Knoxville, Tennessee, February 28, 2023 Inc. magazine today revealed that Axle Logistics is No. 51 on its third annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Southeast list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Southeast private companies, based in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Southeast economy’s most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses.

“It is an honor to be included on this prestigious list for the second year in a row,” shared Shawn McLeod, President. “We are appreciative of our clients and carrier partners’ continued partnership along with our team’s execution of industry-leading service. It is truly our people that continuously take Axle to new heights.”

The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Southeast region. Between 2019 and 2021, these private companies had an average growth rate of 673 percent and, in 2021 alone, they added 25,844 jobs and nearly $7 billion to the Southeast region’s economy. Companies based in the Miami, Florida, Fairhope, Alabama and Covington, Louisiana areas had the highest growth rate overall.

“The success we have experienced is driven each day by our team’s commitment to Axle’s clients and carriers. We are so fortunate to have the most dedicated group of individuals who are focused on delivering exceptional service while becoming leaders throughout our community and region,” states Ali Fraley, Vice President of Learning and Development.
