No shipment too big. No deadline too tight. This is Shipping Wars.

Since premiering in January 2012, Shipping Wars has followed a number of independent truckers who competitively bid to transport oversized, bulky loads found on uShip.com, the world's largest online shipping marketplace. From rookie haulers to seasoned veterans, no shipment is too big or bizarre for these carriers, who compete in a high-stakes, deadline-driven race where any setback can cost big bucks.

Meet the Cast

Marc Springer

Marc is arguably the most identifiable character on Shipping Wars thanks to his signature handlebar upper lipholstery that extends down to his cheeks and neck. This former Harley Davidson salesman found his way into trucking out of necessity and has been an old school hauler since 2009. Searching for extra income, Marc stumbled upon an online ad looking for someone to ship two Harleys across the country for $2,000. Using his experience with Harley-Davidson, he won the bid and never looked back.

Jarrett Joyce

Known as The Rookie since the show premiered in January 2012, Jarrett is still struggling to learn the the ins and outs of the shipping world. Unlike the other established haulers, Jarrett is fighting for survival by moving some of the most unique and bizarre freight on the show. An avid golfer and aspiring PGA Tour player, Jarrett uses uShip to map his shipments and routes with respective PGA qualifying events.

Todd & Tamera Sturgis

Before hitting the road together years ago, Todd and Tamera struggled a bit as newlyweds, not an unusual occurrence for young couples. Todd had two jobs, one being a forklift driver, and took on a third job in trucking. Tamera waited tables at night. They never saw each other. Todd began noticing he could make a lot of money in trucking – even more than the other two jobs combined. He suggested Tamera try trucking, as well. "We enrolled in trucking school and 8 weeks later we were on the road doing jobs," Tamera said. "I was good at shifting and he was good at backing up. We had a good coupling of skills." Now, 20 years later, they're a power couple on and off the road delivering a little bit of everything.

Jennifer Brennan

Don't let Jennifer's sweet disposition fool you. She's no stranger to a hard day's work. Known as Shipping Wars' "Cowgirl," Jennifer grew up in a rodeo family and has been hauling livestock since she was able to reach the pedals. After college, she began to transport exotic horses and livestock across the country. After joining uShip, Jennifer began to expand her shipping capabilities beyond farm animals, and on Shipping Wars, she's hauled everything from a wedding cake and mechanical zombies to a tunnel boat and arcade games.

Dusty Davie

Born into one of the most trusted trucking families in the country, Dusty has made a name for himself transporting through uShip. He is not shy when it comes to tooting his own horn, and based on how he gives the bleep operator on his toes each episode, he doesn't have much of a filter. Dusty makes his living by hauling everything big, believing that no load is too large or challenging, as long as you stay out of his way.

Jessica Samko

After breaking up with her boyfriend, Jessica founded her own trucking business and is willing to haul anything and everything she can get her hands on. Behind the wheel of her 18-wheeler, Jessica is known for being a tough and adventurous hauler, unabashed for speaking her mind. What she lacks in experience she makes up for with her passion and get-it-done attitude.

Did you know Jessica was a Finalist for Overdrive's Most Beautiful Contest?

Christopher Hanna & Robbie Welsh

Chris and Robbie certainly don't scream "trucker" at first glance, but don't be fooled. They know what they're doing, and they do it exceptionally well. Chris has been a part of the uShip family since 2008. He created his account, FCCLLCTransport, to transport a little bit of everything. Now, with Robbie's help this duo specializes in transporting high-end boats and yachts. This transition was only natural given Chris' lifetime of experience around boats. Together they've earned uShip's highest rank – Platinum Power Carrier.

Roy Garber

While millions of Shipping Wars viewers will remember Roy as a bigger-than-life personality who knew what it took to get the delivery job done, many of us in the uShip family knew him as a personal friend. He spent considerable time at our Austin headquarters, served as company spokesperson and was a long-time service provider on our site. Roy is greatly missed and will always be remembered.
