When Arlene Valdez founded Expedited Trans in Miami, Florida in 2012, she knew she wanted to create a different kind of motor carrier business — one focused on honesty, integrity, and personal relationships. She started out with 10 trucks and one question: How can we bring the best value to customers while remaining true to our core company values?

Since then, Expedited Trans has grown its fleet of tractors running high-value, time sensitive shipments across the country, and continues to expand its committed group of contracted team drivers who make it happen. In the office is a 24/7 operations team who work to ensure loads are delivered on time, every time.
