Refrigerated carrier reclaims historic company name and is still trucking strong


Content Sponsored by A & A Express, Inc.

A premier refrigerated transport company recently announced that they’ll be honoring their decades-long history by returning to their classic company name.

A Brandon, South Dakota-based trucking company recently announced they will make the move back to the name “A & A Express, Inc.” after operating as “Roadrunner Temperature Controlled” for several years.

Roadrunner Transportation Systems acquired A & A Express in 2012, a move that allowed the company to streamline their operations. However as the company moves forward into 2020 and beyond, they’ve decided to take back their original name as a nod to their roots and founders.

Aside from the name change, company leaders say that they are committed to maintaining the status quo and that it’ll be business as usual for drivers — and business is booming.

While many companies are struggling amid the Coronavirus crisis, A & A Express has been able to put their 50 years of trucking experience to work and the company is experiencing steady and substantial growth in 2020 that is expected to carry into next year and beyond, resulting in less brokered freight and stable pay.

Part of the reason for A & A Express’s success is the fact that they’ve created a company culture that supports drivers who take pride in their work and are willing to go above and beyond to help service their customer’s needs. Drivers who are able to provide superior customer service thrive in the A & A Express atmosphere, and many drivers wind up staying with the company for decades.

A & A Express company drivers make up to $65,000 or more per year. Owner-operators earn up to 74% revenue percentage pay and can earn more than $4,500 per week in gross pay.

A & A Express specializes in hauling fresh produce, meat, and frozen foods, as well as dry goods coast-to-coast and they are proud of how they’ve been able to expand over the years through a combination of strategy and perseverance. In 1945, Vince Anderson felt the need to introduce a new philosophy into Minnesota’s livestock hauling business. Through hard work, honest work, and utmost attention to every detail, this philosophy gained the trust of cattlemen throughout the region, Vince’s small family business began to grow. In the late 1970’s, Vince Anderson Trucking, Inc. diversified as the demand for the work ethic he introduced into the livestock hauling expanded into the refrigeration arena. Through careful planning and input from customers, a new family business, A & A Express, Inc. was born.
