Prince George Driver Anish Varghese

Anish has been driving for Diamond Delivery for 5years. He started with our Surrey fleet, migrated
over to our Abbotsford crew and now operates out of our Prince George terminal.

Raised in India, Anish’s his favorite childhood memory is playing cricket with his friends. Anish began
his career as an Electrician. While in trades school, he met and fell in love with a girl to whom he has
been happily married for 17years. Together they are raising 3 children aged 16, 6 & 5.

He plays the side drum with his church and performs for the Christmas concerts every year. If you
see Anish eating it will be curry rice being that it’s his favorite food. From time to time, Anish will delve
into his hidden talent of drawing. Always happy and smiling while on the job, going above and beyond
ensuring our customers receive their freight in a timely manner. And, after a long day’s work,
he loves to get home to his family and watch his favorite show Mimicry.

We appreciate you!

Sukhpal, Bhangra Dance King!

Sukhpal was born in Punjab and came to Canada at the age of 22.
He is a Bhangra dance coach, plays Cricket in his free time and was once a team leader in a furniture manufacturing company before getting into the transportation field. Even though he has been with Diamond Delivery since 2016, he did once have a dream of being a stitch artist (embroidery)!

Sukh has a beautiful wife and one very charming daughter. His role model is his own father, perhaps where he inherited his own big, generous heart. He likes to go to the gym, drink Scotch, travel, cook and Bhangra. If he could be a movie star, he would choose to be Jason Statham because he enjoys the roles he plays and well he is fittingly handsome😉

Sukh is a team player; always the first to step up when help is needed. He is very loyal and dedicated to both his job and family.

How lucky we are to have such a character on our Surrey team.

We have a Popstar in the House! Say hello to Hardeep Cheema.

Before moving to Canada in 2002, Hardeep made a livelihood singing professionally in India for
several years. His songs were played regularly on the radio, and he performed at concerts while
producing 4 of his own records. He is well known in the Province of Punjab. Today, you can listen to
his music on Spotify or look him up on YouTube.

Hardeep moved to Canada to take advantage of the many employment opportunities and has since
spent the past 20 years driving trucks for a living. He has further enhanced his driving knowledge by
going to school to become a certified instructor for class 4, 5 & 7 operators. Check out his side gig
at HC Driver Training. Hardeep is married with two kids and lives in Surrey, BC. His favorite food is
Butter Chicken, and he has a sweet tooth for Kheer, a dessert made from rice. He hopes to travel to
Europe with his family soon and one day get back into singing as he continuously practices his gift.

What a pleasure to have Hardeep as part of our Surrey team.

Keith Epp – Long Haul Driver, Kamloops BC

Keith has been in the transportation industry since he was 19 years old when he bought his first rig.
An Owner/Operator for Diamond Delivery over the past 16 years, his home base is out of our
Kamloops terminal where he currently provides linehaul service to Northern BC.

When asked what his greatest achievement is, he says – being married to his beautiful wife of 24
years and proudly raising two boys. He is a meat and potatoes kind of guy who finds hunting and
fishing relaxing. And, wouldn’t you know it, he loves all things trucks! He says being an Owner
Operator and trucking IS LIFE.

Keith’s father was his mentor and guide in life, he had profound influence on him and made him the
man he is today. A few words his teammates would use to describe him: fair-minded,
hard hardworking, respectful, dedicated, and thorough.

Keith is an integral part of our organization, and we are fortunate to have him as part of our crew.

Keith, thank you for all that you do!

Meet Manny, Driver 117 – Abbotsford

Manny has been with Diamond Delivery for 6 months and loves this job!

Our team dubs him the energizer bunny for deliveries in/out of the Abbotsford and Mission areas
as he doesn’t stop to rest until the job is done.

His proudest moment was becoming a father and when not working his biggest joy is spending
time with his family.

Burgers are his favorite food along with Punjabi and Hip-Hop music. When asked if he had a
choice on what his profession in life would be, he says “I would choose the career I have now
because I get to help everyone”.

Manny is a true example of what Diamond Delivery is all about.

Meet Rao Barinder-Tractor Owner/Operator with our Surrey Team

Rao was born in India and moved to Canada in 2002 where he enrolled in BCIT to become an electrician. The economic downturn in the late 2000’s had him searching for other work opportunities which is how he found his way into trucking and has been with Diamond Delivery since 2016.

He has two children, a 4-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy and says he spends much of his free time watching Paw Patrol. His favorite character is Chase “The Chief” as he likes to call him. Rao used to play for the Guildford soccer club but retired a few years ago and now enjoys watching his son play and assists in coaching the team. His favorite food is salmon and rice and if he were granted a wish to wake up one day as a different person, he would choose to be a famous Punjabi singer named Dilgit Dosanjh.

Rao has demonstrated on many occasions to being an integral part of our team. He is an enthusiastic, safety orientated and reliable driver. We are blessed to have him.

We appreciate you!

Meet John Tait

John is the type of guy we can always rely on, always on on-time, ready to work, and puts his best face forward for our customers. He regularly receives customer praise for going above the call of duty as he consistently shows up with a cheerful outlook each day. John has been with Diamond Delivery for close to 3 years, working out of the Nanaimo terminal. His paperwork is always in order, he knows the particulars of our customers and how to best service them efficiently, and he never shirks away from a difficult delivery or helping a neighboring terminal.

When interviewed about his tenure with Diamond Delivery, John had this to say:

“What I like most about working with Diamond is when I come in, I can put my head down and get to work; things are straightforward, my route is pre-planned and ready, and the warehouse is laid out so I can quickly play Tetris in my head for how I’m going to load my truck. I like that the warehouse is kept tidy – it is easy to move around, and a much safer environment from other freight companies I have worked for in the past.”

Asked what we could do to improve our operations. John said more consistent entry of consignee contact numbers input into our system. He says often, drivers are left to call the office for contact information that is not available. We will take John’s advice and implement the necessary steps to improve efficiency in this area, thank you John!

When not working at Diamond Delivery, John spends his time writing and as a stand-up comic. He gets energized talking about his jokes and which ones work for certain audiences. A couple of nights a week, he also works as a designated driver picking up folks from the clubs to drive them home safely.

John is a valued member of our Nanaimo team, and his work is greatly appreciated.
