"CTS has provided us with full service trade show freight support for the last decade. They handle all freight-related matters from start to finish. Working with them has been such a pleasure. They are professional, they care about their customers and they're there whenever I need them, even on weekends. Having this kind of peace of mind and knowing that our machines and multiple booth crates are being well taken care of during the entire process is extremely valuable to me. I can’t imagine doing a trade show without them."
