Our Mission & History

The mission of Volunteer Express, Inc., a progressive transportation organization, is to provide superior service through safe and efficient operations and innovative thinking; thus providing the best value to both our customers and shareholders.


Volunteer Express, Inc. was founded in 1973 with two tractors, five trailers, and three employees in Dresden, Tennessee. Now, in our 46th year,  Volunteer Express has grown from one to twelve terminals and has locations in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Virginia.  We also have strategic partnerships that serve the Northeast United States from Maryland to Maine. Volunteer’s terminal network is uniquely positioned to provide excellent, predictable, expedited service to “Mom and Pop” businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and everyone in between. 

In October 2011 Volunteer Express became a 100% Employee-Owned Company. Our Employee Shareholders clearly understand that taking care of our customers is equal to taking care of each other and our future.   It is our job to move your product to its destination quickly and without damage.  We understand that the products we move may be someone’s very important Christmas gift, urgently needed medical supplies, or a machine part that is holding up a production line.  It is with these thoughts in mind that our team goes to work every day serving our customers.


Our service offerings include LTL, Truckload, Dedicated, and Expedited.  We would love to learn more about your business and how our team can serve your transportation and supply chain needs.
