Since incorporating in 1985, Empire Express has grown to become the strong, respected carrier it is today. Tim Gatlin, President and CEO and Ed Gatlin, Founder and Co-Owner continue to lead the company in steady growth and success.
Empire Express serves the 48 continental states, Mexico, and Canada, and handles cargo that requires time-sensitivity, safety-sensitivity, or both. Thirty-five percent of our loads are packaged chemicals or related products (agricultural chemicals and poisons, paint-related materials and styrene’s, polymers and other chemicals used by the chemical process industry). We also haul other products such as clothing and apparel, air cargo, home and office products, packaging and containers, paper products, retail goods, electronics, cotton and general commodities.
We are focused on providing excellent service to shipper-partners that demand safe, on-time service and who offer driver-friendly, no-touch freight.
