Western Express is always able to move loads from the southeast up to the north. They are always friendly and accessible if you need them. They have done several loads going from the deep south to the midwest area. As well as some north eastern loads as well.

All around solid partner provider for all services they offer. Dry vans / flatbed / spot & award. Have a knack for the challenges and frustrations of the automotive business so pretty even-keeled. Solid communication & trailer tracking.

Dislikes

Carrier defers to online tracking updates too heavily. Can be hard to reach contacts for updates when urgent/timely updates are needed.
