The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) is proud to announce its 2020/2021 team of Road Knights.
The AMTA Road Knights program is a group of professional transport drivers with superior driving skills, impeccable driving records and a strong desire to promote highway safety and careers in the transportation industry. These drivers have acquired unparalleled expertise and are able to educate the public on matters relating to sharing the road safely.

Serving the next two-year term is Sergio Hernandez (Trimac Transportation), David Horst (Ledcor Group), Myles McNabb (Westcan Bulk Transport) and Henry Wolf (Canada Cartage). The 2020/2021 Road Knight team has a combined 57 years of driving experience and has traveled more than 4.5 million kilometres.
The Knights will undergo a training day in which they will learn more about the AMTA as well as their duties. During their tenure, Knights will attend various AMTA events at Alberta schools, youth and employment agencies, career fairs – and more. They will share what it means to be a commercial driver, and how a career in transportation is both professional and lucrative.

“The AMTA Road Knights are industry ambassadors and I am looking forward to seeing what this group will accomplish during their term,” says AMTA President Chris Nash. “It’s also important I give heartfelt thanks to outgoing Road Knights Glenn McNeilly (Bison Transport) and Ed Stasyshyn (Trimac Transportation) for their contributions to the Association – and industry – over their past two-year term.”

The Road Knights are led by the AMTA’s Industry Workforce Advisor, Oriana Kolonsky.
