My name is Marold O. 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 visionary 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.

Our firm celebrates forty-five (45+) years in the transportation industry as the successor of 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.  Now, TFS is regarded as a top-level producer of commercial surety/bond providers, and “Master Referral Agent”.  We are very familiar with the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) compliance requirements.  We’ve established ourselves in a service-oriented industry, and we 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 existing open communication with the FMCSA and the DOT.  The most recent example is the “Cancellation Policy” introduced by our firm “TFS” and implements by the FMCSA and DOT to protect the interest of carriers, freight brokers, freight forwarders and shippers. Just remember: One Call does it ALL.
