The award-winning leader in North American freight transportation came in at No. 4117 on the magazine’s annual list of the top 5,000 fastest-growing companies. Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list are ranked according to revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. Each must be a U.S.-based, privately-held, for-profit, and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2020.
The privately held asset-owned logistics company touted the achievement on Tuesday, noting its 21.4 percent revenue growth over the last three years.
“We have experienced exponential growth, and fully expect it to continue for many, many years,” said Trailer Bridge CEO, Mitch Luciano. “I am incredibly thankful to work with such a diverse team that truly cares about our customers and their experiences with Trailer Bridge. It is the very thing that fuels our expansion along with their personal growth.”
A full-service logistics provider, Trailer Bridge provides ocean transport between the U.S. and the Caribbean with its fleet of ocean-going deck barges as well as over-the-road trucking throughout the U.S., intermodal, less-than-truckload, cross-border movements, and third-party logistics services providing a full supply chain solution for shippers around the globe. During its continued growth, Trailer Bridge’s service offerings have grown to include U.S. domestic freight movements, cross-border transportation solutions between the U.S., Mexico and Canada, a new International division expanding ocean carrier services to global markets, rapid growth for Puerto Rican and Dominican ocean service, and the expansion of its team by more than 68 percent.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
In a press release, Trailer Bridge highlighted steps it took to remain committed to its employees, drivers, and customers and carriers during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Trailer Bridge committed to no layoffs during the pandemic and also increased its number of logistics experts to help manage the increase in freight. The company also implemented an Upskilling initiative to enhance employees’ skills and career growth.
