Cincinnati – Inc. Magazine released its sixth annual Inc. 500Ɩ5000, and Total Quality Logistics (TQL) is once again on this exclusive list. This is the eighth time in TQL’s 15 year history that it has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

“This list recognizes the accomplishments of America’s independent entrepreneurs.
