WINNIPEG, Man. – The Manitoba Trucking Association and Volvo Trucks Canada named the winner of the 2014 Manitoba Driver of the Year Award this week, and James McKibbon of Trappers Transport came out on top.
The Driver of the Year is announced every year and is selected from those who received the Industry Excellence Award the previous year. Winners are chosen based on their commitment, safety and outstanding acts.
McKibbon has been driving for more than three decades with no accidents and frequently goes above and beyond his duties.
His employer speaks highly of him, saying: “James has received commendations from Trappers customers for his cooperation and ability to exceed expectations on a regular basis.”
Since McKibbon won the provincial Driver of the Year award, he is eligible to for the CTA/Volvo Trucks Canada National Driver of the Year award.
