    Total Quality Logistics? More like Total ######## Logistics.

    We booked a load with them, supposed to be nice easy 1P1D. I get to the shipper, and thats when i get a call from them saying, "hey it's actually 2 pick." It was 70 miles to the opposite direction I was supposed to go. Got new rate conf for that, okay, fine. But now delivery time was gonna be tighter than 5 stack of condoms. So we emailed to reschedule and heard nothing back from 'em. I called and was told a time window. Barely arrived on time, but there was no one at the receiver to unload me(was the weekend). So I requested for layover, via email and not a bleep. I called for layover, broke cut me off and told me he'd call me back, and SOB didn't call me back. I call again next day, he telling me different time window than what he originally told me, and saying it's my fault for not arriving on time. What?
    So I said, nah. I need that layover. And he finally agreed to send me new rate conf, and we hung up.
    Guess what? He didn't send anything yet. WTF is this?

    There is definitely a need for another subsection in this Freight Broker section entitled "TQL. The masters of deception"
    And social media work. I haven't booked anything from them for the last 12 months...They never really did me any harm except that in the last load they did not want hear anything about detention which would have been symbolic anyway but it rubbed me the wrong way. Now they call from Milford OH every day or more like diarrhea. Maybe if they were good then they would not need to call around like that and people would call them instead. Hugh?

    Such a nice business name...Total Quality Logistics and all that bad press in Social Media to tarnish it. But it cannot be completely unfounded. After all you don't hear all that much crap about CH Robinson, XPO, Coyotes or JB Hunt. Maybe they are only bad to their carriers and exceptionally good to their customers which would mean that the carriers are nothing but means to an end. I don't want to be looked upon like I am a mere brush in a hand of a painter. Be it an artist or a wall painter.

    Any company that has to make a big positive statement in their name makes me nervous. Sorts like “King of Freight” and the likes.

    Reminds me of Stratton Oakmont with the big Lion. ;)
