I have partnered with Ed for over 15 years. I appreciate the extra effort that he gives in trying to provide a solution for my specific shipping needs. Ed takes the time to find the right answer for me.

Jim B.

As a manager faced with daily needs in multiple modes of transport, I have always found Burns Logistics Solutions to be extremely responsive and resourceful. They are always willing to take the time to understand the customers’ needs, but even more important, Ed also uses the relationship to better understand shipper processes and to continually expand his own knowledge of the industry. This investment of time and true interest in his clients are a rare combination in today’s transportation environment. While my partnership with Ed was initially in the LTL arena, it has grown into substantial truckload volumes, and has touched Dedicated, Refrigerated and other specialty moves in the past few years. I certainly expect this partnership to be maintained moving forward!

Exceptional Customer Service would be my first words to describe Burns Logistics Solutions. That is why they are the first carrier in my ‘rolodex’. I have called upon them to service my LTL, regional, and national TL needs. BLS has even provided me with specialty services including Hazmat shipments and trailer staging for events. One call does it all…

John R. Schlegel - NE Regional Manager - AERC Recycling Solutions

Ed, Just wanted to reach out to you and thank you for everything you have done for us. We have provided you with some challenges that were steep and not able to be handled by companies we have been dealing with for years. Each challenge we presented to you was handled immediately, professionally and cost-effectively. In our business, freight is time-sensitive and must be cost-effective, and each time you deliver. Thanks for all your help and we look forward to working with you in greater capacity in the future.
