In 1992, at 20 years old, David Hauk had an idea that has developed into a thriving business. Apollo Express, Inc. started with a straight truck and 1 employee-the owner David Hauk. The idea was simple and is today still part of what Apollo Express, Inc. has to offer. David took a gamble and it has been a win-win for everybody over the last 20 plus years. Today Apollo Express, Inc. delivers to grocery warehouses around the St. Louis metro area. In addition Apollo Express, Inc. is delivering other tough deliveries for the common carrier along with local pick up and deliveries. Overnight Apollo grew from a simple local carrier to an over the road dedicated, expedited deliveries and a nationwide carrier.
Today Apollo Express, Inc. is still providing service for the majority of the companies who got us off the ground. Our “can do" attitude sets us apart from many of our competitors. Currently Apollo Express, Inc. has 25 over the road tractors, 50 - 53 foot air ride e-track trailers, 6 straight trucks with lift gates, a few flat beds and cube vans. In addition we have a 30,000 square foot warehouse in the heart of Earth City, MO. This enables us to provide any service our customers need, whenever they need it. We provide service 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
In 2003 we got our truck brokerage authority. It was something we needed to have to be able to provide our shippers with an alternative when our own equipment was not available. We are very careful with who we partner with as we believe a broker truck is simply an extension of ourselves.
Apollo Express, Inc. has diversified into a full service transportation company. There is virtually nothing we can’t handle. All drivers are TSA certified to handle freight within the Air Freight Industry. We can handle same day local pickup and delivery on LTL up to full loads within the St. Louis commercial zones. We handle hot shot deliveries from van to tractor trailer anywhere, anytime and truckload service in and out of St. Louis to 48 states. We also provide local pickup and delivery service for LTL carriers who do not have a St. Louis facility. With the addition of our experienced brokerage department we can offer our customer base an alternative to just utilizing our equipment. Our staff and customers all are treated like family.
