Last week, I had a problem. A client in Portland needed a machine from me near Fresno, but I couldn't find a decent rate on trucking. I realized that the old broker who had helped us in the past had no leads on good truckers to get my small farm implement from Fresno area to the Portland area. We tried for two weeks but found nothing reasonable, and more than one guy flaked on us. After two weeks of frustration, serendipity stepped in. I found out about uShip.com from a trucker sitting next to me on a plane flight home last Saturday. The next day (last Sunday), I entered information about my load onto uShip.com, hit enter, and went to bed. When I woke up Monday morning, I had a broker with trucks ready to go by Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning. They picked up Tuesday and my load was delivered two days later near Portland, OR. We had no hassles and no problems, yet I saved myself $700.00 off the best quote the old broker could find for me. Uship.com appears to be the place to solve my domestic trucking problem. I am very impressed and will certainly be a repeat customer.
