WINNIPEG, Man. — Today, Bison Transport announced an accomplishment few fleets have managed. Over the last year, the company’s drivers have earned Driver of the Year awards at a provincial, national and international level.

Mark Tricco, who has 33 years of accident-free driving under his belt, won the Manitoba Driver of the Year award presented by the Manitoba Trucking Association- Volvo Trucks Canada.

Rob Wells was named the National Driver of the Year by the Canadian Trucking Alliance and Volvo Canada. Winners of this contest drive safely, give back to their communities and enrich the image of the trucking industry.

Jack Fielding was the North American Driver of the Year in the Truckload Carriers Association’s Company Driver of the Year contest. Winners of this award enhance the public view of the industry, contribute to their communities and operate safely on the road.

“We are extremely proud to have three of our drivers honoured as the best of the best on the provincial, national and international stage. Mark, Robert and Jack exemplify safety and professionalism and we truly appreciate their leadership and commitment to us and our industry,” said Rob Penner, executive vice-president and COO of Bison in a release. “ I have a deep respect for all professional drivers and know there are many vying for and deserving of this recognition. To have three of our own represented at all levels of trucking in one year speaks volumes about the culture and environment we have built in collaboration with our professional drivers here at Bison.”
