What Our Clients
Are Saying About Us

We at Transportation Logistics Systems are loyal to our customers, and similarly many are loyal to us. Numerous times our customers have expressed their appreciation for our customer service, cost savings they realized, or making the effort to go the extra mile for them – things that they hadn’t received elsewhere.

Helzberg Diamonds

Customers sometimes are quite surprised at the savings we can offer them. A purchasing agent for Helzberg Diamonds thanked TLSI in a letter, "Let me take this opportunity to thank you for your updated proposal, reflecting annual savings of 18.6% in shipping costs." Barnett Helzberg, founder, added, "Wow! Congrats, Melody!"

This is a good example how a smaller company is beneficial to its clients. We can act quickly to serve the needs of our customers without having to go through seven layers of management.

Melody WarrenFounder and President of TLSI

Sometimes going above and beyond is the natural thing to do… especially in an emergency. After the 9/11 incident, our largest customer called to ask us to expedite their payroll checks to their local plant in Kansas City (where TLSI happens to be located.) That day it was impossible to provide the service, since virtually all modes of expedited transportation was shut down. They couldn’t wire transfer the money, since some of their employees didn’t have bank accounts. TLSI chose to step up to the plate and typed 60 paychecks from its own bank account to cover the payroll. A grateful customer reimbursed TLSI shortly thereafter.

This company was the producer of the Lincoln Blackwood truckbed, a division of a $60 billion company based in Austria. Says the local manager, “The performance of TLSI has been consistently outstanding in all respects. We at Magna Steyr feel that they are an integral part of our team.”

In 1999 I conducted an extensive review of dedicated carriers. After my initial review, I reduced the candidates to five finalists. After visiting each carrier, and several rounds of interviews, I selected Transportation Logistics Systems for my outbound, dedicated box truck freight. In 2000, I began similar review of LTL freight, beginning with a study of over fifteen different common carriers and freight brokers. TLS had done such a great job with our dedicated box shipments; they only needed to be competitive to win the business. Since then, TLSI has not only maintained both LTL and dedicated box shipments for my outbound freight, we have begun to use them for our inbound shipments as well. We have also instructed our suppliers handling third party shipments on our behalf to use TLSI for our freight. We could not be happier with TLSI performance over the last several years.
