I work for a small company and I was asked to take charge of this shipment. I went into my company file and couldn't find any information on local transportation companies. Our company does most shiptment overseas. I have recently moved to the LA and I'm not familiar with area yet. I got into the web and started a search on freight companies, I saw the uShip link and got into it. In no time I was setting my shipment, and started the bid process. In less than two hours I had 2 to 3 bids. I waited until next day to review all bids. I selected a 2 o 3 candidates. I read their profiles and some of the customer reviews, I quickly selected one provider and got in contact with him. I asked some questions and clarify some concerns that I had. In less than 10 minutes Mike and I had made all the arrangements for my shipment. He was in our facilities by tha date we set, picked up the shipment and had it delivered by the date we had previouly established. Overall it was a sucessful story.
