Everything went according to plan, and the dispatchers and drivers were very knowledgeable. Communication and driver updates were very easily attainable.

Dislikes

I don't believe there's much that could be improved from this experience.

They picked up and delivered a clean BOL and were timely.

They say they will reach out when the driver was at pick up and delivery but they never did, so needs improvement on communication.
