Simply put, when businesses invest in a product or an initiative, they expect that the profits created by the investment will outweigh the cost of the investment.

This is no different in the transportation industry.

If you take a minute to think about what options you could invest in, that could provide you substantial returns, what is it that comes to mind? New trucks? The latest software package that promises the world? Some other shiny object?

There is one thing, that may not be obvious, that will no doubt provide you with a lasting return on your investment. Most larger companies understand that investing in this one thing provides big time returns, and don’t mind the investment it takes.

And now, this type of investment is available to you…

Hello TBA!

I’d like to introduce you to the Transportation Business Academy. This new approach to providing your key personnel with critical training is something we’ve been working on for years.ROI - Golden Key on White Background. 3D Render. Business Concept. 

The Transportation Business Academy (TBA) is a solution to the problem of getting instruction and hands-on training for CSP’s / TSP’s that isn’t available anywhere else. 

It is different from our already successful current seminar offerings in that we are able to spread content out over longer periods of time, so that we can go much deeper into the various topics that need to be explored.

Benefits Of Hands-On + Testing

It combines hands-on training along with actual testing and ultimately a Certification that stays with the graduate for as long as they remain in the industry.

The benefits are numerous for the graduate, the A.O., and the company.

Benefits include:

  • Lower Driver Turnover
  • Makes Running Any Operation Easier
  • Increased Driver Productivity
  • Better Compliance
  • Fewer Equipment Breakdowns, Better Maintenance Practices
  • Fewer Accidents Resulting From Increased Safety Awareness
  • Growth Of BC’s And Drivers Into Real Leaders, Ready And Able To Run These Difficult Operations
  • Legitimate Leaders Can Then Look To Possible Future Ownership Opportunities > Ready-Made Buyers Of Spinoffs
  • And So Much More!


Situational Leadership

We are tremendously excited to offer this golden opportunity to not only our clients, but to everyone in the industry who can benefit from the experience.

leadershipAmong the course tracks is something called Situational Leadership.

It should be noted that this is the way FXG, and many other companies that rely heavily on their front line leadership, handle making sure these leaders are up to the task of leading people.

Every current and future leader (BC) should go through this training. Our instructors are certified in this type of leadership training. They have adapted the methods taught to our specific use case (transportation), and are ready to provide training that is invaluable to your business.

If you want to make changes for the betterment of your company, it starts right here with getting this time tested training accomplished.

Other Course Offerings

Most will recognize the course topics from past seminars we’ve offered. Most everyone that has ever attended will attest that it was well worth their while to come to previous offerings. 

While some of the content is similar, the amount of time spent on each topic along with hands-on technique and testing will differentiate our new approach to training from just a classroom format like before.

    • Compliance

The Missing Link

Training and Development Written on Blue Puzzle Pieces. Educational Concept.  3D Render.-1

Some will argue that online videos are good enough for training purposes. While part of the coursework will include some form of video instruction, experience has taught us that there is nothing like actual classwork, hands-on experience and then knowledge testing to make sure that fundamental concepts are truly grasped enough to then be put into practice.

We think that the Transportation Business Academy (TBA) is the missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to running a smooth, profitable operation.

Now, this opportunity is open for everyone to participate and reap the benefits!
