Locally Owned & Operated
With years of transportation experience, and a vision of a team environment with superior leadership, Expedite Logistic Services was established by Jimmy and Kelly Thompson in 2001. In 2004, drawing on Jimmy’s knowledge of transportation services and his positive leadership ability, the business team expanded, and became Thompson Transportation Services. In 2010, the growing company diversified, adding a Bulk End-Dump Division, making Thompson Transportation a full service transportation source, offering high quality service to our customers, many of whom have been loyal since day one.

“After spending 12 years with one of the largest LTL companies, on April 2001 I decided to take a chance and start a freight brokerage company from home. We called it, Expedite Logistics Services. And we were on our way. Getting started was a challenge, as most of the day was spent establishing new business, coordinating loads and dispatching trucks. It was indeed a family business, as my wife Kelly would handle the billing and invoicing along with many other roles. We were busy. In April 2004, from the urging of several customers, we purchased two trucks and three dry van trailers and started Thompson Transportation Inc. – while still working from our home. In November 2004, we were large enough to warrant a move to our first office, and hire an “official” employee” to help with the brokerage company. Shortly thereafter, this we hired a third. Fast forward close to 20 years, and we’ve grown to 45 company trucks and 100 trailers with 50 drivers, 13 office employees and a great onsite maintenance facility. Through all the growth, we’ve managed to keep our values of being a “family” business front and center. Treating our Thompson Trans team as family. Stronger today than ever. Come join us!”
