Agents - Testimonials
"Our experience with S.P.I. International Transportation has been nothing short of spectacular. The SPI team and network of the other offices has made us a leader in the transportation industry. The ongoing improvement with our in-house software, open communication with manage
ment and staff, and respect for our customers and vendors, are our most effective strengths in our business. These attributes have made working with SPI an enjoyable experience. The integrity of SPI has not been matched or even challenged by any other employer we have ever experienced.
We decided to join the SPI team in 2005; we knew that we would need to work hard and be smart at attaining customers. When we joined SPI, we were advised that typically it takes between 2 to 3 years to solidify our business. SPI was exactly right, between the 2nd and 3rd year our business had grown into a successful residual source of fun and income.
Before joining SPI, it was essentially paycheck to paycheck, with little saving in between. I was essentially making someone else rich. I had enough of it and thought I could do this for myself. SPI was a good fit in attaining our goals -- last year we were able to enjoy some luxuries in life with being able to have the quality time to attend all of our children's functions. I also had time to coach baseball and tackle football, increasing our quality of life overall. Last year we were able to afford putting an addition onto our house. There was also room in the budget for a sports car for myself. I really don't believe we would have been able to attain these in this early stage of our lives, should we have stayed with the jobs we had.
To the new SPI agents, I recommend attending the weekly sales meetings as we have definitely benefitted from them. Keep cold calling in a smart, tactful way. Never take customers for granted, and keep trying to attain more customers. If you keep focused with this business and work hard and smart, you will definitely secure an above-average income and increase the quality of life for you and your family. Be patient and stay focused."

"I love the company. Everyone is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. People go out of their way to try and help you when in need. Even during difficult situations, SPI International Transportation staff understood and worked with me to solve issues, making me feel like not just part of the company but part of the family. I see myself being here until I retire."
Arica M. - SPI Agent in Louisiana
"Before I was a SPI Agent, I was a truck driver for 2 decades. I was constantly away from my family and friends. Becoming an Agent has opened doors for me by being able to socialize and meet people, and helped me to develop better relationships personally and professionally. SPI International Transportation has been instrumental in my achieving my goal of managing my own business, by always working to assist me as an Agent, and being very informative on how to grow as the trucking industry changes. I have really enjoyed my partnership here."

"I joined the SPI International Transportation team recently and it is nothing short of being one of the greatest brokerage operations in the world. SPI International Transportation is truly a first class company that takes great pride in building strong relationships not only with their Agents, but also with each transportation vendor. The internal support from day to day admin tasks, to cutting edge technology have been a major asset in developing my business. In my opinion, there is no questions that SPI International Transportation is a leader in the freight brokerage industry."
John B. - SPI Agent in Ontario
"After starting in 1992, with the cliche of the "early bird gets the worm" implanted in our daily routine, it wasn't long before we hit a "home-run" with an account, which the monthly commission for our office was a yearly income for most people. Today we have 5 people in our brokerage office and have 4 of our own trucks running for our carrier division at the present time, and are looking to add more. We are really fortunate to have SPI International Transportation as a partner. This affiliation has helped us to be successful "in getting our worm" and we are very, very happy to be a part of the SPI family."

"In 1996, I was offered the opportunity to join SPI International Transportation and I knew they had a good reputation. It was a smooth transition. As the business expanded I found myself hiring an additional staff member to help in operations, dispatch and sales.
Today I continue on with yet another expansion phase of my business. Working with SPI has allowed me more time with my family and other projects, while attaining enough business to grow without a ceiling.
This business has allowed me to live my life the way I want to (volunteering to other places, and spending quality time with my family and friends). SPI International Transportation's willingness to take me on has helped me continue growing and I look forward to an exciting future."
Glenn H. - SPI Agent in Alberta North
"If someone would have told me a year and a half ago that I would be running a successful, lucrative business, I wouldn't have believed them. The company I worked for closed its doors, my son graduated and moved away and I was at a loss of what to do. A family member introduced me to SPI and within a couple days of observing, I knew I could do it.
With the help and support of my incredible family and the SPI family, I am working from home, exceeding my goals and making more money than ever before. I am truly happy and can't thank everyone enough who has helped me accomplish so much in such little time. It's safe to say, I will retire with SPI."
