Testimonials from TL Clients

“After meeting you on July 20, 2016 to learn more about the LTL industry, it was much to our delight to discover that you were not only immensely knowledgeable on the LTL and Truckload industries, but a great match-maker as well. Thank you for approaching and entrusting us with the Abilene Motor Express process...We could not be happier with where each brand collectively ended up as part of our transaction. ”

Executive Chairman, Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings, Inc.

We needed more market and competitive information, and your team exceeded our expectations. The market analysis was very detailed and very current…You are the best in the business.”

President, Dedicated and Final Mile, J.B. Hunt Transport

“I’m impressed with your team’s ability to aggregate data and draw actionable conclusions, and to forecast industry trends. We’ve acted on many of your recommendations, resulting in favorable outcomes that far exceed the fees we paid for services.”

CEO of XPO Logistics/Freight

Keynote addresses at industry conferences:

“Thank you for being the Friday featured speaker at the CLI User Group Conference last week in White Plains, NY, You knocked it out of the park like you always do with your session on dimensioning of shipments and the subsequent follow up “debate” were conference highlights!”

– Carrier Logistics, Inc.


  • Annual listing of top 25 TL carriers and factors contributing to changes in market dynamics
  • Annual list of top 50 trucking companies
  • Publications on TL topics: pricing for TL service to include weight of the shipment, lobbying for larger trailers, truckload carriers have lot of synergy with the closest cousin “less-than-truckload” carriers; etc.

“I enjoyed your article in the JOC on TL pricing. It definitely needs a fresh look. Miles aren’t everything.”
