Excellent carrier to work with...communication is easy and open, we don't run into issues w/them not being responsive or providing updates. Rarely has there been problems w/timeliness, tracking is consistent and rates are good!

Great carrier! Communication from dispatcher and driver was strong and reliable providing updates through email and text. Driver track smoothly throughout the entire haul with no issues at all. On time to both pick and delivery appointments. I definitely look forward to working with them again.

Working with Leo and the team at Nova Lines with open deck freight has been a great experience, they are professional and fair with pricing allowing me to grow my agency rather than worry about picks or drops. I would highly recommend Nova for any hauls!
