What People Say About Us
Cargo Services is part of our team. Because our customers are overseas and we use freight forwarding for product delivery timing to quote and move our product is as important as the pricing. Having an immediate response from Cargo Services is very important. No matter what challenge we toss at Marielle Wilson on the ocean exports team, she is always on the ball. This is just a great group of people. They’ll jump through hoops for us.

When we started working with Cargo Services, it didn’t take long to realize their team is the better choice among professional freight forwarders. The team has extensive experience and the service is second to none. If we ever have a problem, the owners are available to help make decisions for a fast resolution. We don’t have to make a dozen calls; instead the solution is immediate.
Our company was awaiting a product shipment of tiles and sinks that were in demand. I contacted our Cargo Services reps to get a status update and received details down to the day of estimated delivery within minutes. This team does an awesome job! I really appreciate how they keep our shipments on track. Megan and Rhonda have been great with updates, paperwork and keeping the process flowing smoothly. Thank you for all of your hard work.
Sometimes it sounds corny to describe a company as trustworthy, but the people at Cargo Services really are just that. I make one call. The team is responsive with fair pricing and excellent service. My rep seems to almost read my mind knowing when I need to get something done. It’s easy to do business with Cargo Services.
Cargo Services is a good partner for our company. It impressed me that Cargo Services is involved in the community through programs such as the Books for Youth Campaign. The owners also take good care of their employees and that shows. They are just really good people.
We were using two shipping companies. The other company’s management of deliveries was not up to the expected standards, so we moved logistics for our facility to Cargo Services team. Now everything moves seamlessly. If I call to find out where a shipment is in the supply chain, I get an answer quickly.
