Shipping Wars

Shipping Wars


Each episode of “Shipping Wars” dives into the cutthroat world of these heavy-duty movers as they battle for the chance to transport the unshippable. The competition begins with uShip, the world’s largest online auction house for independent truckers. Every day, thousands of shipments are put up for auction. The battle is fierce as the movers have only minutes to bid, and the lowest bidder gets the load.
From oversized loads and bulky packages to the truly bizarre, these shippers will haul anything if the price is right. The high-stakes race is on as they set out to deliver the loads in time, and any setback can cost big bucks.
From rookie haulers to seasoned veterans, no shipment is too big for these professionals to handle. Marc Springer has been shipping less than a year but he clearly has a knack for the business. He always manages to keep his 18-wheel tractor trailer full, and looks for nothing but the biggest, “baddest” loads he can find. Rookie Jennifer Brennan may be new to the shipping world, but she’s about as tough and competitive as they come. She began her career transporting farm animals across the country, but her typical shipments have expanded to be just about anything from a water buffalo to a million-dollar Ferrari. Jarrett Joyce has only been in the business for a few months, but he’s never one to shy away from a unique load. He’s shipped everything from kittens to a hot dog stand to a Civil War cannon. Know-it-all Roy Garber has two years of experience under his belt. A serious handyman, he’s never found a load he couldn’t tackle, and this determination has made him one of the top earners in the country. Veteran shippers Scott and Suzanne Bawcom may seem like your typical suburban couple, but they are anything but ordinary. A former bomb squad specialist, Scott spent his pre-shipping days defusing bombs in Iraq for the Marines, and he’s not the kind of guy to run away from a challenge. For the Bawcoms, shipping is a family business. While Scott hauls shipments across the country, Suzanne bids and books loads constantly.
“Shipping Wars” is produced by Megalomedia for A&E Network. Executive producer is Jonathan Nowzaradan. Co-executive producers are Tom Mireles, Jeff Keels and Graham Davidson. A&E executive producers are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Neil A. Cohen. (Source: AETV)

This show is a commercial for UShipRating: 0 likes, 1 dislikes

I have been a ownwer/driver for over 30 years. Neither my husband, nor I have EVER been late or had a damage claim. There are NO truck drivers in their right mind that would bid on anything as low as they bid or, as far away as the loads are. It's so funny. In the REAL world, you try to find loads that are close to where you're empty, that pay as much as you can get per mile (especially, since fuel is outrageously high!). If you're average rate per mile isn't between $2.50 & $3, for long hauls, you are generally going in the hole! AND, you certainly wouldn't accept a load without the EXACT dimensions/weight. These idiots are getting paid by the show, in addition to what the loads pay, or they couldn't do it! UShip charges you 5% for every load you book through them, so, unless you way overbid on a load, you wouldn't really want to haul through them. Shippers (ie: general public) will get a bad impression of how things work from this show, for sure! It's just a comedy! I think Roy is hysterical! Jennifer is an airhead, and an embarassment to truck drivers. Jarret has NO clue. Marc MAY be OK but underbids everything. (How can he be late, when he had 5 days to go only 3000 miles?) Jury is still out on the couple with the hotshot. Have to be in the mood to watch it often enough! LOL! Read more
