Blue Streak began in 1984 as a small courier in Jacksonville, Florida. In its early years, the company operated mostly in northeast Florida, offering same-day delivery service to local businesses and organizations. From its origin, Blue Streak has maintained its dedication to offering the most professional, reliable, and friendly service to its customers.
In 2005, Harold Boyett, a 20-year UPS employee, became the new owner of Blue Streak Couriers. He saw great potential for the small courier to become a multi-state, versatile logistics company. With more than a decade of management in transportation under his belt and an enthusiastic devotion to enhancing and expanding a small business, Boyett set forth on his mission to transform Blue Streak into a southeastern regional carrier.
Blue Streak now does business in over 20 states across the nation. Its sales have tripled, and its staff has grown from four to 34 with over 140 independent contractors. The business moved from its humble beginnings in a small rental property to a new office and warehouse, purchased to accommodate the company’s rapid growth. Additionally, Blue Streak now has an extensive network of warehousing facilities across the nation, allowing the company to expand its territory, while still remaining flexible and customer-focused.
In addition to expanding geographically in the past decade, Blue Streak has also widened the scope of industries it serves. Initially, the courier company worked mostly with banks, moving deposits and documents throughout the city. Now Blue Streak serves a much greater variety of customers, including medical labs, restaurants suppliers, and attorneys.
Boyett attributes the company’s success to its steadfast, hard-working team – some of whom have been at Blue Streak as long or longer than he has. “I am fortunate to work with a wonderful group of individuals who offer their amazing talents and dedication every day. Together, we strive to bring our customers the most innovative and reliable service possible.”
