    Looking for input before I start cold calling companies.
    What shippers should I avoid?
    Any shippers stand out to anyone?

    Mostly hauling power only but I do have a flatbed and access to a reefer.

    Time to eliminate the brokers.

    I give new meaning to “cold calling”.

    There are sometimes short KY runs for that big manufacturer in Georgetown.

    I send the request in. I assume it’s going to be like Walmart and have a minimum truck requirement. ( FYI for everyone Walmart is 15 truck min)

    Hopefully that works out for you. You might consider shuttling containers as well.
