Bison Transport arranges for the purchase and transport of thousands of wreaths for the WAC ceremonies in Manitoba and Ottawa.

Wreaths Across Canada (WAC) has an important mission: Remember – Honour – Teach. Each year on the first Sunday of December, WAC organizes the placing of wreaths of remembrance on the headstones of thousands of military veterans in military cemeteries across the country.

Bison Transport is a proud supporter of Wreaths Across Canada. Bison’s President, Rob Penner, got involved with the organization a few years ago, championing the inaugural Manitoba service at the Field of Honour at Brookside Cemetery in Winnipeg. Since then, Bison has been arranging for the purchase and transport of wreaths that are placed on our fallen military personnel’s headstones. Read more ›

Bison is adding 40 new Freightliner Ultralight tractors to our fleet, benefitting both our Drivers and our customers!

At Bison Transport we constantly invest in our fleet to ensure that our Drivers and customers have access to the latest in equipment and technology. You may have already read a little bit about how sometimes this dedication earns us special rewards like testing Freightliner’s pre-series Cascadia. While we only received one of those to test – out of 12 in North America, we’re adding 40 new Ultralight Freightliner tractors to our fleet!

While it’s a benefit for our Drivers to be equipped with the latest in technology, it’s also a benefit for our customers – and they are a large reason why we’ve added these new Ultralight tractors to our fleet.  The tractors are used for single-haul (non-LCV) use and because of their lighter weight, can haul heavier shipments.
