Merchants Fleet is excited to announce it has been named one of the country’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®. The award recognizes companies that excel at employee relations, use innovation to motivate employees, implement creative compensation programs, and more.

We believe that each employee can be a leader in their role, every day, and it’s rewarding to have our focus on building an innovative culture be considered a national example.”
