“Hemisphere have always delivered a reliable, friendly and honest service. I get regular updates on my shipments, their rates are competitive, and I know the team is only ever a phone call or email away. Everyone at Hemisphere understands how we work, which really helps, and it’s far easier having everything covered by one agent.”
