry-leading experience in both the lead generation and recruiting sectors of the driver-recruiting category. Whether it's lead generation management, technology development, or recruiting, we can cover it all, and all in one spot."

Combining the expert lead generation, brand management, and content creation offerings throughout CUB Ventures' existing subsidiaries with Hot Seat Services' deep experience in the recruiting realm will revolutionize driver recruitment strategy and performance throughout the trucking industry.
