In April 2001, We decided to take a chance and start a freight brokerage company from home. We called it Expedite Logistics Services. It was a family business, as my wife Kelly would handle the accounting (as well as many other roles), and I would handle the logistics portion. In April 2004, at the urging of several customers, we purchased two trucks and three dry van trailers, and Thompson Transportation Inc. was born. In November 2004, we were large enough to warrant a move to our first office and hire an official employee. Fast forward nearly 20 years, and we've grown to 45 company trucks and 100 trailers with 50 drivers, 13 office employees, and a first-class onsite maintenance facility. Through all the growth, we've kept our values of being a family business front and center, and that family extends to our Thompson Transportation team.
"Thompson Transportation has been doing business with Buddeez, Inc. for several years. We learned right away that Thompson Transportation sets the bar very high above other companies. Their employees are always friendly, knowledgeable, and understanding. They have always come through even when we ask them the impossible. We highly recommend them to anyone."

"Bancroft Bag has partnered with Expedite Logistics Services for several years. We have found working with Bo and Leah, they are able to meet our transportation needs. Bancroft Bag is a very demanding company, and we have found that very few companies can meet our high standards in the time frame we have to work with. Expedite has met the challenges that we have presented to them. Not only does Expedite handle our truckload needs, but they have handled our expedited shipment needs as well."
"Miller and Company has been using Thompson Transportation for much of our end dump business for many years. From the onset of our relationship, Thompson has provided Miller and our customers with the highest quality service and superior reliability. Communication with Chris or Brad via phone or email is excellent. I can always expect a prompt, courteous reply to an order, question, or quote request. They keep me well informed of any truck delays or empty dump trucks they may have available in certain locations. In addition, their rates are very competitive, and even in cases where they may be higher, I would rather go with quality service and reliability over dollars, so I choose Thompson. It's a name I've come to trust and depend on"
