Our Story

Blue Thunder Transportation Services, Inc. got its start as a small brokerage operation in 1991 in a small Illinois town. Since then we have expanded our services to include a full-line cartage operation that handles local and short-haul deliveries. We offer our trucking, warehousing and related handling services throughout the continental United States and most of Canada.

We still call the Prairie State home but are proud to say that our expedited LTL shipping services are available throughout all 50 states.

Prompt Shipping


Here at Blue Thunder, we stand behind our promise to provide quality services quickly. It takes a lot of work to build a solid reputation. Our team of experts has earned its great reputation through consistent and successful transportation of time-sensitive materials.

We understand that you have urgent delivery needs. That’s why we work on strict deadlines to ensure your business never has a late or misrouted delivery.


Monitored Shipments

We also carefully monitor every shipment—from the time your product is picked up until the time it is delivered at the final destination and signed for by your customer. And you can feel confident knowing that we’ll alert you of the date and time of each delivery, as well as the name of the person who signed to receive it.

Your freight is in good hands when you choose Blue Thunder Transportation. Please contact us to learn how we can accommodate your specific shipping needs.
