Courier Express was founded in 1985 in Atlanta, Georgia, with a focus on providing timely, dependable courier service. In July 1990, William "Bill" Messerly acquired ownership. Bill and his sons, Jack and Jim, quickly established a clear, unified vision for the company: to provide superior service at a fair market price. That simple formula, along with a carefully planned expansion and the ability to build on each success, has spurred steady growth. Today, Courier Express is one of the largest courier companies in the nation.
Courier Express has hinged its success on two primary areas: people and technology. We are led by a team of first-rate managers--experts in their fields--who are given the freedom and authority to run their operations the way they know best. From top to bottom, we have assembled an elite team of employees, with numerous years of experience in the courier, freight and warehousing industries. In addition to a team of exceptional employees, Courier Express is committed to investing in the latest technology, using state-of-the-art communication equipment and highly automated systems to provide our clients unparalleled service. Through software and scanning equipment, we are able to provide our clients with "real time" signatures and delivery times when requested. It's the combination of the top-notch employees and cutting-edge technology that has allowed us to improve service and customer care while expanding our business rapidly. Whether you have a large order to ship involving multiple tractor-trailer loads, or a need as small as a briefcase delivered across town, we have the experience and expertise to get the job done.
