Blue Flash Express, LLC

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 chloride.

Driver Profile
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.

Total Quality Management
We adhere to Total Quality Management principles and are working actively toward ISO 9002 quality management system certification.

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.

• GPS tracking systems on all trucks that provide instantaneous driver location and secure communications.

• Lightweight, late-model trailers from leading manufacturers such as J&L and Heil for maximum payload

• Trailers with catwalks for safety, heat exchangers to protect temperature-sensitive loads, and on-board scales

• Custom direct-transfer systems that allow unpowered trailers to "self-load" when accompanied by a vacuum trailer

• Custom railcar fittings to reduce small spills during loading

• Operation Clean Sweep Kits on every truck for 100% clean operations

• Wide range of fittings on every truck to accommodate a variety of loading/unloading requirements

Our Mission

• To provide safe, dependable, efficient transportation service for dry and liquid bulk products.
• To strive for excellence in all our endeavors, thus achieving total customer satisfaction for both internal and external customers.
• To meet or exceed all customer, regulatory, and environmental requirements in a safe, timely, and cost effective manner.
