Driver of the Month

Merle Wickstand | February 2024


Bison Transport

Congratulations to Merle Wickstrand with Bison Transport who is the STA Professional Driver of the Month for February 2024!

Merle, a Bison driver with 22 years of experience, residing in North Battleford and operating from the Saskatoon Yard, has an impressive record of over 1.75 million safe miles. While Merle initially served as a long haul driver and contributed to the LCV fleet, he recently transitioned to Bison's Hoppers division, where he now transports grain. Despite being a relatively new segment of the business, the Hopper division is experiencing rapid growth, and Merle's decision to bring his wealth of experience to this sector is highly valued and appreciated. His involvement in hauling grain commenced in the fall of 2023.

Merle actively participated in Bison's Driver Advisory Board in 2023 and received recognition twice from the 'Charging Ahead' Program for his exceptional dedication and service.
