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 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.

A-Z on ELDs: A Shipper’s Guide to Electronic Logging Devices

The recent ELD (electronic logging devices) mandate in the United States has sent ripples through the North American trucking industry. Many truck drivers, shippers and carriers are concerned with the ruling, arguing that it will hinder driver safety and lead the industry to be less efficient. Concerns from drivers and carriers are valid, but the issue comes back to a simple difference in perspective: ELDs don’t have to be an exclusive compliance tool. When used effectively, this technology can make all parties more efficient, increasing earnings for drivers, revenue for carriers and reducing costs and time to market for shippers. Read more ›
