    Customer Testimonials

    WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY...
    American Cast Iron Pipe Company
    Dave R., Distribution Manager
    It is an absolute pleasure to speak with Four Star’s knowledgeable and professional management team. In working with their logistics/dispatching department, I have found them to resourcefully and effectively work with me in securing trucks/trailers to cover pipe loads to our customers. Their drivers are respectful, courteous, and they represent Four Star Transportation very well. In speaking with their drivers, management treats their employees with the same degree of respect and appreciation they give to others. Our company is thankful to be part of Four Star Transportation’s vision for Quality Service.
    Echo Global Logistics
    Steve G., Logistics Manager
    I have been working with Four Star for over two and a half years now, averaging multiple loads per week. They have been a great help when I needed them most. I know they have other customers besides myself, so I can't expect them to handle all my freight, but they always do their best to accommodate my needs. It also helps to have a personal one on one with dispatch (Andrea and Damien) out of Four Star’s West Branch, Michigan Terminal, I work with them the most. Great service and looking for another great year. Thanks for all of your help!
    Tri-State Forest Products
    Lance S., Branch Manager
    Four Star does a great job. I know when I book a load with Four Star it will be handled safely and efficiently.

    We always have a need for safe, professional drivers who want to earn more and be home on weekends and throughout the week!
