Leadership

At Worldwide Express, our goal is to truly understand the logistics needs of small and midsize businesses, and to develop solutions that are tailor-made for each of our customers. It’s something that our leadership team inherently understands because many of them began as business owners themselves. With their entrepreneurial mindset, their hands-on approach, and their proven experience delivering top-tier service, the Worldwide Express leadership team is committed to always delivering on our promise to our employees, our carrier partners and our customers.
