Worldwide Express Celebrates 30th Anniversary and NASCAR Cup Series Primary Sponsorship Debut
DALLAS, TEXAS (May 17, 2022) — Founded in 1992, Worldwide Express began as a franchisor with the goal of providing unmatched shipping logistics services to the small and medium-sized business (SMB) community. In the three decades since, Worldwide Express, combined with its sister brands GlobalTranz and Unishippers, has become a top-ranked, full-service logistics provider and the second-largest privately held freight brokerage in North America, with customers spanning from SMBs to the Fortune 100.
This month, Worldwide Express marks 30 years in business and makes its debut as a primary sponsor in the NASCAR Cup Series. As part of a multi-year partnership with Trackhouse Racing, this week's NASCAR All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway will be the inaugural race for the WWEX Racing paint scheme on Ross Chastain's No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro. The scheme will make its debut on Daniel Suarez's No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro later this season in Michigan. For more information on the full WWEX Racing program, please visit www.wwexracing.com.
"From our beginnings as a startup operated from our co-founder David Kiger's spare bedroom, Worldwide Express has grown over the past 30 years into a leading, full-service logistics provider with an unrivaled growth engine, unmatched logistics solutions across direct and indirect channels, and world-class technology," said Tom Madine, Worldwide Express CEO. "Our foundation was built with a mindset that prioritized growth and delivering value to our customers, while maintaining market-leading relationships with our carrier partners. As we exceed $5 billion in revenue in 2022, we're deeply appreciative of our team and partners who have fueled the growth of the business and positioned us for the next 30 years, and beyond."
Rob Rose, Worldwide Express President, added: "Following our merger last year with GlobalTranz, we now provide an unparalleled offering of market-leading, multi-modal logistics solutions to customers ranging from SMBs up to some of the largest enterprises in the world. As our business has expanded, we have looked to establish value-added partnerships with carriers and other partners in and outside of the industry. Our NASCAR relationships with Trackhouse Racing and Niece Motorsports are great examples of collaborations that have delivered commercial benefits and increased national visibility for the three WWEX brands. Whether it's a celebration in Victory Lane or helping delivering goods from the shop to Main Street, our teams share a relentless drive to win, and we're excited to see where our NASCAR initiatives lead to next."
