WINNIPEG, Man. — Dennis Barkman, a 27-year truck driving veteran with a diverse background, was named the 2009 Manitoba Driver of the Year.

 

Barkman has driven long-haul for Penner International for much of his career. However, he started out as a farmer in rural Manitoba, then drove a cement mixer, then a feed truck, then a local delivery truck and then a lumber truck during his lengthy career. He settled on long-haul nearly 20 years ago and has spent the majority of his trucking career running highway.

 

Barkman has a clean abstract and safety record and has received many “compliments of driving skill and courtesy” via the DriverCheck monitoring system.

 

Jac Doerksen, driver relations and O/O business development manager with Penner International, said Barkman “continues to strive for excellence with safe and on-time delivery” and “consistently maintains a great attitude.”

 

The Manitoba Driver of the Year award is sponsored by Volvo Trucks Canada and awarded by the Manitoba Trucking Association.
