Automotive Fleet have just published a great article online detailing Modern Transportation Services’ progressive approach to employee safety, supported by their use of the GreenRoad system:

The company was recently presented the Fleet Safety Award, sponsored by the American Automotive Leasing Association (AALA) and Bobit Business Media, publisher of Automotive Fleet, and selected by the presidents of 10 of the largest fleet management companies.
