Who We Are, What We Do and Why We Do It

GDS Express is a family-owned trucking company that believes in the value of people. We know our drivers by name, and we care about our customers. GDS provides superior capacity, technology and service, while still maintaining long-term personal relationships with our owner operators, drivers, office staff and vendors.

GDS provides fast, reliable service in 48 states, with general freight and garment-on-hangers (GOH) service in both the U.S. and Mexico. We offer 98.8% on-time delivery and best-in-class customer service.

The dream of one man

With just 7 owner operators and 35 trailers, Jack Delaney founded GDS Express to handle GOH shipments for Montgomery Ward®. Two years later, Jack’s son, J.P. Delaney, joined the effort. Together, they enforced core values like respect and communication, as well as an open-door policy, to grow GDS as a successful business and supportive, family-friendly employer.

Our Mission

Simple but effective, our mission is to deliver our customers’ freight – safely and on time – while providing our employees, owner operators and company drivers a secure and rewarding career.
