Midwest Express is a female owned & family operated company that began in 2007.


After working at the SOS drivers facility for 14 years I decided to start my own company, 97 Grain & Trucking, LLC. My husband and I offered hay grinding services & wet feed hauling to the local farmers around Macomb IL. As we built trust & confidence with our customer base, our business expanded & we began providing services across the Midwest. We added a broad range of trailers & trucks, to offer more services, combined with experienced & dependable drivers. When our services & territory expanded in 2012 it only made sense to begin doing business as Midwest Express.  

Our business has been built on great customer service & building relationships. We believe in taking care of our drivers to ensure they are taking care of our customers. We are not just a company, we are a family. Contact us today to learn more, you can always speak to the owner.
