John Costello honored as MTS Corporate Driver of the month for August 2019.

Martin Transportation Systems wishes to congratulate John Costello from our Bertrand, MO terminal as Corporate Driver of the Month for August 2019.

John has been a dedicated employee with MTS since February 2018. In his nomination, Brista Clark, Bertrand Terminal Manager, stated, “Bertrand would like to nominate John Costello. John has been nothing less than amazing from his start date. He started off during spontaneous runs and has always been up for the challenges, with a smile I may say. As a current six day Indy driver, he’s very unproblematic and dependable! He’s also very considerate of dispatch and is always thinking of ways to help them out if he has the available hours to do so. We thank John for his hard work and dedication! ”

Congrats John, keep up the good work!
