However, the Department of Safety did say that search warrants were issued for the Department of Safety's part-time drivers' license center, which is located at the Swift facility.

The Department of Safety said it has temporarily suspended issuing commercial drivers' licenses to truck drivers at the Memphis Swift Transportation location until the fbi investigation is complete.

Memphis is the hub for Swift Transportation and is open 24 hours a day. All night travel for Swift truckers across the country is monitored there.

According to the company's web site, Swift also owns a Mexican based carrier called Nuevo Laredo and offers crossing services at all major Mexican border check points.

The company also makes deliveries to every Canadian province.

In addition to the FBI investigation, a number of other agencies are working with the FBI, including immigration and customs.

He is 1005 Right.
I know this for fact as that I am the one who
turned in Swift for giving out CDL Class A's to people who were under the influences of Anti-Psychotic Drugs and to other persons who were
not legally able to obtain a CDL in this Country because they were from Countries on our Governments Terrorist Watch List.

Not soap boxen.

Just elling the truth.

Can you handle it?

Or don't you tell the truth?

I'm the Swift driver who told the truth about Swift and I have not been able to work since.

SWift will not obey the Law and put me back to work.

I need a job driving truck again.

Any Honest Trucking Companies out there that would hire me right now.

In response to #6 ... yep, me too, and a whole lot of other drivers besides me got letters from the DMV in our home states suspending our CDL licenses in 30 days unless we re-test written and road tests and pay all the fees again. I'm wondering if there is going to be a class action suit against Swift to collect for these damages. None of us works for Swift anymore, and many of us have stopped paying Swift back for the tuition fee for training us once this whole investigation began some months ago and the authorities closed down Swift's DMV in Millington, Tennessee. If anyone knows of any such class action suits, please let me know. I'll be watching this board.
Thanks.

Tootalltom.....a friend of mine in Michigan is contacting a lawyer there about getting a class action lawsuit. I'm in Arkansas and they are giving me till May 20 to comply or mine will be suspended. Atleast i have time to study some since i got my CDL just after the May 2005 notice that Arkansas put out in my letter.

Sorry about the anonymous proxy server, it's not my computer or internet service. You folks are getting the shaft and then some. Have you taken this to the news media? May I suggest either CNN's Lou Dobbs or FOX Glenn Beck? An attorney will suck what life you have left out of you. I learned the hard way. Maybe if the news picks up this story an attorney will come on board pro bono. Everything's worth a try and good luck drivers.
