FreightCenter chosen for "Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50 List"


June 15, 2012 ;— FreightCenter, an online freight shipping service provider and freight software developer, has been recognized for a third consecutive year in regards to its sustainable business model and total revenue gain over a three-year period. The Tampa Bay Business Journal will announce the list maker rankings in an awards ceremony to be held in Tampa next month.

In accordance with nomination requirements determined by CBIZ Kirkland Russ Murphy & Tapp, a public accounting firm based in Clearwater, FreightCenter proved a remarkable 135 percent growth from 2009 to 2011. The company’s progress in online freight shipping automation has steered its development of proprietary freight software for enterprise, online retailers and supply chains.

"Over the past four years, we’ve identified new standards for success," said Matthew Brosious, chief executive officer and co-founder of FreightCenter. "Doubling revenues generated by effective freight processing has become an annual benchmark."

Since 2008, the freight software provider has doubled the annual revenue it generates by helping more than a million shippers to secure volume-discounted freight pricing from reliable nationwide carriers. FreightCenter operates in Pasco County and generates all of its business through secure online freight shipping and logistics service transactions.

"Our business model is unique in that we hire in-house developers to create the freight software we use internally to process shipments, as well as license externally to businesses that need a method of managing inbound and outbound freight shipments," said Doug Walls, chief information officer for FreightCenter.

The Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2012 Fast 50 List is sponsored by Shumaker Loop & Kendrick LLP, CBIZ Kirkland Russ Murphy & Tapp, Sandler Training, the Tampa Bay Lightning and TD Bank. The Tampa Bay Business Journal’s July 20 issue and annually published Book of Lists will feature a special section that will include the Fast 50 company rankings. An awards luncheon to honor 50 of Tampa Bay’s fastest-growing privately held companies will be held at the A La Carte Event Pavilion in Tampa on July 19.
