Transportation Insight Moves into Top 25 on NC’s Top 100 Private Companies

Hickory, North Carolina, October 2, 2012—Transportation Insight, a leading global third-party logistics provider, has once again improved its ranking on Business North Carolina Magazine’s list of Top 100 Private Companies in the state. In its October issue, Business North Carolina features Transportation Insight as a North Carolina business leader with an impressive, upward ranking of 23rd, up from 30th last year.

Grant Thornton compiles the annual survey by ranking businesses based on revenue from the most recent fiscal year. This prestigious list has been compiled since 1984. It is Transportation Insight’s eighth appearance on the list.

“It’s important to us at Transportation Insight to make this list because it demonstrates continuous growth as we move up the list year after year,” says Transportation Insight CEO Paul Thompson. “With a slow-growing economy, it’s tough to sustain and maintain any business. Our ability to consistently offer process improvements and customized supply chain solutions has helped our clients grow faster than the economy. We’re continuing to expand into new markets with innovative solutions to meet market demand.”

Transportation Insight’s positive trend of sustained business growth reflects its commitment to providing continuous improvement, best-in-class supply chain solutions and a significant competitive advantage for clients. It is also symbolic of the quality and commitment of Transportation Insight associates to execute with excellence. Transportation Insight helps its clients create long-term value and become market leaders through evaluation, innovation and process improvements. 

Transportation Insight has headquarters in Hickory, North Carolina and secondary corporate facilities in Bentonville, Arkansas and Charlotte, North Carolina. More than 40 sales and client support offices are located throughout North America.

As part of the list, Transportation Insight joins an elite group of North Carolina-based companies experiencing significant growth and continuous expansion such as Belk Inc., SAS Institute Inc. and J.T. Davenport & Sons Inc.

“What really makes Transportation Insight different is our people,” Thompson says. “Business models can be replicated, but our strength and core advantage is that our people execute better than the competition.”
