Carrier Partnership Spotlight – Double D Express, Inc.

Team Evans

24 March 2022

It's the newest installment in our "Carrier Spotlights" series, focusing on some of the relationships we've built at Evans throughout the years.

We're proud of these partnerships and look forward to finding transportation solutions for our valued customers for many more years!

Our spotlight this month is Double D Express Inc, based in Peru, IL. They've been in business since 1985 when Gary Dahl saw the need for a reliable Illinois LTL carrier.

Evans has been working with Double D for a little over a year now, and we see several parallels in how we both approach business.

We asked Josh Francque at Double D a few questions about 3PL partners, relationships, etc. Here's what he had to say:

Like Evans, we cultivate relationships and earn business based on our integrity and trust. What we look for in a 3PL partner is support. There is a wide variety of 3PLs in the market today, but we are looking for a partner who helps us help their customers. We all need to succeed.

When it comes to building relationships with regional carriers, communication is vital. Many carriers, including Double D Express, have a specific niche. Do your homework, and you'll be able to fit the carrier to your customers' needs.

As far as challenges go, there's been a crisis around every corner over the past two years. During these times and always, we focus on our core values – relationship and service.


We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Josh! At Evans, we pride ourselves on being attentive to the carrier's operations and are always finding transportation management solutions for them, no matter their niche.

Thanks to Josh for taking the time to chat with us, and we appreciate the Double D partnership! Here's to many more years working together.

If you are looking to Keep Moving Forward like Double D Express, contact us today, and we'll get rolling.
