Our History

SunBelt Xpress started as a Specialized Furniture Carrier for the home furnishings industry—and has grown throughout our more than 56 years of providing safe, reliable transportation solutions.

The Road to Becoming a Premier Carrier in Home Furnishings and Beyond

SunBelt Xpress first took to the road in 1965 as a Specialized Carrier dedicated to the home furnishings industry. Every day since we have worked to help make Logistics and Supply Chain management easier for our customers. We provide a single point of contact that customers can rely on for all their shipping needs. SunBelt also offers access to a fleet of well-maintained transportation assets of nearly 300 tractors and over 800 trailers.
