The Benefits of a Local Final Mile Delivery Partner

by | Apr 11, 2018

These days, every address can become a delivery destination. Thanks to online shopping for everything from groceries to office furniture, the availability of e-commerce for consumers and businesses alike has changed logistics and final mile deliveries.
But what does that mean, exactly?

Companies reaching customers have seemingly limitless opportunities, and some logistics operations have not yet caught up. 

Think about it—you’ve seen it, a giant tractor trailer with just two small boxes in the back. Another large truck attempting a 12 point turn to get off of a dead end city street, cars parked on both sides. Costly gas receipts turned in by an exasperated employee tasked with running errands to the opposite side of town.

Zipp Express has the solution to all of those problems: partner with us as your local final mile delivery service! 

We are built for efficiency, familiar with our expansive network of St. Louis routes, and capable of freight repacking at our warehouse facility.  We operate 24/7, 365 days a year, with resources available overnight and on weekends. Zipp Express can take care of your headaches!
Utilizing Zipp Express is…


With the addition of our 40,000+ square foot warehouse, we have increased our ability for long term and short term storage, cross-docking, and freight repacking.  This enables us to create efficient and realistic delivery schedules for our drivers while still meeting delivery deadlines. 

Our fleet of trucks includes: 24’ – 26’ straight trucks, 48’-53’ tractor trailers with available lift gate service, and flat beds. Our fleet gives us the ability to right-size our transportation needs according to cargo and to destination (for example, a small driveway in a subdivision versus a warehouse loading dock). 

Zipp Express employs both TSA-compliant drivers and hazardous material-certified drivers to ensure the needs of our customers are met and exceeded, no matter the type, size, or frequency of delivery needs. 


Zipp Express offers an extensive network of routes and scheduling. Our drivers are familiar with the area and can deliver daily, weekly, or seasonal routes to fit your needs.  Tailored routes are also available, and our dock-high trucks and professional drivers will complete routes and delivery guidelines to your specifications.

Additionally, dedicated trucks and drivers are available to supplement any of your company drivers who are on vacation or “call out” last minute, leaving you in a bind. This can be done on a daily or weekly basis, AND with little advance notice.

Focused on Customer Needs

Zipp Express has been serving the St. Louis metropolitan area since 1989, and executive leadership actively participates in several St. Louis area Chambers and industry associations. We prioritize customer needs and value feedback in order to improve and enhance our offerings.  Some of the feedback we have received can be viewed here.

Involvement during the shipping and delivery process is important to our customers, and Zipp Express uses state-of-the-art technology to offer real-time tracking, signature capture, and POD notification by email.
