Hassett Moving & Storage was founded in 1939 and became one of the original agents for Allied Van Lines in Chicago, IL as a local and interstate moving company. In 1969, the company moved its headquarters to Elmhurst, IL where it thrived for 36 years. Following a management buyout in 1980, a new subsidiary was formed to offer freight forwarding services. Hassett Air Express quickly grew to become a leader in the air freight market and expanded its footprint throughout the country.
The company transferred ownership in October, 2013, to then-President Michelle Halkerston. Hassett Air Express along with the newly formed Hassett Logistics is now part of Hassett Express, LLC, a full service transportation and logistics company. In June, 2016 Hassett's corporate headquarters relocated to Oakbrook Terrace, IL providing a larger, more modern work space. Michelle and the management team have a long history with Hassett and are committed to grow Hassett Express while maintaining the same traditions and integrity that our customers have come to know.
