Based in Milan, Tennessee, Milan Express was founded in 1969 by Tommy W. Ross with one tractor, one straight truck, and two trailers, serving the 87-mile route between Milan and Memphis, TN.
The original mission of the company was simple..."to be a quality motor carrier by providing dependable transportation service for our clients at a fair price and for a reasonable profit."
The company made a profit in our very first year and we have never looked back. Over the years we have experienced internal growth and expanded our capabilities by purchasing all or part
of the assets of several companies including: Roadmasters, T.F. Express, Porter Transfer, Ace Trucking, Senter Cartage, Hiller Truck Lines, WATCO, MAWS Warehouse, Transmobile and West Brothers Transfer and Storage.
Today, Milan Express remains a closely held corporation of the Ross family and our original mission statement is a reality.
