We’ve recently celebrated a milestone here at FreightPros, and we wanted to share this news with our customers and readers because we’re pretty excited about it. For the second year in a row, we’ve been selected to the Inc 5000 list
(in case you missed the headline). Inc. is a prominent magazine
, founded in 1979, that creates content regarding privately-owned, growing business in America. For decades they have been a stalwart in business journalism for profiling a hugely important aspect of our economy: the American entrepreneur. For nearly their entire print run, they have released an annual list of the fastest growing companies in the country. The list profiles the growth of the fastest-growing 5000 privately-held companies in the United States, called the “Inc. 5000 List.”
They also honor the top 10% of these 5000 companies by releasing the “Inc. 500 List” each year. If you’ve been with us for a while, perhaps you’ll remember that this is our second year in a row on the list
. This year we ranked at #1040!!!
Out of all the private companies in the country, we’re growing faster than all but 1,039 of them (according to Inc.’s ranking system). Here at FreightPros, we’re extremely honored and excited to be a part of this year’s list. We spend a lot of time talking about buzzwords such as “company culture,”
and what it means to work here, but it’s a nice reminder that we’re a growing company as well. We’re successful at what we are doing. Sure, we make friends with our co-workers, play ping pong, and sometimes talk about soccer
, but our ultimate goal is and always has been to help our customers move their freight in the most efficient way possible.
Our inclusion on this list proves that we are doing a good job at our selected profession, no matter how stressful it can sometimes be, and we’re doing it our own FreightPros way.
Though it’s great for customers, it’s especially important for our team here at FreightPros to recognize all the hard work we’ve put in over the past year. By the way, we’re #20 when it comes to companies in the Austin-metro area!
We’re all about recognizing and participating in the Austin culture
, so to be recognized in a regional way is a treat. Alongside the likes of Mutual Mobile
, we’re part of the growth that is ubiquitous in Austin at the moment. We’re looking forward to another productive year at FreightPros; where we blend shipping and culture to create a freight-broker partner that you can rely on for your shipping needs (and hopefully some cool culture pieces too).
