All of Lightning Express’s drivers are HIPAA and OSHA compliant with all federal and state government statutes. They have received extensive training and can handle any type of emergency. Every vehicle in our fleet has both spill kits and medical gloves readily available.

The importance of being both HIPAA and OSHA compliant is two-fold. First, it ensures that our drivers have the skills and knowledge to handle any emergency situation. Secondly, it offers our clients the peace of mind of knowing that their packages are as secure and safe as possible, no matter what circumstances they will be traveling under. A good example of this is when Lightning Express is hired to carry a transplant organ.

A healthy organ only has a specific amount of time that it will remain viable and suitable for use as a transplant. Our drivers understand that a transplant organ is not only time sensitive, it is also life-saving. That is why we train each of our drivers to operate any vehicle, under any conditions and circumstances. Our dedication to providing the fastest, most efficient delivery is what makes our company so successful. We do what it takes and don't stop until everything has been taken care of from ordering to the sending of the signature confirmation.

Our drivers are trained to be effective and efficient, in addition to keeping concise and highly detailed notes. These notes always contain the chain of custody of a package, as well as any reportable incidences that occurred during its transport. We scrutinize and test each driver over and over again to make sure they are in complete compliance. We expect each of our drivers to focused on their job and able to give 110% to each client and their respective delivery.
