Booked a same day team run for slightly over market rate. ETA was accurate and their updates were timely

Dislikes

Only downside with these guys was the rate. Nothing to improve other than that.

This carrier took a load from OH - MI for us and delivered the load on time. They charged more than we wanted to pay but this was a really hot load that needed to be moved fast so we paid the rate.

Dislikes

The drivers were hard to get in touch with and all communication had to go through dispatch. Also they were high on rate but they are a Chicago carrier so its to be expected.
