J&M EXPRESS STORY

We first entered the trucking industry back in 2016, in Summit, IL with only 3 trucks and 3 trailers. Our dedication, hard work, and a clear vision kept us going forward and made us who we are today! We are proud of not just getting over the hardest years for the transportation industry, but also succeeding to expand our fleet! Despite all the challenges that the industry put in our way, we grew to a mid-sized trucking company with a fleet of 30 trucks and 37 trailers. J&M Express, Inc has the most reliable truck drivers, a family that started with us and is getting bigger every day!

 

​Our vision is to become one of the biggest and most reliable freight moving companies in Illinois.

Company culture is based on putting our drivers and their safety first and our great safety record proves that!
