A Brief History of Bison USA

Established in 1969, Bison Transport is a leading asset-based freight solution that employs over 2,600 professional drivers and staff throughout terminals in Canada, the United States, and Mexico. After handling a large portion of Bison’s US freight over the course of five years, in 2014, Bison acquired Bison USA and further strengthened its fleet network. A wholly owned subsidiary of Bison, Bison USA provides asset based transportation solutions across the lower 48 states with 150 tractors and 270 trailers, including 53’ reefers, dry vans, and flatbed trailers. Bison USA’s core markets include Eastern North Dakota and Iowa, with services covering long-haul, regional, and dedicated fleet operations.
