Transportation Insight Marks 15th Anniversary Accelerating toward Vision 20/20 Growth Goals
HICKORY, NC (July 2, 2015) – Globally-recognized Enterprise Logistics Provider Transportation Insight concluded an historic week by realizing several milestones on its way to achieving goals set forth in its Vision 20/20 strategic growth plan. In addition to celebrating 15 years in business, the 3PL took significant strides toward its goal of becoming a multi-billion dollar global Enterprise Logistics powerhouse: revenue surpassed $1 billion for the first time in company history; Founder and Chairman Paul Thompson was named an award recipient in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2015 Southeast Program; and the company gave associates a first look at its new downtown Hickory Corporate Campus, a showplace for lifestyle business and revitalization.
“This is the most significant time that we’ve ever seen in the history of our company, and it’s all happening because of you,” Thompson said Saturday to Transportation Insight associates attending a Transportation Insight event to present the company’s new corporate headquarters. “This beautiful campus is the result of your tireless work and dedication to making Transportation Insight the company it is today.”
As an integral element to Transportation Insight’s Vision 20/20 strategic growth plan, the Transportation Insight Corporate Campus will encompass 11 acres with 70,000 square feet of office space and 15,000 square feet of indoor exercise/athletic facilities. While the centerpiece of the campus is the fully restored Lyerly Mill, a 1930s era full-fashioned hosiery mill, the complex will also feature athletic fields, outdoor basketball courts, significant green space and a full service cafeteria with a chef specializing in healthy cuisine. The company will conduct a formal, public grand opening of the campus at a later date.
“Under Paul’s leadership, our company has developed a deep bench with a passion for seeing our clients and our company succeed. It is an honor to be a part of a group that is unmatched in our industry in terms of its expertise, vision, innovation and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure complete client satisfaction,” says Chris Baltz, President and CEO of Transportation Insight. “It is so exciting to reflect back on how an idea and a dream 15 years ago have been realized, as we’ve become a global logistics leader delivering best-in-class services to clients in all transportation modes. Our company remains laser-focused on solving clients’ supply chain challenges today and positioning them for growth and competitive advantage for today and tomorrow.”

While Thompson recently received the award for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2015 Southeast Program in the Services category, he was quick to give credit to the Transportation Insight team. “No entrepreneur wins an award because of what we do as individuals, but because of the team of people working with us to accomplish goals far beyond even what we as entrepreneurs thought possible. That is absolutely the case at Transportation Insight,” said Thompson. “I didn’t win this award – our associates did. We are the leading services company in the Southeast because of our people. They have worked tirelessly every day to exceed client expectations and as a result, we have become the North American leader in value-based Enterprise Logistics.”
