Customer Satisfaction

We achieve customer satisfaction by providing quality service, on-going communication, and implementing a vetting process to identify quality carriers. Further we hold drivers to the highest standards of professionalism and excellence to protect your brand.

We understand the contract and operations requirements of the Postal Service such as on-time pick-ups and deliveries; knowing that even one minute late is late and unacceptable. For mail loads, we require fair and Service Contract Act compliant pay to our brokered drivers.

Helping you meet all contract service requirements with high quality, on-time service. Our team works with the Postal Service on daily basis just like you. We do business based on transparency, honesty and communication. We do not contract directly with the Postal Service, we support those who do.

Cathie Leigh Inc

*Federal SCA Service Contract Act [Driver Wage Determination] Compliant

 In addition to having our partner carriers sign an iron clad Carrier Contract Addendum outlining service requirements and performance expectations, we provide a driver(s) settlement worksheet based on actual driver logs HOS that breaks down the carrier's legal obligation to federally determined minimum driver / labor wage requirements according to the SCA and current wage determination for whatever contract / region they are servicing. To further ensure compliance that ALL drivers are being compensated at or above the established minimum wages as required by federal law, we have all partner carriers sign an agreement to comply and all drivers must submit service logs with HOS and sign off on the Driver Settlement Worksheets confirming all hours and the minimum compensation associated with that contracted work for each tender. 


DOT & FMCSA Compliant

 Only Partner Carriers that demonstrate committed compliance with all DOT (Department of Transportation) and FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Saftey Administration) rules, regulations, and mandates are sourced. Our Partner Carriers hold some of the highest fitness and saftey scores in the country and if there is a violation they are required to submit a letter of corrective action along with references and be able to illustrate a plan to improve their overall scores
