Let Zipp Express Do the Driving

by | Jan 25, 2021

Zipp Express is proud of our reputation as a local courier and final mile delivery service. But there are other reasons why you should let Zipp Express do the driving for you and your business.

Let’s look at a few of our best features and how we use them to meet all your delivery needs.

Zipp Express Hires the Best Drivers

First, you don’t need to worry about who’s going to drive. All the drivers at Zipp Express are professionals, invested in making sure your shipment arrives on time, every time.

Our drivers are TSA certified, which means they can transport cargo directly to the airplane for loading and can pick it up just as quickly. And since we are located just a few minutes from St. Louis Lambert International Airport, they can be there with little notice. This makes us the perfect choice for all your NFO needs.

Many of our drivers are hazardous materials certified. This means they can safely and easily deliver a variety of shipments that require special attention to details, such as medical supplies, oxygen tanks, or propane.

You can also be completely confident that we will treat your freight with the greatest of care. Besides special driving certifications, we can train our drivers and crews to meet any additional transport and handling specifications you request. Leave the heavy lifting to us!

 Top of the Line Transport

We have a large fleet of vehicles to choose from. So you do not need to worry about paying for more truck than you need. And you don’t have to settle for less than optimum delivery for your freight. See below for a brief description of what we have and what each type of vehicle is for.

  • 48’-53’ tractor-trailers: Often used to haul building products, dry goods like canned or packaged food items, finished products, very large medical equipment, lawn and garden goods, just to name a few.
  • 24’-26’ straight trucks: Looks like a U-Haul truck and recommended for moving furniture, housing supplies, and large appliances. Liftgates are available as well.
  • Flatbeds: Used for carrying construction equipment or products with unusual shapes that are not weather sensitive.
  • Sprinters: A van often used for regular local delivery routes. They are perfect for parcel deliveries such as bulk-mail, payroll, lab specimens, pharmaceuticals, and auto parts.
  • Cars: Most often used by our couriers.

Zipp Express also offers Final Mile Delivery service. This means we collect freight from one of our many shipping partners, whether they bring it to our warehouse or we collect it from one of theirs. We then deliver it to our customer’s chosen destination within a 150-mile radius of St. Louis. Our local drivers get shipments where they need to be fast because they know the area and are available 24/7.

We also have a 48-state authority for expedited runs. This is handy when you want your freight passed through as few hands as possible and need it delivered quickly and efficiently.

Don’t see something you need in the form of transport? Ask us. We may have it available or can suggest another solution to your transportation problem.

Outstanding Specialty Delivery Services

Here’s another reason why you should let Zipp Express do the driving for you. Zipp Express offers several specialty services, including curbside, threshold, and White Glove services.

Curbside delivery is just what it sounds like. The driver stops at the curb in front of your business or home and hands your delivery over to you or one of your employees after they sign for it.

Threshold delivery is technically “over the threshold.” We carefully bring the freight inside, but our care stops there. It is up to you to place it in your room of choice, unpack, and set it up.

White Glove Delivery is full service. We carry it to your room of choice, set it up, and clear away packing materials afterward.

When you request White Glove Delivery from Zipp Express, you can be sure that our drivers understand the special care that items like medical equipment or sensitive office equipment require. They are experienced in transport, delivery, unpacking, and set up. Additionally, we provide special training upon request to ensure that your delivery experience meets your standards.

State-of-the-art Storage Facilities

When you need short or long-term storage space, our drivers can transport your freight to our 40,000 sq ft warehouse where it will be stored as directed by you until you’re ready for it.  We have state-of-the-art, 24-hour security so your freight will be well protected during its stay.

Our warehouse also features eight dock doors and can easily facilitate cross docking when working with other delivery partners. And when we move your freight, you can follow it to its destination with our real-time-tracking information.

 Premium Location

Zipp Express is located just a few minutes from St. Louis Lambert International Airport, just one-mile west of I-270 off I-70. We can also provide Next Flight Out (NFO) service with little notice. This combined with our certified drivers makes for efficient recovery and delivery.

We at Zipp Express believe we offer the best transport and delivery services in the St. Louis area. Let Zipp Express do the driving for you.  Call us today!
