About Grand Island Express

Grand Island Express is a Midwest to East Coast provider.  I encourage you to check out our website at www.giexpress.com and see what we have to offer and why we have been voted one of the best fleets to drive for 5 consecutive years.  Just to give you a little more background about us - we are a reefer company and the main commodity we haul is fresh and frozen boxed meat from JBS Swift which is located right across the street from us here in Grand Island, NE.  Our backhauls into the area is typically dry van freight items like agriculture parts, inventory for Sam’s, Walmart, etc.  We travel a lot of the I-80 corridor which gives us a great opportunity to employee drivers along that corridor.  We also offer all drivers PrePass and EZPass. 

GI Express offers great benefit packages and incentive programs as well.  You have one of the toughest jobs out there and our goal here is make that job as enjoyable and rewarding for you as we can. Grand Island Express wants to see you succeed and be happy with what you are doing out on the road.

Tom Pirnie, Owner and President, strives every day to make sure that the drivers are safe and taken care of from the equipment you drive to the office staff you have interaction with.  If you see any of our current drivers out there, ask them, and they will tell you how great it is to belong to the “GI Express Family”.
