Barnes Business Spotlight


GOODMAN MANUFACTURING

 

Goodman Manufacturing in Waller, TX is Barnes' largest Western US shipper and the OB (outbound) from their facility is the cornerstone of our Texas market!


Goodman makes a wide variety of heating and air conditioning products and ships up to 160 loads per day using about 80 carriers. Barnes currently has a goal of moving a minimum of 20 loads per week and hopes to grow our commitment with them. They have recently agreed to use Barnes Solutions Brokerage service in addition to fleet assets.


The Barnes-Goodman relationship began in 2018 with moving a few loads per week and now, in 2022, that relationship is stronger than ever due in no small part by the performance of our Territory Manager, Courtnie Clark and her team!


Goodman Manufacturing was founded in 1975 and has over 5,000 employees located throughout the USA.
