About Us

Our Mission and History

Western Express, Inc. is an asset-based truckload carrier headquartered in Nashville, TN with terminals and facilities throughout the United States.  Our company was founded in 1991 by Wayne and Donna Wise.  After the passing of Wayne Wise in 2010, the future of the company was placed in the hands of the existing management team.  In 2019, Western Express was able to provide the opportunity for the Wise family to redeem most of their shares.  They will maintain a minority shareholder position.  The current management team now owns the majority interest.

Western Express has grown to become a large tier industry truckload carrier running one of the newest fleets in the industry.  Our fleet of over 3000 power units and over 7500 trailers are 100% GPS trackable.  We are a service focused company.


The following Corporate Core Values were adopted in 2019:

Be Driver Friendly

Be Safe     

Think Big   

Do More with Less        

Have Fun

Expect Excellence       

Stay Fit      

Take Care of Each Other                 

Be Humble, Hungry, & Hardworking


Serving the needs of our customers by providing innovative transportation solutions that exceed their needs, while maintaining a profitable business and providing an environment to allow professional and personal growth for our associates are our goals.

We strive to do all within our power to keep our associates, our customers, and the public safe.  Our company is fully EDI capable and offers web-based viewing of invoice and proof of delivery documentation. We utilize our resources to invest in our community.   And, we like to have fun!
