At Martin Transportation Systems, the safety of our employees and the motoring public is our top priority. We pride ourselves on hiring and retaining experienced drivers who have demonstrated a commitment to operating safely throughout their driving career. Due to this approach and the high standards we set for our drivers, we are proud to say that we are in the top 25% of comparable carriers in 5 of the 7 CSA BASIC categories, and we continue to focus on and make steady improvement in the remaining 2 categories.

Our Safety and Compliance Department continually monitors the performance of our drivers with a number of programs and resources designed to identify and correct unsafe behaviors. Peoplenet Elogs is utilized to ensure accuracy and compliance with the Hours of Service regulations, as well as to provide our drivers with their dispatch information, fuel economy, and other information.

Our Driver Performance Bonus rewards drivers who have zero safety issues and zero CSA points for the month, along with an acceptable fuel economy, low idle time and no disciplinary issues. We also have a Driver of the Month program which recognizes the top driver from each terminal on a monthly basis, and from those drivers we select one driver as the Corporate Driver of the Month. The Corporate Driver of the Month will receive a number of rewards and will also be eligible for the MTS Driver of the Year Award.


Martin Transportation Systems commitment to being one of the safest carriers on the road is the responsibility of each and every employee with the company, and together we will continue to set the standard for our competitors.
