EDI Express Services

EDI Express

EDI Express offers three types of Standard Delivery Service, which include:

  • LTL – Less Than Truck Load: EDI’s LTL service is expedited and takes 3-5 days from coast to coast. By comparison, it takes the competition 5-10 days to deliver freight across this distance.
  • FTL – Full Truck Load
  • Local Delivery

Guaranteed Delivery Service

EDI Express also offers a Guaranteed Delivery Service. If they don’t deliver on time, the customer doesn’t pay. This service is available, for a 25% premium, to most of the points the company services.

 

Driving Jobs at EDI Express

Drivers at EDI Express work in two-person sleeper teams to ensure that shipments get to their destinations on time.

LTL and FTL drivers can expect to spend most days on the road. Local drivers will get more home time, but the company’s routes can be demanding.

With guaranteed delivery options and the expectation of getting loads coast to coast in 3-5 days, drivers will need to meet strict deadlines while making safety a top priority.
