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.
Martin B. Smith, Ocean Exports Mgr.
Saving Shipping & Forwarding USA
We found that our bargaining power when it came to rates for general cargo was not as competitive as we needed. The NCBFAASA was just the tool to fix this problem. The NCBFAASA cut the costs of our general traffic and sped up our response times to quote inquiries. The NCBFAASA has been very effective in keeping Saving Shipping & Forwarding USA informed. We use NCBFAASA’s frequent messages on trade conditions, port closures, steamship line announcements and re-alignments to inform our clients of the changes occurring in the industry. The management team has been instrumental in helping us with rate dispute issues and other occasional faux pas of the steamship lines sales and rate teams. It always helps to have an extra voice on your side.
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.
