What Makes a Reliable Freight Company?

A major indication of the reliability of a freight company is their willingness to give times regarding your freight pickup and delivery. A freight company should never avoid giving you an expected pick up and arrival time for your freight shipment. If they fail to provide a time, it usually means they never arrive at the time they do provide, meaning they are usually unreliable. Another indication of the freight company is the rates they provide. While everyone is looking for a bargain in today’s tough economy, extremely low rates can indicate the inability of a company to handle emergencies or the quality of their service.


You want to be able to trust the driver who is transporting your freight. This means that if any issues should arise during the transportation process, your driver should discuss the matter with you. A driver who is unwilling to discuss problems with you is a driver that should probably not be trusted with your freight. While having an open line of communication with your driver is important, an open line of communication with the freight office is even more imperative. Should a problem or question arise regarding your freight, it should never be a problem to reach the freight office. You should never feel as though your freight company is keeping anything from you regarding your freight shipment.


Evan Transportation was founded in 1992 by Jerry Wolfarth, who at the time had over 25 years of experience in the trucking and transportation industry. The initial operation consisted of a few trucks and drivers who were dedicated and professional. The goal of the company was, and remains, to provide excellent, dependable service.
