Magnum Express Inc.


The company began in 1989 as an entrepreneurial idea as most start-up trucking companies start with in order that one day they will have a place in the marketplace to survive. Magnum Express, Inc. was incorporated in Indiana in December of 1997 and applied to the Federal Highway Administration for a 48 state, irregular-route, contract motor carrier operating authority that same month. Spanning the next four months, the company found a building from which it could operate, secured insurance coverage and a line of credit and subsequently took delivery on 35 brand new trailers                        
Magnum Express' primary operating area covers Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin and North Carolina. The company provides short to medium haul "JIT"(Just in Time) service to a variety of industries as it operates modern, well-maintained power units and 53' long, 102' wide trailers ensuring On-Time, On-Purpose service; in part, made possible to a great extent due to the fact that it is a safety-conscience, completely Owner-Operator company.

Regardless of the inbound or outbound transportation modes, Magnum can quickly and efficiently unload, check, rework and reship products to their final destinations.
