Same Day Trucking & Freight Services Without The City Hassle

The tight downtown city streets of Baltimore, Philadelphia and DC are not conducive to large trucks and tractor trailers. But when freight has to be delivered, many truckers have no choice, especially when the delivery is time-sensitive or at a scheduled appointment time.

If your aggravated truckers are tired of driving into the city, there is a better way to do first mile, last mile deliveries. Same day trucking and freight services from Lightning Express allow your drivers to unload at our warehouse in Baltimore, day or night, and our dedicated couriers take it from there.

24 Hour Secure Warehouse Services

Our secure climate controlled warehouse in Baltimore accepts deliveries 24 hours per day and is under 24 hour video surveillance. If your goods arrive early and need to be stored for a few days before being shipped, we have the space, technology, and staff to securely store any size load. Lightning Express is OSHA and HIPAA compliant and TSA certified to ensure proper handling and security of your goods.

Pool Distribution & Cross-Docking

When your freight has multiple destinations, our pool distribution and cross-docking services provide fast, reliable same-day and next-day deliveries. By minimizing handling, you reduce driver liability and claim potential, ultimately reducing costs and improving customer satisfaction.

Modern Fleet & Experienced Drivers

No matter what size load you have, our modern fleet of dedicated delivery vehicles can accommodate it. We have an extensive fleet that includes box trucks, city vans and sprinters equipped with lift gates to handle everything from pharmaceuticals to raw materials for manufacturing.

Lightning Express ensures all drivers and carriers are properly insured and are compliant with local DOT regulations. Drivers are put through a strict vetting process that includes reference gathering, personnel interviews and equipment inspections.
