With so many options for freight companies, it can be hard to determine which companies are more beneficial than others. When it comes to choosing a freight company, it’s important to keep in mind what makes a successful and prominent freight company like Evan Transportation.

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.

What to Expect from your Freight Company

Reliable Freight Service

There are a lot of choices when it comes to picking a freight company when you need product transported. Do you know what you should be looking for and expecting when it comes to your freight company? Here are four important traits you should expect from your trucking company:

  1. Your freight company should deliver your shipment in a timely manner. The delivery should arrive by the given time and in the correct delivery address.
  2. Cheaper isn’t always better. Rates given by the freight company don’t necessarily have to be the lowest, but the most reasonable. Rates should be competitive and should ensure high quality service and the ability to handle emergency situations should they arise.
  3. While your delivery should arrive on time, you should also receive a response from an office quickly. When you have questions about procedures or any concerns with your service, you shouldn’t have to wait for a response from office personnel.
  4. You should be able to trust your driver when they are transporting your shipment. Problems happen and when they do, your driver should be upfront with you instead of sidestepping the issue. Your questions should always be answered without hesitation.

When you hear these four characteristics, you are hearing four main focuses of Evan Transportation.
