Using knowledge and experience from both Policing and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO), Andrew Pouliot and James Gillespie have formed Dynamic Transport Solutions, based out of Ottawa, Ontario. We are one of the only companies in Ontario that can offer two different law enforcement perspectives, each comprising of significant value to our clients. Our primary goal is to assist carriers, by helping them understand the various Provincial and Federal legislation they are required to comply with.
Andrew spent seven years as a Constable with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). During his time with the OPP, Andrew had worked as the lead investigator for collisions, including ones involving Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV’s). He has an extensive knowledge base of the Highway Traffic Act and how it pertains to the operation of CMV’s in Ontario. Andrew spent countless hours in the court room as an investigating officer and witness to vehicle offences, including charges laid under the Criminal Code of Canada and Provincial Acts and Regulations. His vast understanding of courtroom procedures and the Ontario/Canadian legal process is second to none. Andrew also has a vast understanding on how the MTO assigns Commercial Vehicle Operator Registration points (CVOR points) to carriers after a collision occurs. Andrew plays a pivotal role during a Carrier Safety Risk Analysis, where he will look in depth to ensure all points on a carrier’s CVOR abstract are appropriate and accurate.
James spent over ten years working for the Province of Ontario in law enforcement, including 7 years with the MTO as a Transportation Enforcement Officer. While working as a Transportation Enforcement Officer, he worked in several different enforcement districts throughout Southern and Eastern Ontario, including the GTA. He had the opportunity to gain some experience working out of a truck inspection station but primarily spent his time completing on road enforcement. James brings a wealth of knowledge relating to the safe operation of commercial vehicles in Ontario and other jurisdictions throughout North America. Enforcing primarily the Highway Traffic Act and Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, he gained valuable knowledge of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, Cargo Securement, Weights and Dimensions, Hours of Service and the CVOR system.
