What Our Members Are Saying....

John Hamilton, VP Operations

Pinnacle International Freight

Pinnacle International Freight have utilized the contract services of NCBFAASA for several years now and have found the rates to be very competitive within the ever changing marketplace. Another important aspect for our client base, is the speed in receiving rates from the NCBFAASA contracts. We have been very pleased with the quick response times on our rate requests, whether it standard containerized equipment or specialty out of gauge special projects. Overall, we have found the services of NCBFAASA to be a valuable tool in our everyday operations in moving our customers’ cargo.

John Sepela, International Ops. Mgr.

M and L Trucking, Incorporated

We have been utilizing the Shipper’s Association FCL contracts for many years. The rates are competitive and the port pairs are extensive. The main attraction, however, is that having access to the rates allows us to return an accurate quote to our customer within minutes of having received their request. That – to me – is an invaluable benefit of membership in the S.A.

Jim Shapiro, Director 

Thunderbolt Global Logistics, LLC

We have been a member of the NCBFAASA since 2008. Working with the Team is a throwback to the days of personalized customer service. Prompt responses are delivered within minutes. If a rate is not established, they will obtain a quote from the carrier to be filed. The Association has established excellent relationships with the ocean carriers. The Cargosphere platform is easy to use and gives us the visibility we need in choosing the right carrier by port pair. We have won a lot of business due to the efforts of the Team at the NCBFAASA. It’s been a true partnership.
