Transport Financial Services has an elaborate cohesive network of transportation professionals nationwide working to establish that one-on-one business relationship with its clients where you are a name, not a MC/DOT number.  Where your needs are met, and industry standards remain compliant with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Department of Transportation (DOT).
Licensed transportation consultants appraise your business concerns and assist in designing tailored programs to fit your needs.  The TFS objective is to provide the most efficient plan to help better manage your business.


Our firm celebrates forty-seven (47+) years in the transportation industry as the successor of Mr. Guthrie Transportation Consultants, established in 1974 by my deceased partner. After nearly a decade of the contract of contract administration with the General Service Administration (GSA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). We joined an alliance with a cohesive team of transportation professionals. TFS is regarded as a top-level producer of commercial surety/bond providers and a “Master Referral Agent.” We follow the ruling of the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) compliance requirements. We’ve established ourselves in a service-oriented industry and are a “One-Stop Shop” for all Transportation professionals and companies.

We meet logistic needs under the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) for motor carriers, freight brokers, freight forwarders, and shippers. We add value to the industry based on our open communication with the FMCSA and the DOT. The most recent example is the “Cancellation Policy” introduced by our firm “TFS” and implemented by the FMCSA and DOT to protect the interest of carriers, freight brokers, freight forwarders, and shippers.

The TFS Team

Marold Studesville


My name is Marold Studesville, Owner and CEO of Transport Financial Services, LLC (TFS), an acknowledged surety provided by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) of the full range of legal, administrative, and operational resources necessary for the success of Brokers, Shippers, Motor Carriers, and Freight Forwarders.

As a retired veteran, having served twenty-eight (28) years in the U. S. Army and a credentialed educator, my true vision has been realized by bringing an old transportation industry into the 21st Century. My diverse military career was directly linked to data analysis and developing proactive data monitoring solutions. It was a natural progression upon retiring in 2003 to transcend this knowledge into my next vocation, a career in transportation, and establish a transportation platform to meet the needs of Carriers, Brokers, Shippers, and Freight Forwarders.
