Risky Business

Sylectus...the Alliance well worth joining

Hi Everyone, I just returned from the GPS Net Conference in Amelia Island, FL (Yes, it was wonderful to go someplace quasi warm!).  Stu Sutton & his staff ran an excellent event as usual.

If you're not familiar, his innovative "Alliance" software launched an "industry first" web-based solution that revolutionized transportation management systems to move freight across North America.

He continues to excel at bringing together numerous competitive Expediting Motor Carriers to work together to mutually benefit professionally, socially and financially through his "virtual freight" concept.

It seems like everyone who joins his group grows their operations if my data on their growing insurance is any indication.

So "heads up" to anyone who should belong and doesn't already, check out their new name for GPS Net, "Sylectus".  Stu will get you hooked up with the "Who's Who" in Expediting, at www.Sylectus.com

Business is on the upswing...don't miss the upcoming surge, guys!

Warm Regards, Shelly

    Dan-=|=-Service is basically created for brokers. It's a waste of 6k for registration and 300 dollars every month. Most of the loads that are posted there are not real loads. They are a requests of qoutes from customers. Some of the loads are real but at that point people negotiate price tremendously. Bid board is a fraud. Even if u'd give lowest price you still wount win a load.
