It is with pleasure and ease that I submit this recommendation email for ET Transportation. ET has been servicing Eastman Kodak successfully for 3+ years and has done so with great success.
OTP has been at 99% and they have yet to let us down. Even during times of additional volume or late notice, ET will come through with support and at fair cost. Besides good performance, their integrity is extremely high and they stand by their commitments.

ET maintains some of the highest positive service metrics consistently throughout the year. With multiple changes in the market, they have stood true to their commitments while remaining a valued partner. From shipments to consulting, ET has always supported us above and beyond.
