About Us

History and Background

What started in 1982 with one straight truck and one furniture delivery customer has turned into one of the Midwest’s largest and most successful transportation companies. From our modest beginning, delivering furniture across the St. Louis metro area, we have grown into a large asset-based transportation provider specializing in full truckloads, less than full truckloads (LTL), local deliveries, home deliveries, and home appliance and furniture services.

We also have a fully staffed logistics division that has access to thousands of carriers we work with on a regular basis. These logistics professionals are ready to tackle any of your transportation needs. At Rapid Response our focus is on providing superior customer service. We work with each of our customers to fully understand their transportation and service needs. Our experience and expertise allow us to tailor individual programs based on these customer needs.
