About Us

Our Story

We’ve come a long way from 2007, when ShipEX was started with just one truck and one trailer. In just over ten years, we’ve grown exponentially to well over 350 trucks, but our desire to make a difference has remained the same. We have stayed true to our roots – many of us were still driving not that long ago, so we understand the sacrifices that drivers make and what it takes to get the job done. We still call every driver by their first name and we do our best provide the best experience possible for them.

Our commitment to excellence in service and quality has made us a preferred motor freight carrier for time and temperature sensitive products. Our customers appreciate our dedication to their success, and our ability to develop creative solutions to meet their unique transportation and logistics needs.

We are huge proponents of giving back when you are able and firmly believe that if you do good, then it will always come back to you. ShipEX has a robust history of charitable giving and community engagement.

Our Mission

ShipEX is committed to delivering the highest quality transportation and logistics services possible, while simultaneously giving back and improving the lives of everyone we come in contact with, from our employees, to our customers, and our community.

Meet Our Team

Eldin Diglisic

Chairman & CEO

Eldin moved to the United States in 1997 to learn English and attend a U.S. University. After graduating from the University of Utah, Eldin decided to go into the Investment banking industry. After a successful, but less than fulfilling career as an investment banker, he decided to explore the Supply Chain/Logistics industry. Eldin saw an opportunity to apply the business acumen he had acquired to disrupt the industry and improve the experience of his fellow drivers. That is how the idea of ShipEX was born. Started with one truck and trailer in 2007, and it continued to evolve and expand from there. From the very beginning, Eldin realized that the bar was set very low for drivers, so he decided to incrementally improve the industry and introduce Salary pay, 100% healthcare benefits, etc..

Eldin's dedication to learning and growth lead him to continue his education at Harvard Business School.
