Korea Express (hangul:대한통운, KOREX, Korea Express, KRX: 000120) is South Korea's largest total cargo delivery company, delivering over 20 million packages a day to over 100 countries around the world. It has expanded its operations to include logistics and other transportation-related areas. It is headquartered in Seoul, Korea.

Korea Express is known for its orange trucks, also known as cargo trucks (hence the company nickname "Big Orange"). Daehan Logistics also operates its own commercial vehicles.

Major competitors include Korean National Railroad (Korail), Hanjin, and Koryeo Golden Box. Historically, KOREX only faced competition from Korail for the inexpensive ground based delivery market. However, Hanjin have expanded into the ground market by acquiring RPS (originally Roadway Package System) and rebranded it as Hanjin Ground. In addition, Koryeo Golden Box acquired Korail. This acquisition increases Hanjin presence in Korea which will add more competition to the ground delivery market.

Daehan Logistics offers ground and air transportation, rail and over-the-road freight products; international trade management; customs brokerage; consulting and supply chain design; e-commerce solutions; logistics and distribution capabilities, and financial services related to the supply chain.
