Our past 24 years in business have produced tremendous growth by the father and son team of Levorn and Marvin Robinson. We are proud of what we have accomplished so far at Alpha Express.
The initial launch as a shuttle service began in 1989 by Mr. Levorn Robinson. Levorn and his son Marvin worked with clientele that wanted goods transported in and out of Iowa's Waterloo Regional Airport. It didn't take long for businesses in the area to recognize Robinson's high standards for quality and professionalism in managing their parcels.
By 1996, Levorn decided to transition from the specialized Robinson's Airport Shuttle and Delivery Service to a full delivery service, and that's when we became Alpha Express, Inc. Our trucks—including gooseneck 40 feet trailers, cargo vans or 26 feet trucks—are still based in eastern Iowa and we will send packages nationwide. Our uniformed employees are dedicated to giving back to Iowa and the Midwest with our 24-hour delivery or same day parcel delivery services.
Just because we're first in delivery does not mean that's all we do at Alpha Express. We noticed the demand for additional services and we listened to our Iowa-based businesses. Even as Iowa and the rest of the nation endured economic hardships, Alpha Express increased its services and kept locals employed as our success grew.
Expansion of services
In 2004, we took advantage of the demand for parking lot sweeping and striping services. Years of wear and tear fade away parking spaces, and we knew it was important to make sure local and regional businesses had clear, available spaces for their customers.
Adding this service was simple to do because were able to pitch the service to commercial businesses with sizable parking lots. Adding clear, definitive lines to a parking lot lessened drivers' chances of getting towed.
As parking lot maintenance became an integral part of our business, we decided to make that service available year-round to our loyal customers. Fulfilling these needs for our clients allows them to remain open and continue to serve their own customers.
Alpha Express' standards of professionalism and quality work is demonstrated through our delivery and parking lot services.
National delivery service
We may be an Iowa-based delivery business, but we have also served others throughout the continental United States since 1996. At Alpha Express, we're first in delivery, and since it was clear that our local delivery service model worked well in the Midwest region, we decided to branch out nationally.
Whether a client has to send a few parcels or an entire pallet's worth of shipments, Alpha Express is committed to making sure it will be delivered in a timely manner. If customers need same-day or two-truck driver services, so be it. All of our vehicles have GPS tracking, allowing businesses to have the most updated estimated time of arrival for their goods.
If anyone has questions on our nationwide courier service, feel free to give Alpha Express a call. Our drivers and help line ambassadors work 24 hours a day to make sure you have all the information you need on your package. Regardless of the size of the delivery, each parcel is properly managed by our staff.
