KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Knoxville-based Axle Logistics, a third-party advanced transportation logistics company, announced today that it has been named to the 2016 Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. Axle Logistics was co-founded in 2012 by University of Tennessee graduates Jon Clay and Drew Johnson and now finds itself ranked #693 on this year’s prestigious list.
Companies on the Inc.5000 list are ranked according to the percentage growth of their annual revenue over a three-year period. Additionally, they must be U.S.-based, privately held, independent, and for-profit in order to qualify for the listing.
“We’re honored to be recognized alongside some of the country’s most innovative and fastest growing companies,” said co-founder Jon Clay. “This achievement is a validation of our company’s commitment to developing strong, personal relationships with our customers, while being fully dedicated to meeting their needs on a daily basis.”
Following a recent expansion of its headquarters, the company expects the growth to continue with plans of further expansion in Knoxville along with adding a second location outside of Knoxville in the future.
“There is no question the key to our rapid growth has been and will continue to be our people,” said Drew Johnson, co-founder of Axle Logistics. “All that we have achieved can be attributed to our entire team, which is the foundation of our success. Their continued commitment to providing high-level service and solutions to our customers has been the driving force behind our year-over-year growth.”
As the transportation industry continues to evolve, Johnson believes that Axle is perfectly positioned for the future. “Because of our forward-thinking, team-oriented culture and the uniqueness of our approach to managing logistics, we expect to sustain this healthy growth pattern as demand continues to grow for innovative third-party logistics providers,” said Johnson.
