FreightCenter.com, a third-party freight and logistics company, has received national recognition by Inc. Magazine as well as local recognition due to their strong growth in revenue over the past year.
August 2010 – FreightCenter has been recognized as one of the top-growing private companies for the fourth year running in the annual Inc. 500|5000 list compiled by Inc. Magazine. FreightCenter is one of only a handful of companies to earn a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list for all 4 years since the magazine expanded its listings from 500 in 2007.
Each year, Inc. Magazine recognizes privately-owned companies in America that have demonstrated revenue growth over the three previous years, this years’ list measuring company expansion between 2006 and 2009. FreightCenter’s three- year growth earned a ranking of #4808 on the national list, as well as #96 in the logistics and transportation industry and #58 in the Tampa area where the company is based.
“Winning this achievement is really outstanding for our organization and we are extremely grateful to our customers and industry for being the driving force behind our success,” said Matt Brosious, CEO and founder of FreightCenter. “It demonstrates how providing unique & innovative solutions and listening to your customers’ needs can really take you to new heights in your business.”
To add to its national achievements, FreightCenter was also recently recognized by two local media publications for its success in the Tampa Bay area. The Tampa Bay Business Journal included FreightCenter in their annual Fast 50 list that annually ranks the fastest-growing companies in the entire Tampa Bay region based on a combination of revenue, profits, and internal growth. Another local business media leader, the Gulf Coast Business Review, added FreightCenter to its Gulf Coast 500 list of top companies based along the entire gulf region of Florida for the second year in a row.
“During a time in the economy when many companies are downsizing and cutting back on expenses, our continued success has allowed us to do quite the opposite and expand in workforce and technology ,” said Brosious. “We see even more positive growth and innovation in the years ahead.”
