Testimonials

  • I'm writing to recommend the services of Fort Transportation.  We've counted on Fort and the services they provide since 2008 and have found them to be a reliable partner. I enjoy knowing I'm talking to people, not departments. I know them and they know me which makes everything work much smoother.  Fort Transportation has an old school style of running their business and I appreciate that. The pride and quality they strive for aligns with principles we value and want to convey to our customers.

  • 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.

  • "Fort Transportation has been providing us with high-quality, dependable service. One of our  top priorities is damage-free deliveries for a difficult product line, and Fort Transportation ensures that happens. Invoicing is clean with no surprises which is a luxury these days. When problems do occur, they are collaborative and pro-active and solutions are resolved to everyone's satisfaction. We appreciate the small size approach of Fort Transportation, as it allows us to get to know the people, rather than departments.

  • When calling in a freight pick up I am always met with amiable, courtesies and service. I truly appreciate the professional, yet human demeanor of your staff.

  • I call the top 20 carriers every day.  It goes without saying that the customer service reps are responsible for the first  impression of your company. Your employee, Marnie Leslie, ranks at the top of the list of exceptional CSR’s.  Marnie’s willingness to help, her attention to detail and the smile in her voice are priceless. One key component to me as the caller is the level of confidence I feel from any CSR, do they understand what they are talking about?  Are the answers to my questions reliable?   Marnie knocks it out of the park. LTL is not an exact science and we need people who are capable of thinking and expressing themselves quickly.  I was SUPER impressed that Marnie was able to retrieve 6 out of 7 Pro numbers for the 3rd party loads for CH Robinson. We were able to retender the 7th load for the same day pick up. We accomplished in about 10 minutes what would take other carriers about 25 – 30 minutes. I have not been working with your company for very long but I look forward to a healthy working relationship in the future.

  • I agree with the sentiment that Fort treats its customers with great care. I'm always amazed that when I deal with them, I often wind up very quickly speaking with the Vice President who handles my simple requests with speed, efficiency and high accuracy. There's no monkeying around and the resulting service is exceptional. Fort truly cares for each and every customer, whether you're spending $100 a year with them, or $30,000. I wish I could reward them with more business.
