About Us

Our Mission

Chicago Suburban Express is committed to service. We are dedicated to delivering your freight on time and in good condition. We will handle each of your calls professionally and make sure that if it can be done, we will do it. You will never talk to a computer and you will know the person you are talking with. We offer old time personal service with modern day technology, “the best of both worlds.”

Our History

Chicago Suburban Express started with five trucks in 1963. CSX has grown steadily to a fleet of sixty trucks today. We have never forgotten that customer service and that doing things others can't do have helped us carve a niche in the industry. We strive to upgrade our technology base without losing that personal touch. We look forward to being there for you in the years to come.

Executive Partners

Doug McClement, Jerry Hickey and Doug Stephan have a combined total of 96 years of experience in the transportation industry.
