by Today's Trucking

The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) appointed Tim Bennett as chairman of its board of directors.

Bennett is the vice-president at NCSG Crane & Heavy Haul and has been actively involved with AMTA for more than 15 years, including serving as the senior vice-chairman since 2018.

He will help advance the AMTA’s proposed safety and innovation campus and other initiatives to tackle Alberta’s commercial driver shortage.

“Trucking is the engine that keeps our supply chains flowing and drives Alberta’s economy forward,” Bennett said in a news release. “Our province’s economic recovery is fragile, so we need a robust, dynamic commercial transportation industry now more than ever.”

Bennett brings safety and prevention experience to his new role. Starting his career as a firefighter and paramedic, he became a remedial measures advisor (RMA) in 1995, which involved responding to dangerous goods incidents for road, rail, and pipelines.

In 2005, he became a manager of safety and security for major projects all over North America at Enbridge. Five years later, Bennett joined NCSG to oversee loss management and compliance, later taking on the additional role of vice-president of operations.

In addition to Bennett, AMTA’s board executive includes immediate past chairman Doug Paisley (Lethbridge Truck Terminals), senior vice-chairman Real Durand (Bison Transport), and vice-chairman Brad Beerling (Meridian Manufacturing).
