TLSI Triangle

Welcome to TLSI
& Cayman Express LLC​

Established in 1992, the founder, Melody Warren, saw a need for reliable freight service providers in an industry where commitment was lacking. Her industry experience had taught her to always provide the truth about a customer’s freight, no matter the consequences. Her integrity and constant customer communication helped provide solutions to her customers and with that Transportation Logistics Systems Inc (TLSI) got its start on the third floor of her Waldo home.​

It did not take long for the staff to grow when the company’s core values were applied to customer freight. The team moved into a historic 2-story building in 1998.​

TLSI quickly grew into a full-service, third-party logistics provider with an established customer base, including both Fortune 500 and smaller companies. They relied on TLSI as their “in-house” shipping department, building long-term partnerships.​

FedEx Custom Critical

In 2004, TLSI leased on to FedEx’s Custom Critical division. This venture continues to operate today – eighteen years later. Our fleet of refrigerated trucks delivers, time and temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals all over the US. Having the opportunity to work with FedEx was a big step and an exciting venture for the company.​

Cayman Express, LLC

The next big move came in 2015, with the addition of Cayman Express, LLC. Our customers clearly demonstrated a need for 53-foot dry vans. With our customer’s support, Cayman Express was started. Now the TLSI family of companies can fulfill our customer’s requirements in totality – by either providing direct asset-based service or through brokering.​
