Southern Charm

When it comes to relationships with our carriers, we take an old-fashioned, long-term approach.  Read why one of our carriers is a fan of our representatives’ old-school Southern charm:  Our trucking company has worked with Matchmaker Logistics for more than a decade.  Just like Matchmaker, we are also a family-owned and operated business.  And just like us, Matchmaker is dedicated to building strong, personal relationships in the industry.  Our office team and our drivers especially enjoy working with Mary and Pam, the Carrier Sales Representatives.  You don’t find such polite, caring, and understanding Southern belles

We’re Not a Cheap Date: Episode III

At Matchmaker, we approach every business transaction with a commitment to a long-term relationship; we don’t believe in acting like a cheap date, a casual fling or one-night stand.  In the last half of the year, we decided to have a little fun with a “cheap date horrors” contest:  Congratulations to Bridgett Cannady who won the contest with this entry: Proms don’t have to be overpriced!! When I was in high school, a couple from our school went out to eat at McDonalds before the prom.  McDonalds was conveniently located across the street from the convention center

Santa’s Not the Only One Who Makes House Calls

“Matchmaker Logistics is by far the best trucking broker we have found.  Everyone in my office knows that Matchmaker Logistics is our go-to company for moving freight because they have consistently proven themselves to be dependable, trustworthy, and completely committed to us as customers.  Jim Skane even traveled from NC to our CT home office to pay us a personal visit.  No other company has shown such a strong interest in partnering with us and meeting our needs-on time, every time.”  – Dan Roy, CRF Interiors

We’re Not a Cheap Date: Episode II

Worried that his son was spending too much money on dates, Junior’s father asked his son how much his last date had cost.    Junior calculated a minute then replied:  “Somewhere around $15, I think.”  “Well,” said his father, “I’m proud of you for finally coming up with an inexpensive evening.”    “To be honest Dad,” Junior went on, “we’d have done more, but that was all the money she had.”     At Matchmaker, we approach every business transaction with a commitment to a long-term relationship; we don’t believe in acting like a cheap date, a

The title comes from Thompson’s early years in school where he

Looking for a Halloween Costume?

In a recent blog post, we talked about those “one-night-stand” companies, the fly-by-night operations that leave customers and clients feeling jilted. With 30 years of experience in the industry, we believe that experience, customer service and integrity are what count when it comes to freight brokerage. The only time we want anything to do with a one-night-stand is when it comes in the form of a clever Halloween costume! We had a feeling you’d agree. Look closely, and you’ll notice this one-night stand comes complete with accessories, including a pack of cigarettes and a lipstick-kissed note
