For the eighth year, Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and driver training company, CarriersEdge have recognized Winnipeg-based Bison Transport as one of the ‘Best Fleets to Drive For.’
Bison is among 20 for-hire trucking companies across North America that are recognized for providing exemplary work environments for their professional drivers and employees. Only four
Canadian fleets were honoured, the other three being based in Ontario.
To be considered for the Best Fleets program, companies are required to receive a nomination from at least one of its company drivers or owner-operators. They are then evaluated against a scoring matrix covering a range of categories including total compensation package, health benefits, pension plans, professional development opportunities and more.
“It's not easy to be named one of the Best Fleets to Drive For,” said John Lyboldt, TCA president. “It simultaneously requires commitment to an individual carrier's operations and a vision for the future of the industry as a whole.”
Bison has continuously demonstrated a commitment to providing an outstanding work environment for professional drivers and owner-operators.
“Our team is consistently named North America’s Safest Fleet and we credit our professional drivers with maintaining that reputation,” said Garth Pitzel, Bison Transport’s director of safety and driver development. “We are pleased to be recognized for providing a leading workplace in the trucking industry.”
