Southern Illinois Motor Xpress was established in 1962 by Mr. Willard Arbeiter. In 1988 the operating authority was purchased by Mr. Mark Arbeiter who remains as the President and CEO of the company. Mr. Arbeiter started this endeavor with two trucks and has grown the fleet to nearly two hundred trucks and four hundred trailers. SIMX has experienced vast growth and expansion. Throughout the years the commodities hauled have evolved. SIMX serves customers throughout the United States and multiple provinces in Canada. 
The SIMX Fleet consists of a variety of late model tractors and trailers. Mr. Arbeiter has made a commitment to safety, quality and reliability to his customers, drivers and to the public. SIMX’s Federal Motor Carrier safety scores are a great reflection of this commitment. We are very proud of our safety scores and encourage you to look at them. They can be found here. 

Our diverse fleet also provides our professional drivers with a variety of equipment to utilize. We currently operate Mack, International, Kenworth, Freightliner and Peterbuilt tractors. Our Trailer fleet consists of pneumatic trailers (food grade and non-food grade), hopper bottom trailers, liquid trailers and walking floor trailers.
