SASKATOON, Sask. –The Saskatchewan Trucking Association (STA) held its Annual General Meeting Oct. 16 and took the opportunity to honour some of its own.
Henry Thiessen, owner of T&T Trucking, was presented with the Service to Industry Award, sponsored by Shaw Tracking. Thiessen has more than 40 years experience in the trucking industry and the STA says he has achieved success thanks to his “decision to build the company on long-term contracts pledging commitment to customer service along with a hands-on approach to management.”
Driver Harvey Gording of Regina, Sask. was presented with the Volvo Trucks Canada-sponsored Driver of the Year award. Gording works for Reimer Express and routinely shows well during provincial and national truck driving championships.
Frontier Peterbilt sponsored the Dispatcher of the Year award, which went to Robert Funk of Q-Line Transport.
“Building and maintaining a successful company like T&T Trucking is no small feat. Henry’s reputation is one of hard work and fairness,” said STA president Glen Ertell, who also had kind words for Gording and Funk. “And both Reimer and Q-Line are fortunate to have great role models like Harv and Robert. These three men are worthy of our industry’s gratitude.”
