Our co-founder, Thomas Guthrie (deceased) had over 45 years of experience going back to 1954 when he served in the capacity of Assistant to the President of C/B Guthrie Tariff Bureau.  In 1974 Mr. Guthrie moved to California to work at Miller Traffic Services Inc. before eventually starting a transportation consultation firm, Guthrie & Associates in 1975.  Mr. Guthrie appeared as an expert witness on several cases and wrote “The Freight Brokers Handbook”.  In 2009 Mr. Guthrie started Transport Financial Services, LLC with the intent to share his 45 years of transportation experience with his customers. When Mr. Guthrie passed away, Mr. Marold Studesville who had been working with Mr. Guthrie moved into the position of CEO & Owner of Transport Financial Services, LLC.
