Americas Highways Are Full Of Diversity
Like many other industries, America's truckers have evolved to be multilingual, and their genetic makeup has become multinational. As a trucker in the auto transportation industry, I have the opportunity to speak with many truckers every day. I can assure you that each trucker with whom I speak is likely to be of a different nationality than the one I just spoke to.
English, like many Americans, is not always the native language of truckers. Therefore, it is common for them to use English with an accent. The same holds true for me as I speak with daily customers. Things can quickly get complicated when you add in something unfamiliar like auto transporting.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has made it mandatory that truckers "read and speak English sufficiently to understand highway signals and traffic signals, directions given in English, and to respond to official inquires." But history shows us that second language accents are unlikely to disappear anytime soon. Language barriers can cause frustration and create unnecessary complications. The last thing you want when organizing your vehicle's transportation across the country is miscommunication.
When there is a language barrier, how can you help customers who need vehicle transport services and truckers who are willing to meet this need? An experienced, well-diversified auto transport company is a great asset.
Move Car Auto Transport was an amazing place to work. It is a refreshing change to be able to work in such a diverse environment. This benefit was immediately apparent to me and it is a huge advantage for both truckers and customers. All of our employees speak 11 languages fluently, across all levels. I've seen firsthand the tension that can arise when something is mistranslated between truckers and customers. This problem can be quickly solved by customer service agents who are able to remove the language barrier.
Auto transport companies can bridge language gaps and provide valuable service in America's melting pot. Move Car, an auto transport company that accepts native languages from all walks of life, is available to you regardless of whether English is your first language.
