Company Bio

Our Beginning
Relay Express was founded in February 1986 on the vision and optimism of Mike Bernecker, Matt Seiter, and Robert Smith. Through a belief in hard work and a mindset to do anything it took to get the job done for their customers, Mike, Matt, and Bob set Relay Express on a path to growth that continues today.  At that time, each employee did everything necessary to satisfy customers while driving the business forward. That “intrapreneurial” spirit is the foundation for our success.

Focused Growth
Since 1986, Relay Express has expanded its reach to service Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Michigan. The company evolved from a focus on local pick-up and delivery into a full-service Logistical Solutions Provider.

Relay Express has been perennially recognized for its wide variety of Logistical Solutions and customer service, including INC. Magazine’s fastest-growing private companies, Cincinnati Magazine’s best, and FedEx New Carrier of the Year.

Relay Express is a Logistical Solutions Provider with over 38 plus years of experience delivering courier, trucking, and warehousing services to business operating throughout the Midwest region.

From packages to pallets, we can ship, store, or deliver your products across town or across the country.

At Relay Express, we offer a customer service experience that’s second to none.  Our professional and knowledgeable staff are committed to forming solutions-based relationships with our partners and customers.
