Jeff Jones honored as MTS Corporate Driver of the month for March 2019

Martin Transportation Systems wishes to congratulate Jeff Jones from our Bertrand, MO terminal as Corporate Driver of the Month for March 2019

Jeff has been a dedicated employee with MTS since August 2013. In his nomination, Brista Clark, Bertrand Terminal Manager, stated, “Jeff picks up GM parts in Seymour, IN six days a week faithfully during early morning hours. He has never called off from work nor picked up a load late. Awesome right? Considering the fact, he sometimes has just a couple minutes to spare on his clock when he gets in. He is always consistent and furthermore a great team player. You couldn’t ask for a better co-worker or friend. We appreciate Jeff very much!”

Congrats Jeff, keep up the good work!
