This year, National Trucking Week is from September 3 to September 9!
Why do we recognize National Trucking Week? Truck drivers play a vital role in our lives, and we’re excited to take some time this week to reflect, highlight and recognize the people behind the wheel.
How are we celebrating? We’re hosting a Bandstra swag giveaway, staff meals, and more fun activities to give back to our team.
As we celebrate national trucking week, we want to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude to the backbone of Bandstra Transportation - our dedicated drivers. Their unyielding commitment to safety, honesty, integrity, and strong work ethic is the driving force behind our success in serving the beautiful provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. In the vast and diverse landscapes that our drivers traverse, their dedication to safety is unwavering, ensuring that every mile is travelled conscientiously. Their embodiment of honesty and integrity not only forges strong relationships with our partners but also upholds the reputation we hold dear. It's through their continuing hard work that we overcome hurdles and continue to grow, setting new industry benchmarks. As we commemorate this week, we invite our drivers to reflect on the journey with us — a journey of mutual respect and shared aspirations. Your efforts lay the foundation for our accomplishments, and we are excited to keep moving forward together. Here's to the Bandstra Transportation family - drivers and team alike - united in purpose and driving towards a future of excellence

Western Star Tri-Drive Truck Driver
Mike has been an essential figure in our freight delivery journey, spanning from our early exploration days to our current operational status. His deep understanding of site needs has repeatedly proven invaluable, as he offers insightful suggestions and guidance for unforeseen challenges.
Beyond his expertise, he adds humour to the role, maintaining professionalism and best practices effortlessly. Mike's unrivalled knowledge of the site and roads brings reassurance to all, making him not only a skilled driver but also a trusted mentor.
Huge thanks to Bandstra for tackling this one for us and with such grace, it is really amazing to know that we can reach out on a Friday evening and receive assistance through a weekend. It takes special people to take these things on with a smile and all of you do. So thank you, again.
Thank you again, yourself and the team have been nothing short of amazing to work with. I was just telling Al this morning that all the drivers and everyone that drop off and pick up from here are super friendly, great to work with and always helpful if we need to hand bomb items etc.
Both the young gentlemen are a joy, extremely polite, and so positive and helpful. I think that not enough people pass along the good, only the negative. So please, tell Earle that his crew is wonderful, and I enjoy seeing them when they come to deliver.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated truck drivers who keep our nation, our freight, and our lives moving forward.
Your unwavering commitment and tireless efforts are the backbone of our economy and daily lives.
Thank you for your hard work, professionalism, and the miles you cover to ensure goods reach us all. Your journey drives our world.
