About Estes Express Lines

Estes Express makes a business out of beating expectations. Founded during the Depression with a  Chevy truck, the company has grown into a multiregional less-than-truckload (LTL) freight hauler. (LTL carriers consolidate freight from multiple shippers into a single trailer.) Its fleet of some 7,700 tractors and 22,760 trailers operates via a network – more... of 210 terminals dotting the US. Service in Canada is provided by TST Overland Express, an ExpressLINK partner. Estes Express works with designated carriers to offer door-to-door delivery in the Caribbean and in Mexico. Subsidiary Estes Forwarding Worldwide services ocean/air freight forwarding. The company is owned and run by the family of founder W.W. Estes.

Financial Analysis

As the economy gradually recovers, Estes Express has recognized between $1 billion to $2 billion in annual revenues. From 2010 to 2011 its total sales increased by 15%. It attributes the growth to cost-balancing programs and new technology helping to optimize the pricing and capacity of its trucking services.


Estes Express has continued to build out its LTL business by offering expedited delivery, volume truckload transportation, supply chain management, nationwide brokerage services, warehousing services, and equipment leasing. The latter has provided such rental services as laundry trucks for the Department of Veterans Affairs. Its slate of services are supported by an upgraded wireless onboard pickup and delivery system, implemented in 2010, featuring real-time data, enabling terminals and drivers to process freight more efficiently.

The company also responds to growth by adding new locations. Estes Express in 2010 opened new offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Miami, and New York. In 2012 it opened additional terminals in Ohio and Texas. Estes Express has also formed a Mexico third-party logistics subsidiary, Estes Logistica, for managing freight consolidation and transportation to points south of the US border. – less
