We started as a small family owned company in 1945.  See the timeline below how Vince Anderson trucking in 1945 became what it is today--A&A Express.  With hundreds of trucks on the road, we have grown into a multi-million dollar company with hundreds of employees.  We also provide freight and logistics for companies and brands we see in stores every day.  Our attention to detail and safety record is second to none.
