What makes All State Express unique? It is the largest Woman-Owned Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), certified provider of Time Critical Transportation. The WBENC certification for woman-owned businesses is one of the most widely recognized and respected certifications in the nation. Accepted by thousands of corporations within the country and a number of federal and government agencies, the certification gives All State Express an entree into a customer base perhaps not available to non-certified companies. 

For the last decade, CEO Sherri Squier has ably led her company into the expedite, truckload and expedite logistics fields. Offering ground and air charter services for their customers, All State Express can cover all of a customer’s just in time and dedicated freight needs. All State Express contractors haul loads to all 48 states and Canada; Mexican freight will transfer at the border to Mexican carriers for that leg of the trip. Air freight is handled through All State Express’s vast array of air charter suppliers.

The 365/24/7 Coordination Center makes keeping up with freight demands easy for both the customer and the contractors. Furthermore, the entire fleet is equipped with Qualcomm OmniVision, allowing their TMS to provide minute-to-minute updates of where any shipment is located around the clock.  All State Express was the first North American expeditor to have its entire fleet outfitted with Qualcomm OmniVision. 

Contractors leased on with All State Express enjoy a family orientated atmosphere where one phone call can resolve any issues or address any needs they may have. Rick Moreno, Director of Corporate Compliance and Risk Management, says that All State Express has one of the lowest rate of driver turnover in the industry.  He attributes this to All State Express being very compassionate with driver’s needs both personally and professionally.  “We pride ourselves on treating our contractors well,” Moreno says.

Taking the family concept one step further, All State Express recently heard of a family in need in nearby Winston-Salem NC for whom Habitat for Humanity was going to build a house. Jumping in, All State Express helped sponsor the project.  Moreno says, “Here at All State Express, we believe in giving people a hand up on a local community level, so we help where we can. The Habitat for Humanity project was very satisfying for us.”

Moreno credits CEO Sherri Squier with the success of both the customer service record and the driver retention record at All State Express. Squier’s philosophy is simple. In her statement on All State Express’s website, she makes it plain: “Mutually-beneficial Partnership is our vision and mission with respect to our Customer, Driver, Owner-Operator, Fleet Owner Investor, and Management and Administrative affiliations. It is clear to us that we must maintain and continually improve the opportunities, processes, and environment in our NAFTA-wide enterprise.”

While driver retention is high, with All State Express’s continued success and growth, they are looking for high quality, exclusively leased owner operators and small fleet owners to join their successful fleet network.  All State Express ensures that owner-operators are properly supported by its Coordination Center, providing a combination of personal visibility and healthy miles, linehaul rates, accessorials and fuel surcharge.  All State Express promises interested contractors, “Be assured you will be involved with a growing enterprise where you truly will be a valued investor and not a number.  We are not too large to where you will be lost in a crowd or 3rd to 20th in line at popular destinations; nor are we too small and lean to give you the time and attention you need, when you need it.” 

If you are looking for a working home for yourself and/or your equipment and are interested in going to work for a unique, growing company, go to allstateexpress.com or call 877.742.5875.  All State Express is located in Kernersville, NC.
