About Arrow Messenger


In 1974, founder and president Phyllis Apelbaum created a true "service" organization focusing on two central philosophies.


  • Recruit hard working, friendly couriers; compensate them fairly and treat them as your greatest asset.
  • Give clients true delivery value and do whatever it takes to meet and exceed client expectations, day in, day out.


Today thousands of clients, from two people offices to Fortune 500 firms, count on Arrow, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We provide fast, effective solutions to delivery needs, with prompt, reliable services and courteous, professional couriers. As a local, family owned and operated business, Arrow is large enough to meet virtually every delivery need; yet we are still small enough that our friendly and knowledgeable staff offers personalized, individual attention to every client.


Beginning in 1974, Arrow has developed industry-specific courier and facility management solutions. Arrow provides a variety of support services for all types of specialized delivery and logistical needs. Our 175+ couriers are ready to serve and represent your organization in a prompt and professional manner. To further accommodate the needs of our clientele Arrow's professional facilities management team supplies additional personnel and management services. Since 1993, Arrow has been the recognized leader in Chicago for outsourced staffing services.

WE PERFORM: Measuring success one minute and one package at a time, we are committed to providing the highest on-time delivery performance available in Chicagoland.

WE PROTECT OUR CLIENTS: Arrow maintains an insurance program, including Workers Compensation, general liability, cargo and vehicle insurance, to protect customers and employees alike.

WE REPRESENT YOU WELL: Our highly trained messengers add professionalism to your delivery and lend security in both you and your client's place of work.
