Likes

Carrier provides bonded services through the US from both canada and MX. They make a very complicated process seem easy and provide solid communication & visibility throughout their transits.

Dislikes

Rates can change dramatically on a dime. Will give pre-booked loads back if market changes and they think the rate is too low. Can make it hard as a broker to commit long term to any business with them. But excellent gauge for spot market current prices.
