Blue Flash Express was founded
in 1979 by career professionals with extensive experience
in warehousing for the chemical and plastics industries. We
employ more than 300 people and operate over 210 trucks from
terminals and yards across the United States.
Bulk Transport, Dry and Liquid
Although we routinely transport bulk liquids such
as herbicides, we are best-known for dry bulk transportation
— especially plastic resins. We have built a reputation
in the plastics industry as being a premier transporter of
these materials. We have developed many innovations in the
transfer of plastics. Our expertise in this industry is second
to none. We do handle other dry commodities such as salt,
flour, sugar, rice, corn, alumina, soda ash, urea and calcium
It takes more than a "very good" driver
to take the wheel at Blue Flash. In addition to an outstanding
driving record, we look for people with a special sense
of pride and responsibility. Then we train them, not just
in Blue Flash Express procedures, but also in your procedures.
So when they show up at your facility, they’ll be
ready to load.
Blue Flash hires seasoned professional drivers, and provides
extensive training in safety and in company policies and
procedures. A great percentage of our drivers are independent
owner-operators, many of whom are husband-wife teams.
Blue Flash dispatch can provide current status
information for any load using our GPS tracking system.
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) capabilities are available.

and are working actively toward ISO 9002 quality management
Our trucks don’t just look nearly new, they
are — and we’re even more meticulous about maintenance
than we are about keeping them clean.
