We appreciate these professionals for their attention to high-quality service, industry knowledge, and overall capability.

Here’s what our honored carriers had to say: 

“I’ve had a relationship with Echo for over 10 years, all the reps always make an effort to make sure I have loads every day. I have zero complaints about Echo, compared to other brokers in the industry. Echo in my opinion is light years ahead. Echo is a prime example of how a logistics brokerage should treat their carriers.” 

  • Kris Cruz, Dispatch Team, NS Transport 

“The rates and customer service Echo provides are excellent. They are always quick and prompt with responses to freight questions or any issues that might arise during transit. Our experience has been nothing but positive; our rep is quick to answer any question we might have and is on top of things to make sure everything is on time and running smoothly.” 

  • Saul Ramirez, Dispatch Manager, American Eagle Transport, Inc. 

“Our Echo team is very professional and accessible. They seem to understand our network well and only present valid/viable opportunities. Our company focuses on technology, efficiency, eliminating waste and redundancy. The EDI and supported platforms used by Echo transition very well into our automated workflow, so there is no additional work needed to service their accounts.” 

  • Tammy Hobbs, Operations Manager – long haul division, G&D Integrated Transportation, Inc. 

“Working with Echo, and Mike Grove in particular, has been a fantastic experience. Mike plays a pivotal role in keeping our trucks moving and our drivers happy. Mike’s attention to detail and easy-to-work-with personality helps put our drivers in favorable scenarios, while his tireless work ethic has gotten them out of plenty of unfavorable ones. Mike is an integral part of what we strive to achieve here at Longistics, and we are thankful and proud to be an Echo Carrier of the Quarter!”  

  • Alec Kammerer, Transportation Coordinator/Planner, Longistics 

“In these 8 plus years working with Echo we’ve progressed and grown our relationship in a positive, balanced, professional manner and have maintained a win-win mindset.” 

  • Erika Ramos, Operations Manager, Freightsol, LLC
