Customer Testimonials

I have been in the shipping industry since the 70's and have worked with various tariff companies. Your company is the only one that takes the time to explain new regulations, has an interactive user friendly website and confirms the rate filing the same day. You are all so unbelievably attentive and professional at your job it is amazing. It is such a pleasure to do business with such experts.

- Mickey McKenna, BLUE CARRIER LINE INC.
