LYNC Logistics Named To America's Fastest-Growing Companies List

Friday, August 16, 2019

Inc. magazine on Friday revealed that LYNC Logistics is No. 366 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“LYNC is thrilled to be ranked as the highest logistic company in Chattanooga on the Inc. 500 list for 2019," said LYNC Logistics CEO and President Cindy Lee. "We were on the list last year at #415 for 2018 and #366 for 2019. Our continued growth is a testament that our philosophy of 'No Brokers Just Fixers' works. It goes without saying that our employees are our best asset, but everyone here would say that our world famous Chief Happiness Officer (who happens to be a golden retriever), LeBron, sets the tone for the company. He bounds into the office every day with a can-do attitude and encourages everyone to do better and be better. We are looking forward to continued growth and further success into 2020.” 

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands Tuesday) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved a three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 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 companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.” 

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held Oct. 10-12 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Az.
