Dependable Express was recently featured in Courier Magazine. Company owner Shelly Miller and company president Jason Miller were interviewed by the magazine about how the company has evolved since it began in 2002 and how employees are recruited and retained.
Courier Magazine: Can you explain how Dependable Express was founded?
Jason Miller: I didn’t purposely set out to get into the transportation and logistics industry, I just stumbled into it. I was 19 years old and needed a job; it was that simple.

I was the company president, janitor, IT department, maintenance guy and only delivery driver.
