Was a bit frustrating working w/them as their communication isn't good. They picked up on time and then delivered/dropped very early...but we didn't know until three days later. They swapped out drivers w/out notice and we were already having tracking issues, once they finally got back to us is when we were told it had dropped days earlier by a local driver.

It was a pleasure to work with this carrier last year on a load. The communication from the dispatcher was solid. We received the necessary updates. The driver provided excellent tracking from start to finish. Looking forward to working with them again.

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.
