New Truck Depot Yard Build Fairview Oregon

New Truck Depot Yard in Fairview Oregon

23012 NE Sandy Blvd Fairview OR 97024

New Truck Depot Yard in Fairview! Yes, this is a short but to the point post for all of us on the Truck Depot team. We have been able to break ground and will soon be able to park trucks, trailers, and even heavy equipment all looking for a safe place to park. We are going to be able to offer both long term and short term parking to owner operators and truck fleet managers. As is with our yard just one mile east on the same Sandy Blvd, our yard will be fully fenced and have secured entry and exit gates. The yard will be fully monitored by night vision cameras. The differences will be that we will have the newest state of the art camera system that will allow drivers better functioning and security. We will also have a new addition to the truck depot family of products on this site and that will be long term storage containers fully secured similar to home and rv storage units.

Now the differences for the first year here will be that we will not have a warehouse to offer cross docking on site. With that said, we will be offering continuing cross docking services one mile away at our original location while we finish the design and begin the building of a new state of the art warehouse, truck repair facility, and drivers lounge. We are also already operating a cross docking and storage facility in Tacoma Washington by the name of Tacoma Warehouse and Storage. We are working on a package deal next door to our tacoma warehouse and storage facility at 5655 8th ST E Fife WA 98424 that would allow us up to thirty acres of truck parking! that is right across the road from the port of Tacoma. 

So, keep your eyes and ears open for our next and newest location. Also ask us for specials for existing customers.So in case you are in Portland, Gresham, Fairview, Vancouver, or anywhere in the metro portland Vancouver area and are looking for a safe, secure, and business friendly place to park your truck or trailer or RV or heavy equipment think of The Truck Depot.

Truckers protest in New York, Chicago, and California ELD & Truck Parking!

Truckers protest in New York, Chicago, and California ELD & Truck Parking!

Truckers Protest in New York city, Chicago, and California Two days ago. Friday April 12th 2019, many truck drivers took to the street in manhattan and to the freeways in Chicago to protest the increased regulations for the hours of service and the need for increased truck parking facilities across the united states. Honking of air horns and the examples of slow traffic that simulated the congestion of traffic and the slow down in the economy that would be felt if trucking continues to be ignored as it touches every life in the world. 

With the hours of service laws summary being as follows: “Summary of Hours of Service Regulations. The following table summarizes the HOS regulations for property-carrying and passenger-carrying drivers. May drive a maximum of 11 hours after 10 consecutive hours off duty. … A driver may restart a 7/8 consecutive day period after taking 34 or more consecutive hours off duty.” The ELD (Electronic Logging Device) electronically logs every single action and movement and lack of movement of the trucks. For the non driving public this may seem like nothing but good. What if you were at your job in an office like maybe an accountant, and at the end of an eight hour day during the tax season you were given an electric shock if you had to work a little bit just to get your customers taxes submitted before they would get a fine? Well i can assure you that i would not like it at all being shocked. I would also not be in business or at least not be able to grow my business or get a promotion if i lost clients due to the fact that they get fined for their taxes not being filed in time.

This is similar to how drivers feel as they or told they only have a short window of time to do such a huge job and then even if they have the time to get the work done they are spending/wasting hours just looking for a place to park safely to meet the hours of service laws. With the epidemic of the lack of truck parking facilities the laws just are that much more difficult to follow and survive.

Truck Depot LLC coming out with Truck Parking DIY product!

DIY Truck Parking Business Package

DIY Truck Parking Package. Estimated product release is to be announced but no later than the end of April 2019. Truck depot llc is the only exclusive truck parking corporation that focuses solely on secured truck parking facilities currently cross the Pacific Northwest. We will be offering our newest DIY package for helping individual land owners and business owners alike that are looking to enhance or develop a business in the truck parking space.

We were constantly being approached by business individuals that had either an existing business like a small mom and pop truck stop or repair services business in the trucking space that realized the huge demand and need for truck parking across the nation but realty did not know what the best steps were to start a truck parking lot. The truck depot has been in the business for seven years and we have learned from all of our bumps and bruises what some of the best ways are to build an effective and successful truck parking facility for the business owners and the truck owners as well. We decided it would be in the best interest of all included to create a product that could be purchased that would walk someone through every single step to building, marketing, and growing a truck parking business successfully.

Customers will be guided from start to finish and beyond, if they choose, every step it takes to build a parking lot for the truck industry. As part of the package truck depot llc will plan out the best geometrically planned yard configuration for the induvial case to optimize parking, the package will include the entry and exit gate advice, yard enclosures, cctv cameras, advanced technologies that will automate operations, as well as a multitude of ways to market and grow the business.

We work in a one of a kind business and we realized that it would be better to help the industry of trucking to increase the amount of parking facilities by helping individual owners build their business that to wait the years it would take for one corporation to grow across the united states. There are many technology devices and apps working to help drivers find spaces to park but it still comes down to the need for those pieces of land to exist and not yet another mobile app to remind drivers that there is a need.

We will be rolling this product out before the end of April 2019.

Truck Depot LLC Team part of Oregon DOT Truck Parking Study April 1st 2019

Advisors to the oregon Department of Transportation Truck Parking Study 2019!

That is correct. We have been invited to be part of the ODOT Truck Parking Study for 2019. We are sharing information and ideas on behalf of the trucking and logistics industry and the community in order to help and advise the state on what will help and the potential and realistic ways to produce something helpful for trucks and the companies that work in the logistics world. We are part of a important group of companies, owner operators, trucking company owners, and industry leaders that rely daily on the trucking industry.

We have been working with ODOT since late 2018 when we reached out to them to begin a discussion regarding truck parking, the dangers of the lack of parking, and the possible ways in which a private public partnership would work to create solutions for the crisis. We are excited to be part of this historic move for ODOT and we would like to thank the state and the companies and drivers that are willing to take part in this in order to come up with some real world solutions by 2020. 

Admittedly this will not be some overnight fix or miracle cure to the parking crisis. For those of us in the industry, we all know this is going to take some time as this is not something that just became an issue overnight. With that said, at least ODOT is coming to the table and including industry experts and participants alike to give input and some guidance to their study which will be used to decide where to place funds that will do the most with the amount of federal and state funds and how to work with private industry to get things actually done.

The first meetings begin on April 1st 2019. We will be posting on our blog our take on the meeting and what we honestly think the future holds as we all move forward.

The Trucking Crisis by Glenn Beck Video

The Trucking Crisis Video

The Trucking Crisis is a great video that we found that was produced by Glenn Beck. He talks about the trucking crisis and how it has a direct and indirect effect on every one of us in the United States. We need to look at this information and consider how are we going to live without trucking and the fixes that need to be made in order to continue the delivery of goods. We need to see better wages and better, safer conditions for drivers. We are directly involved in this crisis by trying to supply truck parking for drivers that is safe and affordable across the nation. Truck Depot LLC wants to become the Mcdonalds of the truck parking industry. We want drivers to be able to park, rest, relax, meet the federal laws for driving, and be physically safe while doing that. We want driver to know that no matter where they are driving when they see a truck depot llc sign that they will be assured of the same safety and quality no matter where they are.

So go ahead and check out the replaying of Glenn Beck and share with someone you know or even with your state reps about the need for a working partnership of state, federal, and private industries working together to create more safe environments for drivers thus allowing society to get the supplies needed for daily life.
