Heniff Transportation Systems Honors Two Recipients of TCA’s Highway Angel Award


Highway Heroics Include Selfless, Life-saving Efforts of Two Professional Drivers


OAK BROOK, IL – June 17, 2022 – Heniff Transportation Systems LLC today hosted a company-wide event to honor two of its professional drivers for their receipt of the TCA Highway Angels award.  Matthew Marchand of Ottawa, ONT and Juan Vasquez of Pedricktown, NJ were named Truckload Carrier Association Highway Angels for their selfless service to aid others on the nation’s highways this year.  Since its inception in 1997, TCA’s Highway Angel program has recognized professional truck drivers for the exemplary courtesy and courage they have shown others while on North America’s roadways.


“Our entire organization is extremely pleased to show our admiration to both Matthew and Juan for their service and achievement,” said Bob Heniff, Founder & Chief Executive Officer.  “We are certainly proud of their demonstrated commitment to safety in line with our mission.  But more than that, we are proud to honor them for their exemplary compassion and humanity to risk their lives for others in dire situations.”


Matthew Marchand is a professional company driver for Heniff’s Canadian subsidiary Premier Bulk Systems.  He earned his Highway Angel award for providing emergency services and supplies to motorists who were stranded on I-95 for over twenty-four hours on January 3rd when a foot of snow, downed trees, and several accidents brought traffic to a standstill on a 48-mile stretch of highway


Juan Vasquez is a professional company driver for Heniff who operates out of the Company’s Pedricktown, NJ terminal.  He earned his Highway Angel award in January of this year by using his tractor-trailer to block rush hour traffic on I-76 in order to rescue a distressed woman from the middle of the five lane highway and bring her to safety
