About Us

East-West Express was founded in 1985 by Owner and President Richard Cangemi. Just as our name says, we run a dedicated east to west route. Our team drivers haul various general commodity freight to the west coast and return with fresh and frozen vegetables. For more than 30 years, East-West Express has been a premier carrier for many Fortune 100 companies thanks to our award-winning quality and service. Our drivers are one of the keys to our success, and we strive to give them a great experience, both at home and on the road.


“We have enjoyed working here because the company is very family oriented and if you have a problem you can talk to anyone. It is also pet friendly and there is not a size or breed limit. We have always had newer trucks that have DirecTV and satellite radio.”

“We have worked for East West Express for a total of 10 plus years with over 2 million safe miles. We enjoy the traffic lanes that we operate in. The loads can be very challenging at times but as a whole East West is a good company to work for and they continue to add more new equipment constantly. We hope to be here till retirement time.”

“We have traveled with 3 dogs and have a lot of fun. We have TV, SiriusXM radio and a refrigerator. We average between 5200 and 6000 miles a week. We are out for 3 weeks and then we are off for a week. East-West is a family oriented company. They offer fuel bonus, production bonus, high mileage bonus and Texas 2 step bonus. So every three months you could add an additional $1000 to your check. We try hard to save these bonuses.”

“Why we drive for East-West? Well, the Home Time is awesome; the lanes that we drive are awesome; the equipment we drive is awesome, not to mention the people that we work with are also awesome. That’s why we chose East-West!”
