Wes Curtis, Owner

I started with the California Highway Patrol in 1974 and worked throughout the State. In 1989 I went through Commercial Enforcement Training and began working with the Trucking Industry.

In 1999 I became a full time Commercial Officer assigned as a Mobile Road Enforcement Officer servicing Humboldt, Trinity, DelNorte and Siskiyou Counties.

My employment with the CHP afforded me the best Commercial Trucking Industry training available, and in time I became an instructor for the Commercial Program myself.

I was certified in all aspects of commercial enforcement at the State and Federal levels.

Now I am on the other side of the fence, representing the motor carriers and helping them comply with both State and Federal regulations. Because of my vast experience and expertise in the commercial trucking industry, I am in a unique position to help you with the never-ending and sometimes confusing task of navigating the numerous State and Federal regulations involved in the Commercial Trucking Industry.
