Unishippers Makes Prestigious Inc. 5000 List

Leading Logistics Franchisor Gains Further Recognition as a Top Private Business in America

August 30, 2013 // Franchising.com // Salt Lake City, UT – Hot off the heels of their recent Inbound Logistics "3PLs’ to Watch" ranking, Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC, was listed as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States in the 2013 issue of Inc. magazine’s Annual "Inc. 500 | 5000" list. Experiencing a 39 percent increase in revenue over the past three years and ranking #4,856, Unishippers continues to establish itself as a leader in the third party logistics market.

Inc. magazine’s Top 5000 list profiles businesses that have proven their strategies to be successful in leading to increased growth, revenue and reputation, as well as businesses that have become trendsetters in their respective industries. Only the very best private, employee-based firms are awarded the distinction of being recognized within the Inc. 500 | 5000, the gold standard of entrepreneurial success.

"Being recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America is such an incredible honor and is a direct result of all the hard work and dedication that our franchise owners allocate towards their businesses," said Kevin Lathrop, President of Unishippers. "Unishippers continues to provide expert knowledge and service while helping customers across the nation save time, trouble and money on all of their shipping needs."

The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2012. The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.

"Not all of the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy," says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
