This is prevalent in their employee and customer base, delivering high levels of customer service and loyalty,” said Rick Farrow, Chairman of Farrow.
“As a company, International Freight Systems (of Washington) LLC shares the same principles as Farrow, as best illustrated in our tagline, ‘Peace of Mind. Delivered.’ Farrow looks forward to welcoming International Freight Systems employees into the Farrow family and carrying on the long standing tradition of excellence that Shelley and Joe have worked so hard to create.”
“Our motto at International Freight Systems (of Washington) LLC has always been, Your freight is Our Freight, said Shelley Moine, President of International Freight Systems (of Washington) LLC. “We treat each shipment with the utmost care as if it is our own. My team is proud to have carried that sentiment for the past 26 years and I feel Farrow will continue to work with the same morals and integrity.
