Inc. magazine on Wednesday revealed that Trident Transport is No. 609 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, a ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a look at the most successful companies within the independent small businesses sector.
For the third year in a row, Trident Transport has ranked among the top 5,000 companies in the nation with a three-year revenue growth of 768.84 percent.
“It’s impressive to see any company make the Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row,” said Heath Haley, president of Trident Transport. “We continuously see success within our company because each and every one of our employees from Chattanooga to Minneapolis to Tampa dedicate daily hard work, passion, and belief in Trident’s mission.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved a three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
“We set out to be one of the leading logistics providers and one of the best places to work in nation, and we’ve done just that,” said Mark Harrell, chief operating officer at Trident Transport. “We will continue to do what we do best and make the run for four years in a row in 2021.”
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. Editor-in-Chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
Since the release of the 2019 Inc. 5000 list, Trident Transport has flourished their two additional branches in Tampa and Minneapolis, been recognized as a Best Place to Work in Chattanooga and was a finalist for Small Business of the Year in Chattanooga.
