I’ve had the pleasure of being a business associate of Peter Marchica since the mid 80’s. During this time he has always been a stand-up guy with integrity and a high sense of loyalty.
As the founder of Bruin Express Intermodal, Peter was able to take his vast experience and values, which has been embodied in the fabric of his company.
In the process of creating one of the premier drayage companies in Southern California, Mr. Marchica was able to develop a rising star in the transportation industry, his very own son, Michael Marchica; who is poised to advance Bruin Express Intermodal to the next level…
The future for Bruin Express Intermodal is very bright!
Approved Freight Forwarders is honored to have Bruin Express Intermodal as a strategic business partner.
Thank you for your wonderful service…

"Bruin Express is more than just a carrier to YUSEN Logistics, they are a true partner and an extension of our company. When we use Bruin our business is handled with world class service at an exceptional value."

"I have been associated with Bruin Express Intermodal for almost 15 years and during that time, the pricing, service, and shipper/carrier relationship has been exceptional.  Pete and his staff is more than a vendor, they are personal friends that I respect and trust to handle my freight.  Their commitment of thinking outside of the box can be explained by looking back on a situation when our company was having a difficult time securing a carrier in Southern, CA to pick up an extremely time sensitive load destined for Chicago, IL. I called Pete and explained that we needed his help to satisfy our client.  Within an hour Pete had secured a team of two local drivers, made the pickup same day and delivered the load to Chicago within 48 hours. I might add that the pricing for this was extremely competitive. We worked together and found his drivers a load back to California and together, we were whole on the round trip.  I have been in this business since 1987 and you will not find a more honest group than the one that Pete has assembled at Bruin Express."

Our mission is to provide the shipping community with a high quality drayage carrier that is national in scope, while offering value added services to enhance our customer’s logistics experience.
I have known Pete Marchica for over 30 years and our company has worked with Bruin Express Intermodal for the past 20 years. Our business relationship has been both as carrier as well as a customer for Cal State Xpress. This family owned company is honest, reliable and a pleasure to do business with.  I strongly recommend Bruin to anyone needing quality on time service at an affordable price."
