Shipex has trucks all over, all with very specific and consistent goals, get back to Salt Lake City.

If you have a load going East to west, they will deliver it as advertised with reliable equipment.

Dislikes

Ive had some trouble getting truck updates in the past, but it varies sales rep to sales rep.
I like working with David Thompson and Eddie Mack.
Rates are also typically higher than market, but not too far off.

We have run a few loads with Shipex and they have always done a great job for my team. They have never missed an appointment and have a friendly staff. All communication does go through dispatch but they give accurate updates.

Dislikes

Nothing negative to say about this carrier. We will continue using them at my brokerage.
