Overcoming is always underway.

Best Overnite Express was founded in 1987 as an asset based regional LTL carrier. We have remained privately held and first generation, family run since the inception. Best Overnite started out as a California based carrier with the idea that a dependable and consistent overnight service across the state was a need that wasn’t going away. Customers wanted an option for that reliable service that offered a personalized touch found lacking at the publicly traded or national based, conglomerate carriers. By establishing itself in the early years as a niche carrier focused on differentiating ideals Best Overnite was able to expand its service area to cover the entire west, starting with Arizona and Nevada, then Utah, Colorado and the Pacific Northwest states. Today, Best Overnite’s service area extends to the Midwestern states and across the borders of the US into Canada. Best Overnite has always strived to offer innovative, forward thinking and customizable transportation solutions second to none in the industry. By adopting the latest technological solutions, employing trained professional drivers, operational experts and seasoned customer care and sales representatives we assure that the Best transportation experience is available to you and your customers when you trust Best Overnite Express to handle your specialized transportation needs.
