"I work as SVP of Trade and Business Development at the Port of Saint John. I've had the good fortune to work with Dave and his team at Blacks for more than three decades now, over the span of my career to date. The experience is always good, and the personal concern and service is second to none in the industry. They take their commitments very seriously, and they provide exceptional service and reliability at market competitive rates. Blacks is an asset to our local logistics industry and one of my first calls when we are looking to set up a new business through the port that requires inland logistics support. Honesty and integrity that you can count on. No games, just great service and rates. Congratulations to Dave and everyone at Blacks on your first 50 years in trucking. We all look forward to counting on Blacks for the next 50!"

"We have had the pleasure of dealing with Blacks Transfer for over 20 years now. We are a rebar fabrication yard which requires us to fabricate to their trailers, therefore requiring the trailers to be in our yard days in advance before shipping to site. We’ve been through a lot of the challenges of today’s increased safety jobsite requirements for loading and unloading of steel from the rails into our yard and we even had to modify their trailers to accommodate the safety requirements for a particular jobsite. All of these changes were met with the upmost enthusiasm to accommodate us. It is obvious that this very close knit, family run business takes pride in their work. They have always had the best customer service and they really take the time to see that your company’s needs are fulfilled. It has been a very positive experience working with Blacks and we hope to continue for many years to come."
"Cavendish Produce and Blacks Transfer Ltd have been doing business for 20 years and for 13 of those I have been the main contact point for our company. Over these years Blacks main job with us is container service from PEI – NB and sometimes NS back to the port in Saint John NB . We try to do at least 1 load per day for 5 days a week but sometimes it is more than the 5 loads per week . Over the last number of years we have also used them for a cross-dock facility at their location in Saintt John where we would bring full loads of produce or potatoes to them on reefer trailers and they would cross-dock them into containers and return them to the port . This proves to be a nice plus for us because of their location and their willingness to help where things come up where we are tight on time to try and make the ship on time for departure ( Such things like container shortage or lack of time are examples ) . Just recently we had to move a load of equipment from Maine to O’Leary PEI and required a flatbed and they made it happen
When you are looking to work with a trucking company you want a dependable company with competitive rates , flexible to changes , good equipment that is run by professional drivers and people that are easy to communicate with and easy to reach and they have all those traits
The fact that in the last couple of years alone they have celebrated 50 Years in business and have won 2 major awards from the Port of Saint John and the Atlantic Trucking Association shows the dedication and hard work that Dave , his family and team have put into making them a successful trucking company in a very tough industry .
The one thing that made them successful and sets them apart from most companies is they are a family business and are heavily involved every day with the company so they know that the decisions they make will determine how long they will continue to be successful and still maintain the respect and trust they built over the last 50 years."
"Jolly Farmer has used the services of Blacks Transfer located in Saint John, New Brunswick since the year 2000. Every year they haul tractor trailer loads of plants for us into the US and deliver them to our customers there. They are a very professional company and are the trucking company of choice for us when we need help. We would highly recommend them to anybody needing their services."

"Blacks Transfer Ltd. has provided service to Connors Bros. for many years and based on their exemplary performance, we approached them about taking a more active role in our companies transportation needs in 2006.
Since that time, Blacks Transfer has been everything that a carrier should be. They have provided professional, reliable, on-time service and have always been flexible should our shipping needs change or our production schedule be altered. The staff, at Black's Transfer, has always been available and approachable in dealing with any queries or issues that may arise. Black's Transfer have been more than just another carrier, they have become a trusted business partner that has been genuinely interested in our companies needs. Their familiarity with our operation has allowed them to meet, and often anticipate our needs before we have the opportunity to contact them.
I can, without hesitation or prejudice, recommend them as a first rate carrier."
