We purchased small office equipment in CT, and needed to get it delivered to OH. Freight forwarders were a hassle, high priced, and was a real chore. Each one required time for each layer of personnel just what our needs were, and how the shipment needed to be handled.
Then we found uShip. This was our first time using uShip. Although some of the first respondents to our posting were "quirky", we were able to screen out those that didn't fit our need. Then, Kelly Freight Service responded, and they were helpful, courteous, and professional. Their bid was a great bang-for-the-buck and their service was outstanding! We would have never known about them, had it not been for uShip! uShip allows you to post your shipping needs and concerns so that all participating shippers will have access to the information you post. uShip allows editing of postings, especially helpful when you need to add details or conditions change. There are no more endless hours on the phone or the internet, searching and wondering how you'll find what you need, (you know; the proverbial "he said, -I thought, -could you imagine" routine!). Any questions and bids from shippers were handled at my convenience, right from my laptop. We choose to be alerted by email and phone, so we knew when there was activity without having to drop our work schedule. Unless your profession is traffic & logistics, uShip has proven to us the savings in time, effort, and cost!
