Helping Make the Transportation Industry Safer for over 40 Years!
Operating since 1962 as part of a driver training company, TRANS 360, Inc. was incorporated in Oregon in 1972 to address the special training needs of the motor transportation industry. Our aim is to enhance the knowledge, awareness and skills of the operators of these vehicles. TRANS 360's services enhance fleet operations by training professional drivers, maintenance and management personnel
The Purpose of TRANS 360...
...is providing our customers with the most thorough, result-oriented evaluation service available. We are committed to excellence in evaluation, training and consultation thereby having a significant impact on the health and viability of both the public and the transportation industry.
TRANS 360 was formed over 40 years ago to assist the transportation industry through development of safety training programs, driver training programs, cost reduction and collision rate reduction programs, and overall safety in driving programs. Our staff combines over 100 years of experience in corporate management, maintenance, and operations.
What we can do for you...
Compliance and escalating operating and collision costs continue to be a major challenge for all fleet and safety managers. TRANS 360 can help you find ways to:
- Operate your fleet more efficiently and safely
- Extend the life of your equipment
- Manage your risk exposure and costs.
What you get for the training investment?
The main objective is to improve overall safe and efficient operation of your drivers. Some of the specific items covered include; vehicle inspection, basic air brake system, includes the driver required checks, safe driving techniques and correct engine / transmission operation. The air brake system session is both classroom and hands on. This is all wrapped together with safety and efficiency. It is our belief if the driver does not understand basic brake, transmission and engine operation, how they can begin to drive safely.
Over the past 25 years, we have provided tailored programs to various types of trucking companies, OEMs (Kenworth, Peterbilt, and Freightliner), Utilities, Sand & Gravel, and government agencies.
In 1986 we developed and copyrighted one of the most comprehensive driver evaluation software programs available. We recently launched the 3rd generation of this product called CheckRide360©. www.CheckRide360.com
We have developed over 7 market specific Safety Six defensive driving programs and a variety of CDL Plus Programs. Some of these programs are both Trainer Lead and online web based.
TRANS 360 contracted with the states of ID, OR, WA, to initiate their training programs for CDL Examiners.
TRANS 360 also provides consultation / expert testimony with a variety of State Attorney General Offices and attorneys in post-crash cases.
