Check out what some of our customers are saying about us:

We started using EPES in April 2022, and the service has been fantastic. The rates are in line with the industry standards or better. Joyce Young has been a great resource for us. She has taken the time to answer questions and made us feel like we are her only customer. The team that handles our account on a day-to-day basis, led by Courtney Thrift is truly incredible. I highly recommend EPES Logistics.

Bob A.

I wanted to take a minute and let you know about two of your fantastic employees.  The first employee Ernessa, I have worked with her on nearly a daily basis. We address any issues and she is always understanding of the situation and comes through with a solution. Great attitude, she is great with the drivers, and she’s very efficient!

The second employee Mr. Rodgers, is an after hours employee. I had to reach out to him last night over a delivery number and its always a dread to call a broker after hours. However, he was so polite, understanding, and offered all options. We worked through the issue and made the driver and the customer happy. It has been a pleasure working with your company and I wanted to take the time to recognize these two for a job well done and making the trucking world a better place!

Jeanne P.

“This company is amazing. I have read other reviews and felt compelled to write my own.  They have truly exceptional service and their communication is excellent.  Since we started using them we have had no issues, and they have removed all stress from importing our products.  They give us timely quotes, that have been spot on and they also work with our manufacturer and coordinate all aspects of the shipments.  Some shipments have even been ahead of schedule, and if there are any delays they alert us immediately.  I am very thankful we have them as a partner. If you want stress free shipping I would highly recommend their services.”

Jennifer S.

“I’ve been booking loads from Epes for quite some time now and haven’t had any issues so far. Every agent I’ve booked with has been professional and honest about their freight and they pay decent too.”

Shirley G.

“Excellent broker to work with! Cindy and April are amazing and I have never had any problems working with Epes :)”

Holly H.

“As a carrier, I love to work with you. Your brokers are polite and easy to work with, especially Mrs. Brittany F (for me you are 5-star broker). Whenever we have any problem with the shippers-you respond really fast and successfully.  I wish all other brokers were just like you.”

Malgorzata M.

“We have used Epes Logistics for almost 2 years. We find their personnel to be professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. We have received fair rates and have been paid promptly for the loads we have hauled. In our opinion, Epes Logistics is a well run professional logistics company.”

Dan C.

“I have never had a problem with Epes. They have taken care of me and my business every time. I have never had an issue with booking loads with Epes.”

Scott H.

“Hello everyone. I would like to share my experience with this company. EPES LOGISTICS IS DOING A GREAT JOB! It’s the most awesome company I worked with. From a scale of 1-10. I’ll rate them 20 because they’re beyond my expectation. I truly love EPES LOGISTICS! Especially the broker named Carissa. They are the most accommodating staff and they will surely help you whenever you have some queries. Please continue working with EPES logistics! Thank you and God bless us all.”

Wella L.

We work with EPES LOGISTICS Monday through Friday, great rates!!! I salute my brokers Melissa, Hunter and Billy. You guys are very organized, straight forward, polite, honest and quick to respond. We really appreciate doing business with you!

Adams P.

“The entire team goes above and beyond. They ensure my drivers and team at Georgia Southern have all the correct information needed to perform our duties. Super nice team and they understand that in the transportation industry things happen ( Breakdowns, traffic, Late loading and unloading ) so they work with you to ensure when you are trying to over come those obstacles you will always have first hand info on every aspect of your load. Top shelf group at Epes.”
