Khushvinder Choong

Khushvinder has been with Bison for the past 8 years, and has developed an excellent reputation and performance record in Fleet O10. He is highly revered by our team members and it was unanimous and appropriate to nominate him as the Driver of the Month. He is able to take on anything we task him with and consistently exceeds expectations. Going above and beyond, he stays ahead of his plans, and is able to make his own decisions confidently and correctly - the definition of a professional Driver.

Navdeep Sandhu

Navdeep ran single for Bison before switching to running team with his father. Navdeep trained his father while they worked together as Company Drivers, and has now transitioned to being an Owner-Operator, running with his father as a full team. Navdeep is professional and polite to deal with. He has also done an amazing job training his father. The communication between them, their fleet and everyone at Bison has been top notch. 

Navdeep is very flexible to work with, especially when it comes to servicing our customers. Most recently, a night Driver was required to service overnight deliveries for a Bison customer. Navdeep knew what needed to be done and was able to offer help and service the customer with on-time delivery which was not a normal move for a team.

Keep up the good work.

Bill Leichert

During the course of this month, Bill has proven himself to be a very strong team player. On numerous occasions in the last 30 days, Bill has been willing to sit and wait for loads, assist with load rescues, as well as help cover freight that is not directly in his regional contract. Bill constantly keeps his fleet team in the loop regarding his status, always asks for updates on his current moves, and stays well ahead of asking what loads we need him to cover down to the USA. Bill has been a fantastic and easy to manage Driver due to his good communication and his willingness to help out. He is happy to prioritize Bison's needs versus his own preferences.
