LAS VEGAS, NV – Just one year after winning National Driver of the Year through Volvo Canada and the Canadian Trucking Alliance, Mark Tricco of Bison Transport is in the spotlight again, this time winning the Truckload Carriers Association’s 2015 Owner/Operator of the Year Award.
Tricco has been with Bison for 20 years and on the road for 15 more. He said during his award acceptance speech to the Vegas crowd that he’s “enjoyed every mile with them.” More than four million of those miles have been accident-free for the celebrated member of Bison’s Driver Advisory Board.
Tricco told the crowd that he couldn’t have had such a successful career without all the great dispatchers, fleet managers and safety managers that have helped him along the way.
The Company Driver of the Year Award went to Danny Smith of Big G Express, based out of Shelbyville, TN. Smith has driven close to three million accident-free miles over the last 35 years.
Grand prize winners took home a cheque for a cool $25,000.
