Consistency is the biggest issue today for agricultural transport – we need steady work. I like how Indigo Transport handles the business for us. When they find something in the area, I get the whole contract at once. With other companies, there are a lot of hoops you have to jump through to get the ball rolling. I didn’t have to go through all that with Indigo Transport – the account manager did exactly what he said he was going to do.

I believe that Indigo Marketplace represents the future of grain trading. The current system is inefficient and doesn’t leverage technologies that are widely used across other industries. Indigo has the resources to lead this change and is creating a future where growers can earn more and buyers can bring high quality, IP grain to end-users.

Indigo Transport is flexible and can give us what we want. Our logistics account manager has been very helpful. A lot of times, customers call and ask about loads over and over again, but, with Indigo Transport, I got one email with all of the information I needed.
