Now Playing: Shipping Wars Season Premiere & uShip’s Roy Tribute


Fans of A&E original hit series Shipping Wars—which features uShip—will be thrilled to know a new season kicks off tomorrow night at 10/9c on A&E. In case you haven’t watched the show, it follows a group of independent transporters as they haul seemingly unshippable items to every corner of the country.

This the first season since the sudden passing of Roy Garber, 49, one of the original cast members who died of a heart attack in January, just days after the Season 5 finale. Check out uShip’s tribute to Roy below.

Shipping Wars veterans Marc Springer, Jennifer Brennan and Jarrett Joyce return to the show. In the season premiere, Jarrett struggles with a giant 40-foot plaster colon and it’s hardly a smooth move. Later this season, Jenn ships a collection of haunted dolls and Marc battles tornado-spawning weather as he hauls a heavy load.

Joining Marc, Jenn and Jarrett are 4 new cast members:

Dusty Davies

Shipping since age 16, Davies comes from a big trucking family and now owns one of the largest heavy hauling trucking companies in the Midwest.

Jessica Samko

After breaking up with her boyfriend, Samko founded her own trucking business and is willing to haul anything she can get her hands on.

Todd & Tamera Sturgis

As a shipping power couple, this duo have been driving trucks together for 20 years and cross the country every other week hauling whatever their dispatcher throws at them.

    Uship IS the real thing with REAL people!!!! Uship saved my daughter and my SUV from the ‘thug ravaged streets’ of Phoenix AZ. Within 12 hours my daughter and my SUV were on their way back home 1200 miles away–safe and sound!! Uship took care of me faster than a clerk in a convenience store. So, for all you truckers who think they’re not–clean up you’re own back yard before you start condemning others. I thank god for Uship, and I’m sure other mothers will too.
    Thank you Uship, for being there–now that’s a trucker!!!!!! And they got heart!!!!

    Jessica samko is a rude, loud and offensive person and should e replaced along with that loud stupid dusty!

    • jr

      Ya that dusty and jessica are always nasty and abusive to their customers they should be replaced with a more respectful and nice people. The other shippers on the show are nice and appealing.

  • Vhonda

    Is it my imagination!!!! Who else think Jessica Samko looks like Roy Garber. I actually thought it was a relative, that took over where Roy left off. However when I looked them both up on Google, there isn’t anything about them being related… Just one of those things 💋
