welcome to red express


One of Adelaide’s largest and most trusted locally owned independent freight and logistics companies.

Proudly South Australian for Nearly 60 Years

For nearly 60 years RED Express Deliveries has been one of Adelaide’s largest and most trusted locally owned independent freight and logistics companies. And being a family owned and operated business has a lot to do with this success.

We are fiercely loyal to and protective of our regular clients. You will find us highly accommodating of our clients’ needs and generous with the time and personal attention that the family at RED and I give.

Central to our mission of providing exemplary service is the understanding of our clients' businesses and their expectations. For this reason we would much rather talk with our clients.

You will discover that, whilst we offer all of the on-line options for doing business with us, we’d much rather talk with you and fully understand your wishes to tailor a service to suit.

We further work very hard to maintain our ‘pack leader’ status within our industry. We continually seek to implementing leading-edge and best-practice services that will make your experience with RED satisfying and rewarding.

If you are seeking an honest, reliable and cost-competitive business to service your logistics needs, I would be very pleased to personally demonstrate the RED experience to you.

Our Partnerships

A joint Venture To Better The Needs of south australia

I am very pleased to advise you that RED Express has entered into an exclusive alliance with another leading Australian transport company, AirRoad. We will combine our resources, with a view to not only improve the service in SA, but to also offer you an excellent Interstate service.

The services will continue to include our Couriers, Taxi Trucks, the twice daily Parcel Express and SA Country Distribution, but will now be augmented, by a comprehensive interstate Line haul and Distribution network, offering you a door to door service, across the country.

The alliance, combining two successful, Australian, privately owned businesses, remains fully committed to the highest client service standards and will continue to focus on leading the market.

RED Express will relocate to the current AirRoad depot, at 4 Birralee Rd Regency Park, and I will lead the combined operation and the team at the new site.

My Promise to you

I promise you that what we say we will do, we will do! Having said that though, I am aware that just sometimes, things don’t necessarily go as well as you or I would like. It’s in these instances that you will be very pleased that you chose to give your business to RED Express, a family business. Because, if you believe RED has let you down,

I would like you to call and speak with me – personally. I promise that I will sort out your issue quickly and to your absolute satisfaction. And I want to do this because firstly, your business is far too important to us here at RED to have you unhappy and secondly, I want to know where we went wrong and why – and fix that problem."
