History + Philosophy

Our origins guide our future.


Jimmy Allen founded Venture Express, Inc. in 1981 with a single truck. Now Venture Express is one of the South’s finest fleets, operating over 500 tractor-trailers. Headquartered in LaVergne, TN, Venture Express is the premier carrier for high-volume, time-sensitive shippers who need best-in-class transport 24/7, 365 days a year.


When you take care of the most important people, they take care of you. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing incredible service to our customers, and treating each of our drivers as cornerstones of our success. Continual investment in service delivery and the success of our employees is our path to be the best in the transportation industry.
