Our history

Armellini has a long history of innovative shipping services

In 1945, Jules "Toots" Armellini and his wife Sarah began transporting flowers from Vineland, New Jersey into Philadelphia and New York City. They started with one truck and utilized a barn as their terminal.

Through hard work and a commitment to customer satisfaction, their first business, Armellini Express Lines, prospered. Soon, a small fleet of trucks added New England to its service area. In 1953, Armellini began hauling product out of Florida, and moved its corporate headquarters to the heart of Florida's flower growing region ten years later.

Jules Armellini has always been at the forefront of new technology in floral transportation; he contributed to the design of the first "flower specific" refrigeration units for trailers, was the first to use wooden decking to split the trailer to relieve pressure on the flower boxes and promote air circulation, and was also the first to use satellite tracking to pinpoint the position of all trucks.

With a fleet of 150 trucks and a reputation for prompt, quality service, Armellini Express Lines, Inc. continues to flourish.
