We are proud of our people for their lead role in safe practices and management, especially our professional Drivers who play a major role in road safety,” says Garth Pitzel, Director, Safety and Driver Development. Bison Transport has long been recognized as ‘the safest fleet in North America’ and has garnered itself with a substantial list of safety awards, including the Truckload Carriers Association’s National Fleet Safety Grand Prize Award for the eighth time.
