Harjit Singh

Harjit is just a stand out person and a great Driver! He simply loves to drive, loves working for Bison, and shows everyone he is in contact with tremendous amounts of respect. He is always willing to go above and beyond for us even if it’s not a great plan for him. Harjit understands that he needs to take some bumps along the way. I see Harjit becoming one of our greatest Drivers.

Central

Emmanuel Dechagai

Emmanuel has the type of spirit everyone wants in a Driver. He sought out the R2 fleet as he wanted the responsibility of hauling reefers and completing meat inspections. He understands the importance of these types of loads. He never hesitates to help out when needed and is flexible with the demands of the job. He builds great working relationships and volunteers in the community. He recently was asked to complete a switch to help another Driver get home for an important appointment, and the switch would result in Emmanuel being on the road much longer than planned. Emmanuel did not hesitate and answered "We are a team -  no problem!"

West

Balwinder Kaler

The West Turnpike team all knows that Balwinder is a hard working Driver and likes his miles. He has worked a lot of extra days and will go anywhere he is needed to, including Winnipeg or Langley. He keeps our freight moving for our customers and will even start in the morning or afternoon as necessary.

For the previous 3 months he has achieved the highest miles on fleet ABT1, which isn’t really shocking. What is shocking is by how much…just over 8,000 miles!  (July  = 14,268, Aug = 12,045, Sept = 12,746). This was all done while maintaining a low safety rating and maintaining zero service failures

Balwinder deserves to be awarded Driver of the Month as the ABT1 team greatly appreciates his efforts.

  • MARIE GAUTHIER
