Choosing a carrier to ship with can be a challenging decision with lasting implications. A shipping partner will have a considerable impact on the day-to-day operations of your business. With so much at stake, it’s important you take the time to analyze and evaluate each of your options and select the carrier that will best fulfil your organization’s capacity requirements and supply chain needs.
There is no greater and more respectable job than serving your country. It is a truly admirable devotion when people join the military. It is more than just a career – it is a lifestyle.
It’s a fact of life that people going to and from the United States by road, water or air could experience delays at the border. There is no avoiding it. It could mean minutes or even hours of a driver waiting to continue through to the final destination.
Not many people enjoy being cramped in an airplane – barely able to move for hours while impatiently waiting to land at their destination. The situation is little different for drivers since there is more room to move around in your seat but long hours of sitting can take their toll on your patience and your body.

Have you ever wondered what goes on inside an award-winning transportation company? Well, we’ve produced a video to give you a peek into our world of Bison Transport!
Assuming you are in the trucking industry since you are reading this blog post, you likely have seen tons of articles and commentary on truck platooning, self-driving trucks and autonomous trucks. It often seems like these terms are used interchangeably, but there are quite big differences.
To clarify the different terms and describe their potential impact on Bison Transport and our industry as a whole, I dove into these topics with Trevor Fridfinnson, Bison's Chief Operating Officer.
We cover a lot of information, but we focus on these questions:
- What is truck platooning?
- What is the difference between truck platooning and autonomous trucks?
- What are the 5 levels of autonomous trucks?
- How will truck platooning and autonomous trucks impact professional drivers?
There was a day when prospective drivers would call us and hang-up once they found out that we were 100% on ELDs, and had been since 2014. Those days are long behind us. Despite last minute attempts to thwart the ELD mandate, most people have accepted that ELDs are moving forward. Even ELDs are delayed, which is unlikely, many people agree that their implementation is inevitable.

Do you know the faces of trucking?
For National Trucking Week 2017, we wanted to recognize and show our appreciation for all of the amazing people that work in the trucking industry. The trucking industry is a bit of an unsung hero in the sense that many people don’t think about all of the parts involved in getting goods to their destination.
These are just a few of the many people who make sure the supply chain doesn’t break, who keep our economy strong, and make sure the things you need arrive on time and safely. Happy National Trucking Week to all professional Drivers and all of the support staff!
There are many people to thank for the success of today's trucking industry. If you know someone that is behind the wheel, turns a wrench, or works behind the scenes, thank them today for their dedication!
