A&E'S HIT ORIGINAL SERIES "SHIPPING WARS" REVS UP FOR A NEW SEASON

BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES PREMIERE TUESDAY, JUNE 3 AT 10 AND 10:30PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 21, 2014 - A&E's original series "Shipping Wars," which follows independent truckers who make their living hauling unusual items traditional carriers won't touch, is back for a brand-new season. Season six kicks off Tuesday, June 3 with back-to-back premieres at 10 and 10:30PM ET/PT.

"Shipping Wars" follows the high-stakes world of heavy-duty moving as independent truckers bid against one another for the opportunity to ship the unshippable. Each day, thousands of shipments, from oversized loads and bulky packages to the truly bizarre, are put up for auction. The trucker with the lowest bid wins the job. The trouble then is figuring out how to actually move it.

Seasoned shippers Marc Springer, Jennifer Brennan and Jarret Joyce return to tackle new loads and the challenges that come with them. Joining these "Shipping Wars" veterans this season are new cast members Dusty Davies, Jessica Samko and Todd & Tamera Sturgis. 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. After breaking up with her boyfriend, Samko founded her own trucking business and is willing to haul anything she can get her hands on. Shipping power couple Todd and Tamera Sturgis have been driving trucks together for 20 years and cross the country every other week hauling whatever their dispatcher throws at them.

In the season premiere, Jarrett struggles with his toughest shipment yet when he signs on to transport a giant 40-foot plaster colon. Later this season, Jenn ships a collection of haunted dolls, while newcomer Dusty Davies lands a cross-country load involving a Soviet era MIG jet. Veteran Marc Springer battles tornado-spawning weather as he hauls a heavy load.

"Shipping Wars" is produced by Megalomedia for A&E Network. Executive producer for Megalomedia are Jonathan Nowzaradan and Graham Davidson. Executive producers for A&E Network are Neil A. Cohen and Devon Graham.
