Building on a working relationship spanning over 15 years, Ross Express, now a 74-year-old freight forwarding and logistics company, has again selected JM Coull as its Design-Build Director for the construction of their new cross-dock trucking terminal. When completed, the new facility will be the third major project, and fourth overall, to be completed by JM Coull for Ross Express.
