Frank Martin is a professional driver known as the "transporter" to those who are looking for their packages to be moved. Frank can get anything, anywhere, for anyone, and all you have to do is pay. We catch up to Frank in the middle of another transport deal, to move three guys and about 254 kilos of cargo. Frank waits and four guys get into the car, obviously from robbing a bank, but Frank refuses to move at all. Frank has rules when it comes to transporting and rule number one is to never change the deal and he refuses to move.
Frank's next job is to deliver a package to a gangster who is known to most as Wall Street. After getting a flat tire and pulling over to fix the flat Frank breaks one of his own rules after hearing noises from the trunk and opens the package to find a woman. Frank delivers the package as he was hired to do but he knows he should have never broken his own rules and suspects something when Wall Street hires him to deliver another package, a briefcase. Turns out the briefcase is a time bomb and explodes destroying Frank's car but Frank survives.
Trying to blow him up only makes Frank angry as he returns to Wall Street's residence and starts beating up his guards and henchman before finding the original car with the package still inside. Back at his own home Frank lets the package, a woman named Lai, out into his home and the two get to know one another. The following day a police inspector Tarconi arrives asking if Frank may known anything about the destroyed car and its scorched license plate only to leave without any answers.
Lai decides to break into the police department and search through their records to find out who kidnapped her and why. She finds out that Wall Street is trafficking in people and has two full size shipping containers of Chinese immigrants, some of whom are her own family, and they plan to let them all die. Frank takes Lai along with him to Wall Street's offices in hopes of finding some of the shipping and dock information hoping to find the location of the shipping containers. The two are found by Wall Street and his henchmen and are nearly killed, knocking Frank unconscious and only stop from killing him when the police inspector and arrests Frank, to save him, and catches a glimpse of a man on a display that Lai left up.
At the police station can't seem to explain exactly what is going on so decides rather to escape the police station. The inspector lets Frank go knowing that what he is doing is the right thing since Frank is a former military man. Frank begins the search of all the containers for the immigrants, along with Lai, in hopes to save their lives. We find out that Lai's father has been in on the human trafficking the entire time.
Frank and Lai discover that the containers are now on trucks and Frank manages to hijack an airplane at gunpoint before parachuting down onto the trucks. Wall Street tries to fight Frank only to be thrown out of his truck and onto the highway and Frank pulls the truck over. Lai's father finds Frank and holds a gun to him threatening to kill him only to have Lai shoot her father in the back before he can shoot and kill Frank. Frank and Lai open and free the people in the containers together.
