Could you please tell us about your background and your current role?

I have been driving dump trucks since I was 18 years old. I started in a paving company called ALW Paving and worked with them between 1978 and 1988. From 1989 to 2000, I drove trucks for Friesen Exc. From 2001 to 2007, I drove for my brother in-law in Kahn Construction. In 2007, I started my own business, Fehr Trucking, and here I am.

I was born in Tillsonburg, Ontario. I come from a family of 11 boys and I am the oldest. I am a conservative Mennonite and have a role as husband and father of 5 boys. I am active in our church as a youth leader.

What do you like most about your job?

What I like most about my job is meeting people and travelling around the country side.

How do you like to spend time outside of work?

I like to spend time with my family.

How did Tread help you solve these challenges?

Tread helps me to be more punctual.

Keeping better stewardship of my time.

What’s your favourite Tread feature and why?

I am not sure, as I am not familiar with all the features, but I am learning.
