Axle Logistics named to Inc.5000 for second consecutive year

August 16, 2017

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – For the second year in a row, Knoxville-based Axle Logistics is excited to announce it has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This recognition comes again just five years after Jon Clay and Drew Johnson opened the doors to what they see as the future of third party logistics.


“This prestigious recognition provides validation for the hard work and efforts our team puts forth day in and day out,” Drew Johnson CEO of Axle Logistics shared.  “To earn such a high ranking on the list of America’s fastest growing private companies two years in a row proves to us that we’re doing something right and motivates us to continue to do better.”


The Inc. 500 list began back in 1982 and expanded to the Inc. 5000 in 2007. Since then, it has quickly become a hallmark of entrepreneurial success. To qualify for the award, companies must be privately-owned, based in the United States, independent (not a subsidiary or division of another company), and began earning revenue by March 31st, 2013. Additionally, the organization must have had revenue no less than $100,000 in 2013, revenue no less than $2,000,000 in 2016 as well as revenue in 2016 exceeding revenue in 2013.


“We’re pumped to be in triple digit rankings of the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row,” Jon Clay COO of Axle Logistics expressed. “Axle wouldn’t be able to achieve such tremendous growth without its dedicated team members that drive our winning culture.”


The lively and active company culture plays a large role in the attraction of new top talent to the downtown Knoxville, TN headquarters. In addition to landing in overall triple digits, Axle also secured the #13 spot for top companies in Tennessee on the 2017 Inc.5000 list. “We’re very proud of what we’ve been able to build and achieve together,” said Johnson.
