We can hardly believe it has been 20 years since we launched as 24/7 Express Logistics! As a locally owned and operated family company in the Midwest, we take a lot of pride in our business and our service to customers.
Our commitment to excellence began with our owners, Rick and Christine Gilbert. The husband and wife team founded 24/7 Express Logistics in 2001. Both Rick and Christine have strong backgrounds in the transportation and logistics industry. They even met while working for a logistics company! Their passion for helping customers, going above and beyond to deliver industry-best service, and finding the right solutions to fit each client’s unique needs led them to start their own company.
The first 24/7 Express Logistics location was opened in Kansas City, followed by a second location in St. Louis. It was important to both Rick and Christine to build the company on the principle of being a trusted partner their customers could rely on to keep their business moving forward. They have stayed true to this value, with the proof being in 24/7’s long-term customer retention and stellar customer satisfaction rates.
Working alongside their 24/7 Express Logistics’ leadership team, Rick and Christine have grown the company to be a leading transportation, logistics and distribution provider in the Midwest. And they have done it while maintaining a family-friendly, tight-knit team culture, where drivers and staff are respected and valued.
The past 20 years have been a wild ride. We’re excited for what lies ahead as 24/7 Express Logistics continues to deliver world-class on-demand and distribution courier and freight solutions for our customers.
