Truckers notified of Altegrity Inc.'s Chapter 11 bankruptcy plans

By Clarissa Hawes, Land Line staff writer | 4/13/2015

Some truck drivers say they are confused as to why they are receiving notifications from the U.S. District Court in Delaware as part of Altegrity Inc.’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition filed on Feb. 8.

Altegrity, a risk management and security company, has 37 affiliated companies, including HireRight, a background screening service that many trucking companies use to vet potential drivers. Those who have been vetted by HireRight, formerly DAC Services, may be among those who receive these notifications from the court about an upcoming disclosure statement hearing set for May 5.

Altegrity also owns US Investigations Services, or USIS, which will be liquidated as part of the bankruptcy filing after losing key federal background check contracts. USIS is responsible for vetting Edward Snowden, a National Security Agency contractor, as well as Aaron Alexis, a government contractor responsible for killing 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard in 2013.

OOIDA’s Business Services Department said members started calling the Association in early April after they received the notification about Altegrity’s bankruptcy proceedings, but the members didn’t have an explanation for why they were receiving the letters.

Altegrity declined to comment on the company’s reorganization plan.
