ASF is a fantastic logistics partner to Haverty Furniture Companies, Inc. They provide a single point of contact that cares about our business and takes time to know us and all of our quirks. The leadership at ASF is second to none and always knows the latest happenings in the market. They're always fair with rates and typically lower than other NVO’s. I can’t say enough good things about ASF and highly recommend them.
