When I first heard about the Women in Trucking (WIT) Image Team I thought it would be a great opportunity for females to be represented in the transportation industry. When I was nominated on behalf of Bison to be part of the team, I was excited but a little unsure.
Volvo's Paul Kudla joins us for a sneak peek at what the company is working on for the trucking industry. The video below highlights the innovation, truck technology, regulation, electric engines, performance and safety.
ELDs are a hot topic in the trucking industry. While it seems like ancient history to us here at Bison because we have had 100 per cent of our fleet on ELDs since 2014, for many drivers and carriers ELDs are still new.
We are proud to have been one of the top corporate fundraisers over the past few years for Challenge For Life. In 2017, 114 Bison employees and family members registered to either “Walk It” for 20 km or “Work It” for 200 minutes. The Blazing Bison team raised $162,000 through corporate fundraising, personal initiatives and our fundraising barbecue.
In our continuing series called Meet the Herd, we bring you inside the Bison offices and showcase the talented folks who make a difference to our clients and our team. They are the faces you see behind the wheel of our trucks and the voices on the front lines communicating with clients and our Drivers.
Met with a lot of excitement, the Volvo VNL 760s have been in design for five years and the first have started rolling into Bison's shops to be inspected, decalled, licenced and readied for the road.
We are super proud of how our people consistently step up and contribute to their neighbourhood and communities!

Driver-less trucks. Really? My new mantra these days when technology fails me (which is often) is, “…and this is why there will be no driver-less trucks in the foreseeable future.”
