“EXTRA CHARGE CARRIER”

What went poorly?
  • Late Delivery

I'm not a fan of using SAIA, they tend to be a carrier that is known for extra charges, any time you have a limited access delivery they always add the lift gate charge on the bill, even if the customer has a way to unload the truck, they always never want to admit there error in billing disputes, I stay way from SAIA for my LTL shipments

We have an account with SAIA and they provide very competitive rates. Great website to use for tracking. Easy to work with if there is a claim situation or disputes.
