First Express Inc


Bill Keith established FirstExpress in 1994 after noticing a trend developing in the transportation industry. With businesses coming under greater pressure to be innovative, he noticed the transport companies servicing them were becoming inflexible to the industryÂâ€Ã¢„¢s needs.
