Why Rapid Response?
Rapid Response has been a successful, family-owned trucking company for over 20 years.

This has allowed us to benefit from one of the best driver retention rates in the industry. We find advantageous routes for all our drivers, making sure to get them back home to see their families on a regular basis.
We don’t simply take loads from customers and try to cover them at the last minute. We have a strategic approach, matching up multiple loads in advance so that our drivers have a set route and don’t get stuck waiting on a load in any particular area. We know that layovers are undesirable, and we do everything we can to keep our drivers moving along with desirable freight. We don’t haul hazmat, and the vast majority of our freight is no-touch.
