I think that my shipping story is very unique. I am in the US Navy Seabees and am currently deployed in support of South West Asia. In the middle of my deployment I found a boat that was a great deal and was something I was patiently waiting for. I found this boat about 650 miles away from my home. On a normal day I would have picked it up myself so I was very apprehensive on having someone else move what I have worked so hard to achieve. Your company allowed me to take advantage of this opportunity and not to let it slip away. It was actually very simple to set this up and it worked better than expected. There was a seven-hour time zone difference and U-Ship made it seem like there was no time difference at all. My present job in the military has me supporting outlining Detachments by the embarkation of equipment and materials. In the last four months I have shipped by air, sea and land over 266 short tons of supplies at a value of over $1,792,000. This has made it a little different on shipping something personally with this being said I am extremely pleased with this company and the shipping provider that I have already recommended to several friends and coworkers that have also since used your services. I enjoy the fact that you can post a shipment and people can bid, If your time line is flexible you can very often get a better deal. As a Seabee one of our sayings is “CAN DO!” well let me say that you guys lived up to our motto! I again thank you and now when I return state side I will not have to worry about shipping any more, I just have to worry about where the fish are biting. You guys have my fullest endorsement and confidence! Corey T. Pugh CMC (SCW/AW) USN
