Dedicated Couriers
Same courier every day.

Additional Highlights: 

  • American Courier is the only local firm authorized and fully trained in the transport of stem cells. 
  • Our drivers are TSA Certified.
  • ALL couriers are fully trained up to OHSA and US DOT qualifications.
  • We are also HIPAA Compliant.

We Charge By The Stop
Why outsource to a company that mimics what you already do: hourly pay, owned vehicles, and the same number of couriers? Since American Courier charges by stop instead of hourly, costs are significantly reduced, usually by 15-20%.

American Courier is a full-service company. We perform all services only with American Courier drivers. Other companies will subcontract out ”STAT” orders and on-call orders. If a problem arises, we can respond instantly.

Over 40 years of servicing the Healthcare Industry.

On behalf of Community Healthcare System, I wanted to convey our thanks to American Courier Service and its drivers that came through during Friday's and Saturday's rough weather conditions. Healthcare does not stop because of blizzards and we're happy to have a company such as yours as our partner in making sure that services to our patients were not interrupted. The challenges and risks your drivers endured during the storm did not go unnoticed. Please thank them for a job well done.

We wish a safe and joyous holiday season for all of you and your families so when you have dinner with the family print this email pass it around and even though it might not seem like you wear a lab coat, you do... Your above and beyond the Call of Duty efforts have impacted the life of many cancer patients, please let them know that...
