A History Of Proven Success
The Samra family had an aspiring vision, a vision of a company unlike any other - a company where people came before anything else, where - determined employees could be paired with the latest superior equipment and advanced technology , where customers could become more than business acquaintances, where they become partners. This vision resulted in a level of performance far exceeding any competitor. This is when our pursuit of excellence began. Founded as a family-owned and operated business, the Samra family took Capital Express Lines to the road as an independent carrier in January of 2001. Initially founded with just 1 truck, Capital has experienced tremendous yet steady growth. Since our journey started over a decade ago, we have earned our reputation as a premier carrier in the west.
People-Oriented Growth, Customer Satisfaction Driven
Since the beginning, Capital has been influenced by the philosophy that success starts and ends with people. Our organization has succeded for three main reasons:
- First, we continuously equip our employees with outstanding tools and technologies, training and challenging them to meet the highest performance standards.
- Second, we listen to our employees, encouraging their proactive problem-solving skills, and fostering their desire to improve our organization from within.
- Third, our collaborative efforts with strategic partners creates innovative ideas for future success.
Considered more than just a trucking company, Capital Express Lines is a total logistics solution. We offer a full line of transportation services to manage every aspect of your supply chain. That award-winning service matched with the pursuit of excellence has always characterized Capital Express Lines and its dedicated employees.
