BUCHANAN, Mich., March 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Express-1, a division of Express-1 Expedited Solutions, Inc. (AMEX:XPO), a premium transportation and logistics provider, has received the Redbud Business of the Year award from the Chamber of Commerce. Express-1, which was recently named one of Inbound Logistics' Top 100 Motor Freight Carriers, was recognized by the Chamber for its volunteer efforts in the community.

We think it is very important to support the communities where our employees raise their families. Our business is very dependent on having the right culture for our employees to work, and we feel our community efforts help develop a very productive and fun atmosphere for our employees.
