TESTIMONIALS

TOMRA manages a variety of trade shows each year, so finding a reputable and professional freight company to ensure our machines and booth crates arrive safely and on time is critical. Knowing that I can count on CTS to provide me with the best possible pricing and the professional support we require before, during and after each trade show, allows me to focus on all of the other details that I have to get done.    

 

CTS has provided us with full service trade show freight support for the past 5 years and handles 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.
