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!

Nova Lines have been a tremendous asset to our company. Their dispatcher communication is unmatched, and Roger Bogos and his team are as solid as it gets. I never have to worry when I book freight with them, as their team keeps me updated without having to ask. Thanks for all you do!

This team did a great job on our load after we had a few unexpected bounces that were short notice. This teams rate was slightly higher than what we expected to sell it for, but due to the time constraints it was necessary. Overall they ran a good load and would recommend.
