COLUMBUS, OHIO— For the 7th consecutive year, Zipline Logistics has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies. As a 7th time honoree, Zipline Logistics is now part of a select group of companies called the ‘Honor Roll.’ Fewer than a tenth of Inc. 5000 honorees ever achieve this milestone.
“Seeing continued growth year over year is an accomplishment we don’t take for granted,” explains Zipline Logistics CEO, Walter Lynch. “Our team is dedicated to our business mission of improving the lives of transportation professionals. This focus has driven us to develop new solutions and service offerings and enabled us to continually deliver on customer demands, even in a volatile and highly competitive logistics market.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
