The History of Blaze Express Courier Services

THE START

Blaze Express Courier Service, a locally owned family business, was established in New Orleans in 1975. With a borrowed van, a shared office and $1000.00 in his pocket, Charles J. Wolfe founded Barnett Services, Inc which later would become Blaze Express Courier Service, and began serving the New Orleans business community. As his wife Ellie was caring for their six children, she also found herself running the office. In between changing diapers she would answer the phone and handle other administrative tasks as Charles was out making deliveries and handling the operational end of the business.
