We can't say enough about these drivers.
And we're not alone.

Great drivers across Canada were nominated for the work they do.

Six drivers won $1,000 in Petro-Canada™ gift cards, and many more were honoured with nominations and kudos from our trucking community.

Kaven Mielke

Every family has its traditions. "Driving excellence" is Kaven's.

His father was a truck driver. His grandfather was a truck driver. And now, Kaven's bringing his positive, respectful attitude to the job, too.

Quote mark  Kaven is carrying on the Mielke family tradition, which began with his grandfather, who founded the company in 1981. 

His conduct is exemplary, he is respectful of the environment, and — most important, in my view — he enjoys his work, and it shows in his interactions with his peers.

Kenneth Davison

Kenneth always delivers. And we're not just talking cargo.

Few go above and beyond more than Kenneth, who always provides excellent service to his customers and other drivers, every day.

Quote mark  Kenny has many years in the transportation industry before coming to Maritime Shunting Services Inc.  

Kenny certainly goes above and beyond to provide excellent service to our customers, other drivers and our company. It is an honour to nominate Kenny for this appreciation award.

Diversified Transportation Ltd., BC

Rose Faucher

Thank you for delivering our most precious cargo.

In small towns, everyone knows everyone. And Rose's rural community knows her for getting their children to school safely every single day.

Quote mark  Rose has been a bus driver for 30+years.

I personally believe that Rose should be nominated for driver of the century, not just year, as the peace of mind that our family has experienced thanks to her ever present care, consideration and safety first attitude has given us over the many miles of driving she has done, and I will always grateful for that.

Westcan Bulk Transport, AB

Shane Woodley

Shane always goes the extra mile, kilometre after kilometre.

Although it's hard to be away from his family, Shane is a devoted father of four who always delivers. For his kids, and his customers.

Quote mark  Shane is someone I would consider a "go to" driver. He always goes the extra mile to get the job done safely and on time, whether it is delivering fuel on the ice road in the Northwest Territories, loading gas in Great Falls, Montana or delivering Anhydrous Ammonia through the Prairie provinces.

A portrait of Hugh McLorinan
Trimac Transportation, ON

Hugh McLorinan

Zero collisions doesn't just happen by accident.

For over 30 years, Hugh has driven countless miles without the smallest incident. Which is an incredible accomplishment.

Quote mark  Hugh has been driving tankers for about 30 years. He has travelled to BC and much of northern states. He was given a gentleman's US OPEN HAT for saving his life in a moving collision from another vehicle. I am nominating him for his safe driving habits.
