A Little History About
LaserShip & OnTrac
See the story behind how LaserShip and Ontrac came to combine their complementary East and West delivery footprints to become the first pure-play, transcontinental partner of choice for last-mile e-commerce deliveries.
Laser Courier is Founded
Remember the ‘Domino’s 30 minutes or it’s free’ campaign that helped catapult the pizza chain to success? When LaserShip (previously Laser Courier) was founded in 1986, a few friends set out to be the best document delivery business in the Washington, DC metro area. To stand out amongst its competitors in a highly-fragmented industry, Laser Courier appealed to businesses with a similar ‘15-minute call-to-pick-up’ campaign, accomplished by having delivery drivers strategically located throughout the city and poised for action. Speed and unparalleled service would contribute to LaserShip’s success for many years to come.
OnTrac is Founded
OnTrac started in 1991 as California Overnight. It was a division of its now 60-year old parent company Express Messenger Systems, Inc.(EMS). EMS began in Canada and expanded its operation through the acquisitions of several Canadian and American courier companies. They saw an opportunity to provide a more affordable next-day service from Los Angeles to San Francisco and created California Overnight.
Barnes & Noble Becomes LaserShip’s First E-Commerce Customer
Laser Courier unveiled lasership.com and began doing business as LaserShip to explore last-mile deliveries for this thing called e-commerce during the dot-com boom. With a new name and online business in tow, LaserShip set out to sign on Barnes & Noble as its very first e-commerce customer to provide last-mile book deliveries in New York City. Although LaserShip maintains its cornerstone business delivery services until today, LaserShip decided to shift gears and focus its growth in e-commerce. Today, Barnes & Noble is still a LaserShip customer. The rest is history.
LaserShip Launches Global Critical Delivery Division
LaserShip expanded its service offerings by starting its Global Critical Delivery (GCD) division, providing air and ground delivery solutions for critical aviation and medical shipments. While LaserShip’s e-commerce and business deliveries are limited to the US, the GCD division provides delivery solutions around the world. In 2018, the GCD team made over 2,500 life-saving organ deliveries and helped get more than 14,000 airplanes off the ground, back in the air, and to their final destinations.
2008 - Present:
OnTrac Parcel Logistics & Over 65 Million Consumers
Since 2008, OnTrac has reached over 65 million consumers without paying the extra fees charged by other companies. Today, OnTrac Logistics Network connects companies to local delivery professionals through leading technology, advanced material-handling, and excellent customer service. We are a SmartWay Transport Partner, a USPS Workshare Partner, and integrate with over 30 multi-solution software providers. OnTrac provides a more efficient last-mile logistics strategy, lending the abilities you expect without sacrificing flexibility, professionalism, and cost.
LaserShip Acquires Prestige Delivery Systems
In 2014, LaserShip acquired Cleveland-based Prestige Delivery Systems, nearly doubling the company’s footprint and team. Today, LaserShip’s last-mile ground delivery network consists of more than 60 distribution centers and 4 sort centers across 23 states that reach over 140 million consumers in the US. LaserShip has evolved into a leading provider of same-day and next-day delivery services in the Eastern and Midwest U.S. for e-commerce and product-supply businesses, including some of the largest retailers in the world.
LaserShip & OnTrac Merge
LaserShip merged with OnTrac with a vision to create a proven alternative to the national carriers by combining their complementary East and West coast operating footprints

On July 27, 2022, that vision became a reality with the launch of our transcontinental delivery service to move packages from coast to coast in as little as 3 days.
