Professional carrier, proactive updates, and strong drivers. Takes ownership of problems and solves them.

By booking more of my freight! I have very little to complain about in regards to operational competence.

Carrier was easy to get setup they are a fleet of Owner Operator based trucks. With that said, we have had a couple of good owner-operators that work with them but they have quite a few owner-ops that are the worst to deal with. We had a driver call on a load we had posted and because it was a 15ft partial and we would not give the owner-operator full truck laod rate the owner-operator went out on Google and several other webpages and started putting bad comments on our company profile pages even though the Owner-operator didnt take the load and when we asked TrueNorth to have the OO remove the comments they said they have no control over their owner ops and they do as they please.

Dislikes

True north needs to get a handle on their owner ops and take control of them before things get really bad because of a poor judgment call made by one of their owner ops.
