Track a Shipment:
The Reliability Team
Fort Transportation & Service Co., Inc. is a regional LTL carrier who specializes in putting their customer’s needs first. This “customer first” philosophy has allowed us to provide superior transportation solutions since 1928 by meeting or exceeding their needs. We are committed to the SAFETY and WELLBEING of our customers and employees.
My role as manager of both warehouse and transportation functions at Parts Now can be complex yet intriguingly challenging and rewarding. Over the years I have learned that to be successful you need the right blend of valued partners.
When FORT’S Sales Representative called on Managed Packaging, we knew that the level of service for our transportation needs were about to go up. We worked with the sales representative previously and knew that his industry knowledge and commitment to his customers would definitely help us out. We committed to ship with FORT that day and we have not been disappointed since.
Approximately eighty years ago, Fort Transportation and the Gustave A. Larson Company started their respective operations, building on the tenets of providing legendary customer service. In 2008, Fort Transportation and Larson Company began a partnership as I made a decision to switch carriers. In my twenty—five years of experience in distribution and logistics, I don’t recall a more seamless, smooth and enjoyable transition between carrier and shipper. Fort Transportation has proven to us that they value us as a customer and I look forward to continuing our business partnership for many years to come.
Our finished products are time sensitive, which requires that we move our product as fast as possible from point A to point B. Fort Transportation has meet our needs for over the past 20 plus years. They are fast to respond and help in every way possible to ensure our needs are met. This ‘CAN DO’ attitude is portrayed across the board. From their management to their drivers, top to bottom. As our shipping / receiving manager, I can attest to this ‘CAN DO’ attitude. Often times they will go above and beyond to meet or exceed my needs whether the product is inbound or outbound. They are honest, loyal and friendly to their customers. It is a pleasure doing business with them now and in the future.
I have worked for a manufacturer as the Traffic Manager for over 22 years. Our freight is primarily LTL and ships all over the country. Fort Transportation has always been a very reliable source for our regional freight. When I need a volume quote or flat pallet rate, Fort has come through with competitive rates and excellent service. They are prompt to pick up and deliver in a timely manner.
