TQL a Ten-time Honoree on INC. Magazine's Annual List of America's Fastest Growing Private Companies
Total Quality Logistics (TQL), a third-party logistics provider headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, has reached a benchmark few others have reached -- this is the 10th time TQL has appeared on Inc. Magazine’s exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
Generating more than $1.6 billion in revenue in 2013, TQL is the only company in the logistics and transportation industry to reach the ten-time benchmark, and one of only 14 companies overall to be on the list ten times or more.
“This is a tremendous achievement. We want to extend our sincerest thanks to our employees and our carriers who work tirelessly every day to keep America moving, and to our customers for the trust they place in us,” said TQL Executive Vice President, Kerry Byrne. “Next week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week and the men and women in this industry deserve to be recognized.”
TQL was also featured in last year’s Inc. Hire Power Awards as one of America’s top job creators, creating 642 new jobs from January 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013. Today, the company employs more than 2,800 people in 27 offices and 16 states across the country.
The 33rd annual publishing of the Inc. 500|5000 list is on newsstands until November 30. To be eligible for the list, companies must have been in business for the last 5 years, generating revenue in each of those years.
