Larkin Express Logistics Opens Delaware Avenue Headquarters


Larkin Express Logistics has opened the doors on its full-scale  freight brokerage that offers transportation and logistics services  across a wide range of industries in North America. The company is  investing nearly $700,000 at its 737 Delaware Avenue location and will  create up to 53 new full-time jobs over the next five years. Larkin Express connects shippers with a network of pre-qualified local, regional, and national carriers.


Empire State Development has offered up to $300,000 in  performance-based Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits, which are tied to  job creation commitments, to encourage Larkin Express Logistics to  locate in Buffalo.


Empire State Development President, CEO & Commissioner Howard  Zemsky said, “In deciding to launch its logistics business in Buffalo,  Larkin Express is the latest company choosing to locate and create jobs  in Western New York, where it will join a growing number of businesses  that benefit from the region’s talented workforce, affordable real  estate, and supportive business community.”


Don De Laria, president of Larkin Express Logistics, said, “Our  competitive advantage is the people we hire, which was a major draw to  the Buffalo Niagara region. Our research prior to choosing Buffalo spoke  highly of the local work ethic. Now we’re seeing it firsthand as we  ramp up hiring. Empire State Development, Invest Buffalo Niagara and the  entire business community in Buffalo have been so welcoming and  helpful, it’s truly incredible.”


Larkin Express Logistics connects shippers to temperature controlled,  flatbed, heavy-haul and other vehicles ideally equipped to get the job  done efficiently. Its location in Buffalo is ideal for facilitating  cross border transport needs. The company is currently hiring business  development, account management, and carrier operations staff.


Invest Buffalo Niagara, the nonprofit, privately-funded economic  development organization representing the eight counties of Western New  York, provided services and project management to help facilitate Larkin  Express Logistics locating in the city.
