Why Work Here?

Family Owned Business!

Back in 2008, the CJ Solutions’/ Lightning Xpress team recognized that shipping customers often get pigeonholed at other logistics companies into established lanes and rate structures that leave them with no way to customize or negotiate. And if they try to go outside of those parameters, they end up paying an arm and a leg. But with our team’s collective experience and know-how, we were confident that we could piece together logistics solutions unique to each of our customers; thinking outside the box – pun intended. The “Customer First” perspective has worked for us throughout the years and we believe it’s where logistics will go in the future. This way of thinking serves as a grounding philosophy that guides our decision-making process throughout the shipping cycle. We stay focused on growing our relationships with companies we work with and their people. Let us win your trust through consistent performance.
