It is well known, that hiring long-haul driving in the United States is not an easy job. Recruiters use to social media, driving schools, job fairs, and traditional methods like tv, radio and newspapers, but the shortage continues to be an issue throughout the United States. In the past decade, trucking companies have turned to Mexico, and other countries to bring truck drivers on temporary or seasonal work visas, and in some cases, drivers can qualify to obtain permanent resident status in the United States.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the only foreign commercial driver licenses (CDLs) that are accepted in the United States are from the federal government of Mexico and provinces and territories in Canada. The United States has CDL reciprocity agreements with only these two North American countries. In rare instances, FMCSA may issue temporary waivers (up to 90 days) or exemptions (up to two years) to allow drivers licensed in other countries to operate in the United States. These drivers are required to carry the waiver or exemption document with them.
On the positive side, hiring drivers from Mexico can alleviate the shortage of drivers in the United States and can reduce costs of labor in the supply chain. On the negative side, it is very difficult to know who you are hiring.
