From the fright carrier: JP Express

The company was founded by Joseph Pelosi in 1988, and since then has grown from two straight trucks to over five hundred pieces of equipment operating through a network of five state-of-the-art service centers, all located within our primary service area of 75 miles around midtown Manhattan. JP Express has thrived by developing a culture of personalized service for all of our customers, large or small, while mastering the art of pickup and delivery within the Tri-state area.

Delivery to the NYC-Metro Area: Our #1 Specialty

What separates JP Express from all the others is our ability to move freight, next day, in a cost- effective and consistently on-time manner, in one of the most heavily congested and expensive areas of the country in which to operate.

We Know New York

As a trucking company born and bred in the New York City area, we know New York. That’s why moving freight in the tri-state area, especially New York City, is something we do better than anyone else in the market. While other carriers may do business here, JP is headquartered just outside NYC, and has mastered operating in this area since 1988. Our unparalleled native knowledge of the five boroughs of New York City gives us a huge leg up on our competitors — and provides tremendous value for our customers as well. In fact, we count several carriers who prefer not to attempt operating east of the Hudson River among our best customers. They’re smart enough to know that when it comes to dealing with New York, JP Express is “the best.”

What Makes New York So Tough Anyway?

Start with the expense. There’s the cost of living, payroll, and service center locations. Add to that the unpredictability of traffic, tolls and tickets. Finally, there’s the physical maze of New York’s geography and street layout. These conditions often discourage the largest companies, but it’s “just another day at the office” for the people at JP. Not only can we get your shipment there, we can guarantee next day delivery, provide dedicated or inside service, and much more. In fact, we can execute all of our specialty services right here in the New York area, and that can solve a host of business problems for you.
