Do you only provide transportation services to your warehouse customers?
Nope, Shippers Express is non-exclusive!

For companies needing transportation support or for shippers looking for one source to handle all their warehousing and transportation needs, Shippers Express can deliver for you!
How does Shippers Express differ from a brokerage?
Shippers Express is more than just a middleman between shippers. We provide transportation management services – handling the overall process of carrier selection, planning, communication, execution, and optimizing the movement of your goods. Carried out by our internal logistics team, Shippers Express provides more than just the delivery of your goods. We provide value to every part of the process, which is why customers who are not warehouse customers also choose to partner with Shippers Express.
What are some incentives for using Shippers Express if you are already a warehouse customer?
Utilizing our transportation services along with our warehousing or additional services can save you a significant amount of time, allowing you to communicate with one company for all your logistics needs. There is also the added value of convenience since scheduling can be handled all-in-one. Our warehouse and transportation departments communicate regularly, so if there are any changes to the load or timing, our team works internally to quickly make the necessary arrangements for you.
