Leading Fleets Rankings Announced at GFX

Government Fleet announced the rankings for the top 20 of the 50 Leading Fleets and recognized the remaining award recipients at the Government Fleet Expo and Conference (GFX) on June 18. Judges Craig Croner, Brian Franklin, and Sam Lamerato were on stage to congratulate the fleet.
