With all the modern technology that has flooded the market—to assist us in getting the client from point A to point B as quickly as possible, perhaps nothing has impacted us more than the advent of GPS. Unfortunately, no matter how sophisticated they make it, or how many technological upgrades we download into it, there is no GPS capable of showing us the correct path to building a successful ground transportation company.
