MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Bison Transport has won a pair of awards from Walmart Canada: the Overall Store Delivery Carrier of the Year award and the Shining Star Award. Bison was recognized at the Annual Walmart Canada Carrier Awards banquet in Mississauga Jan. 20.

Bison won the Overall Store Delivery Carrier of the Year award for its on-time performance, commitment to excellence, innovative approach, and customer service, according to officials. Bison’s on-time performance for Walmart Canada in 2011 was in excess of 99%, handling deliveries of general merchandise, groceries, and perishable food items to Walmart stores across Canada.

The inaugural Shining Star Award was given to Bison’s recently-appointed vice-president of central operations, Steve Zokvic. He was selected by Walmart as the key person amongst all its carriers’ staff members who stood out as having provided them with the overall best customer service.

“It is such an honour to be recognized by our longstanding partner, Walmart Canada, for the work we do and this award is shared amongst the many individuals at Bison who take pride in doing the right things to service our clients,” said Jeff Pries, Bison’s vice-president of sales and marketing.
