The owner-operator of Snortn Boar Transport, Marc Springer, is widely recognized for the A&E TV series, Shipping Wars. He first appeared on the show on January 2012, in season 1. After its 100th episode, the show was called off in 2015.
Marc was interested towards hockey since a young age. He left his hometown Washington, at the early age of 14, to pursue a pro-hockey career in Dauphin Manitoba, Canada. As he was individualistic, he tried his hand on several fields, including fishing, scuba diving, and trucking. After doing several odd jobs, he finally got a job as a salesperson in Harley Davidson.
However, in 2007, due to economy crash, the business went on to bear the massive loss, and there was nobody to buy motorcycles. He then returned to the trucking industry and opened a company in 2009.
He was working as an independent shipper when he received the mail from uShip, an online transportation marketplace connecting shippers and carriers. He was surprised when he saw mail, asking if he was interested in being on A&E TV series, Shipping Wars.
Not for a single second, he thought it was real, so he replied with a smart email. Later, when he found it wasn't a joke, he did not think twice as it was an excellent opportunity for him to run his business while they’d film the show.
Fame from Shipping Wars
He made his debut appearance on the show, Shipping Wars since its first season, which aired in January 2012. The show documented independent shippers who compete for shipments in the timed auction. But it was not as easy as Marc thought. In some of the episodes, things did not go as he wanted and it was hard for him to operate as he could not run his vehicle and business head to head.
After its seventh season, the show was called off on April 29, 2015. Following that, he got back to his normal life and started handling his company, Snortn Boar Transport. He also has a website with the same name, where his products are available.
He has also made several public appearances with companies including, Cummins, where he got the chance to drive a truck with new Cummins X15 engine and Eaton transmission. More recently, in March 2018, he was seen in the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS).
As of now, he is working for Diesel Spec, a leader in truck diesel engine ECM tuning technology, as the USA sales representative.
Throughout his successful career, he has been able to garner a good fortune. As of 2018, he has an estimated net worth of $600 thousand.
A married man!
Apart from his professional life, Marc is also a family man. He is a father to four children, among which one of his daughters, Casey made a brief appearance on the show, Shipping Wars along with him.
Marc is among those who prefers keeping the details of his private life low key. As of now, he has not revealed much about his wife and his children.
Marc is relatively active on social sites, where he updates his fan about his day-to-day life. He has over 52.7k followers on Facebook, 27k followers on Twitter, and 1k followers on Instagram.
