Booked a load with this company and they signed my rate con. Later asking for quick pay, but right away I sensed they were using this CO as a fraudulent carrier. Turns out, they did not pick up nor do they answer their phone or emails anymore. FRAUD!

We found out that the trucking company that arrived to pick up our load was not Century Services. The truck and trailer number, even the driver's name didn't match to what they provided us with. They replicated our rate con and made it their own but it's obvious that it's fake. They are double broker! DO NOT USE

Century Services has been a great freight partner for us on dry van loads. Always courteous with our shippers, good comms and driver tracking. On time at the shipper. On time at delivery. They operate with a high level of professionalism. Our experience with this carrier has been a positive one.
