Palmer Bus Service, which is based in North Mankato and has a location in Austin, was one of several transportation teams honored recently.

Palmer was a first honorable mention, which was also the first company to win the award last year when it began.

More companies enrolled in the Top Transportation Teams, now in its second year, and the number of survey responses per team was also up nearly three times compared with the previous year. The number of enrollees with more than 100 staff members tripled from last year as well.

“The Top Transportation Teams awards program has truly become a much sought after award now,” said Antonio Civitella, president and CEO of Transfinder, the industry’s leading transportation logistics software and hardware company which oversees the program. “We heard so many stories about districts being celebrated by their local communities as well as by state transportation associations. Districts used the award to recruit new team members and build strong relationships within their department. Not surprisingly, the competition was even tougher this year. We were pleased to see such great involvement from the teams. The feedback each participant received will help them get even better than they already are.”

Winners were determined solely by anonymous survey results. Team members answered questions related to their department, such as leadership, career development, resources and incentives. 

The program was launched last year by Transfinder Corp.,   leader in school transportation logistics and hardware.
