Our Journey: From One Truck and One Goal to Becoming America’s #1 Expedite Carrier
C5 Expedite's story is one of relentless determination, unwavering commitment, and remarkable growth. It all began with a dream - a dream that our founders, Clayton Ramsden and Dean Ramsden, transformed into a reality. With over 90 sprinter vans, a dedicated team for specialized shipments, and the title of America’s #1 nationwide expedite carrier, we've exceeded even our wildest expectations.
C5’s Founding Story
In 2014, the father-and-son duo of Clayton and Dean Ramsden embarked on a journey that was destined to be filled with hurdles and challenges. But with each obstacle they overcame and each goal they set, they honed their skills in a singular pursuit: serving the customer at the highest possible level. This meant answering calls at 1 or 2 o'clock in the morning, driven by an unwavering "whatever it takes" mentality.
A Testament to Perseverance
Today, C5 has grown to serve more than 200 loyal customers nationwide and has successfully completed an astounding 20,000 shipments. Our family has expanded to include over 40 dedicated associates, and our reach extends to offices in Wisconsin Rapids, WI (Admin Office), Oak Brook, IL (Operations Office), and Naples, FL (Corporate Office). This journey stands as a testament to the power of perseverance, the spirit of innovation, and the significance of our customer-centric approach.
