Why Call A Locally Owned and Operated Delivery Service

by | Nov 1, 2023

If you’re a local business owner in St. Louis you don’t need anyone to tell you about holiday stress. Customers are shopping online and in person for the perfect gifts for family and friends. And everyone who works in our industry is working over-time to keep up with the demand. But the danger of having to hang “out of stock” signs is always imminent for this season’s “all the rage” items. If you don’t have what they want, they’ll take their money elsewhere. To keep this from happening, it’s important that everyone in the supply chain keep their promises. Zipp Express understands this.

Local businesses like yours need a locally owned and operated delivery service that offers guaranteed delivery and flexible delivery options. You may not know it yet, but you need Zipp Express.


We’re glad you asked!


Timely Same-day Local Delivery

With the holidays approaching, timely delivery is crucial to ensure your customers receive their gifts before the big day. Along with a number of other services, Zipp Express offers same day local delivery so you can make sure your packages arrive on time. Since we regularly deliver everywhere within a 150-mile radius of St. Louis and are located in the delivery area, we have no trouble keeping our promise. Putting it succinctly, when we say same day local delivery, we mean SAME DAY local delivery.

Local Knowledge Leads to Efficient delivery

After thirty years in the delivery business, Zipp Express has extensive knowledge of the St. Louis area. And because we make a point of hiring locally too, our drivers know the best routes to take, the traffic patterns to avoid, and the most efficient ways to get your packages delivered quickly. When their knowledge is combined with our state-of-the art route planning technology, you have an unbeatable combination.

Personalized Local Service

As a local business, you value personalized service. That’s why choosing a locally owned and operated delivery service like Zipp Express is a smart choice. We go above and beyond to provide exceptional customer service. With us your shipment, regardless of its size, will be handled with care and personalized attention.

Our carefully trained, experienced drivers understand the importance of delivering your packages quickly and securely. And you can trust that they’ll get the job done right because we only hire the best and provide intensive training before we put them on the road.

Convenient Delivery Options

With Zipp Express, you have several delivery options available to you that you can mix and match based on your needs.

We can add your shipments to a regular delivery route or make a special onetime delivery if needed. You have the option of scheduling your deliveries ahead of time or having them delivered on-demand. This means that you can rest easy knowing that your packages will arrive in a timely manner, no matter when and where they need to go.

And if you need to schedule deliveries ahead of time, we can store your shipment in our 40,000 square foot warehouse until your customer is ready for it. If your shipment contains especially sensitive items such as pharmaceuticals, jewelry, or high-end electronics, we can store them in our caged security area, which is only accessed with security codes and can be watched 24/7 with security cameras and security guards.

And with our rapid NFO and airport recovery service, if you need to send out a shipment or have one picked up from the airport at the last minute, we can help! Our drivers are TSA compliant, which means they can skip the line and go straight to the terminal. We are located less than 10 minutes from the airport and our people make that run all the time, so scheduling a pick up or drop off is as convenient as making a phone call.

Plus, you can easily track your delivery status online so that you know when the job is completed.
