"I am writing to tell you about the wonderful service provdided to us by Mainfreight in Connecticut. I have not encountered one person who has not gone over and beyond the call of duty to assist in our shipping needs, everything from scheduling pickups at the last minute to generating airway bills for us. Also, they are on top of our shipments at all times whether it's to and from Malaysia or right here in the USA. I hope you can let them know how much we appreciate them." -Steve
