Specialized Delivery Services from Zipp Express

by | Apr 12, 2023

How do you set yourself apart from the competition? By going above and beyond what the others do.

Zipp Express in St. Louis is a locally owned and operated trucking and courier company. Other trucking companies are around, but Zipp Express offers specialized delivery service options for our customers’ convenience that others may not.

Here’s what we can give you:

  • online scheduling and tracking in real time
  • seasonal delivery
  • asset recovery

Online scheduling after hours

specialized delivery servicesWhen you own and operate a small business, you’re never really off the clock. We know because we’ve been there.

Let’s say you suddenly realize at 10:00 p.m. that you forgot to schedule a delivery of inventory that absolutely needs to get across the state by end of business the following day. If you have an account with us, you’ll be able to head over to our client portal, log in and schedule your pickup and delivery. How convenient is that?

Not a client? No problem! Just give us a call at 314-842-8877 and we can get you set up.

And of course, once you’ve scheduled your delivery, you’ll be able to track it along the way. This is particularly helpful for peace of mind if you’re having us transport high-value cargo.

(But rest assured, you can trust our drivers – they are licensed, bonded and trained to handle all sorts of cargo and emergencies.)

Seasonal deliveries

One of our specialized delivery services is seasonal deliveries. That’s because not every business needs year-round deliveries. Take Scholastic Books. Many schools offer their students a spring and fall book fair. During those few months when Scholastic is setting up book displays and delivering subsequent book orders to schools, they aren’t using their own trucks.

No. They depend on Zipp Express. They know Zipp Express will not charge them for more truck space than they need. That’s because we have a large fleet of trucks of all sizes to meet our customer’s needs.

“Zipp Express is always able to provide the requested number of trucks and drivers to handle our school deliveries and return pick-ups. The consistent quality of the Zipp drivers, including being well-groomed, in uniform and with photo Identification badges, is a key factor in our continued use of Zipp.”

There are other businesses with fluctuating needs. Marketing departments within large corporations and mid-sized companies often need to set up displays, booths and material at conventions and industry fairs.

Most places don’t have big warehouses to hold their inventory, booths, advertising material and flags. That’s where Zipp Express comes in. We have the warehouse space to store your marketing material.

Whether you need us for a regularly scheduled pickup and delivery route, the several-time-a-year event or just the occasional courier service, you and your business are important to us!

As a representative from Scholastic Book Fairs said: Even though our business is seasonal, Zipp Express treats us as their “number one” priority at all times.

Asset recovery

Did you know that we offer asset recovery services? That’s another one of our specialized delivery services we offer. If you’re not sure what that is, let us explain.

As businesses flourish, their primary focus may expand or change. Take a small business that focused on printing flyers, business cards and other marketing materials. On the side, they did a few random screen-print t-shirts focusing on funny cat sayings.

We all know print has been on the decline. Meanwhile, their funny cat t-shirt sales have taken off. Company leaders decided to sell their printing machines to a larger company in Indiana.

Then they called us to “recover their assets. We took an inventory of what they needed to unload and recorded everything with photos and documents. We took care to box and palletize their equipment and inventory and went on our way to deliver it to the company in Indiana.

Along the way, we kept the small business up-to-date on the status of the work and the delivery time line.

Conclusion

If your business requires specialized delivery services such as those listed here, don’t hesitate to call Zipp Express at 314-842-8877 or contact us online.
