Know your weight ?
Ontario Regulations are very specific when it comes to the amount of weight your trucks can carry. In order to comply with Ontario's Weight Regulations allow our Team to assist you with measuring and weighing your fleet so you will know exactly how much you can legally carry. We have access to portable weight scales and can assist with vehicle measure ups to ensure you are in full compliance with all Ontario weight and SPIF Regulations.
Have you or one of your drivers been involved in a traffic collision or received an offence notice for a traffic violation ? Our Team has extensive experience with the Traffic Court system. We can screen your case and if it should be tested in court we can assist you. Our paralegal partners can handle the case or we can consult with your paralegals to make sure you get the best resolution in court.
Our Team has over 33 years as CVSA Inspectors and can inspect your fleet to ensure each truck and driver is in compliance with Ontario Regulations. We will assure your vehicles are up to the North American Standard set out by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA). The properly inspected trucks will stand a better chance of not being placed out of service, costing your company valuable time and money.

"We recently had the Tri-Shield team attend and deliver their roadside inspection course to our team of driver safety professionals at Day and Ross Transport. The insight and experience shared during the session was invaluable to the team. The course content was well received and is being shared with our large fleet of professional drivers!"

I used Tri-Shield to upgrade some of my knowledge that I couldn't get within my company. Patrick Martin & his team was very helpful in helping me achieve that, but also qualified me, & what would best suit my career in transportation. Now I use this information daily, Thanks Tri-Shield
Kevin Bradshaw - Professional CMV Driver
“As part of one of our bi-annual full day safety meetings we had Tri-Shield come out for half a day and do a session on truck safety with all of our staff. They covered everything we were hoping for and more. All questions were answered and everyone had nothing but positive things to say about the session. With so many questions about all the different regulations we feel our staff is now better equipped to hit the road prepared and safe! A big thanks to Pat and Alan! We will definitely have them back!”
Mark Mastantuono - Maple Hill Tree Services
I have utilized Tri-Shield for the last two years to conduct yearly training for my company. My staff found the Roadside Awareness Course very useful, and Scott, Al and Pat made them comfortable and willing to engage with the training. The knowledge my staff have learned from these courses has helped me as an owner to ensure that when my staff take a vehicle on the road, they are operating it safely.
It was also during the first course that I realized some of my vehicles
may need to be reregistered due to the weight they were carrying.
As Tri-Shield owns a set of portable scales they were able to provide me with the exact weight so I could ensure they were registered properly and that my staff had the correct licence to operate the vehicles.
As the I have found the training so beneficial for the staff, I will be having Tri-Shield back again this year.
