Legacy Express Trucking, Inc. is a family company that opened its doors in February of 2012 with a vision and three trucks. Founded by Isaac Issa, a young entrepreneur with a burning ambition, Legacy Express Trucking embarked on a journey that would transform it into a force to be reckoned with in the trucking and shipping industry. 

In the early days, Legacy Express Trucking operated on the sheer determination of Isaac and a small team of dedicated individuals. They faced challenges head-on, fueled by a shared passion for delivering exceptional transportation services.  

Legacy Express Trucking grew steadily, earning a reputation for reliability, professionalism, and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. Through Persistence and continued investment in growth, the fleet expanded to encompass a remarkable 20 trucks. These early triumphs set the stage for the exciting journey that lay ahead. 

As the trucking industry evolved, so did Legacy Express Trucking. Recognizing the changing landscape and the desires of drivers to be closer to their families, Legacy Express Trucking embraced the local driving market. This forward-thinking approach allowed us to provide opportunities for drivers to be home every night, fostering a sense of balance and fulfillment in their lives. 

In 2014, Legacy Express Trucking took a momentous step forward by acquiring its first physical office in Crestwood, IL. This marked a significant milestone, providing a dedicated space for the growing team and reinforcing the company’s commitment to excellence. With an expanding fleet and a passionate workforce, Legacy Express Trucking was ready to seize new opportunities and make an even greater impact in the industry.

This decision opened doors to new possibilities, bringing daily home options to drivers and expanding our presence in the ever-evolving shipping market. With this strategic move, Legacy Express Trucking solidified its position as a trusted and reliable partner for clients in need of efficient and versatile transportation solutions. 

Today, Legacy Express Trucking stands tall as a leading player in the trucking industry.
