In the beginning, as many stories go, way back in 1998 there was a man with a dream and about $1,000.00. This man, Jerry Keen, wanted to forge his dream by becoming one of the few carriers to run to the West Coast and bring back fresh, from-the-ground produce to our area in Middle Tennessee. As time went on, Jerry was not only able to realize his dream but he was also able to build a strong, reliable company in the process. Located in the heart of LaVergne’s bustling industrial park district just outside of Nashville, Commodore Express has been growing and building its partnerships for years, giving them a solid foundation for new and exciting opportunities.
Recently, Mr. Keen decided to pass the reigns to John King, his long-time righthand man and his wife Debby. John and Debby purchased the company in November of 2017. John started his career in the field of logistics as a dispatcher with a local carrier based in Nashville in 1997. He gradually worked his way up to General Manager for a large carrier in Shelbyville before coming to work for Commodore Express in 2008. Debby has over 25 years of experience in accounting and safety management and brings her own set of skills to the team.
At Commodore Express, we continue to strive to add value for our customers through technology via our website, our team and our equipment.
