For the 5th Consecutive Year, PLP Logistics Appears on Inc. 5000 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 109 Percent
NEW YORK, September 16, 2020 – PLP Logistics is honored to be listed at No. 3440 on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
This year’s appearance elevates PLP to Inc’s Honor Roll; a title only 3% of honorees obtain for the benchmark of being ranked 5 years in a row. PLP appears in the Top 200 for both the State of Georgia and Atlanta Metropolitan Area rankings. Altogether, Atlanta-based recipients account for $7.2B in total revenue, 46,187 jobs added and 131 repeat honorees with an average growth rate of 149%.
“We’re ecstatic to appear on the illustrious Inc. 5000 ranking for the 5th year in a row, ranked alongside some of our most honored and distinguished peers,” says Doug Russ, Managing Partner of PLP Logistics. “We have been committed to being examples of integrity and hard word in our decision-making and execution as an organization. Year after year we’re fortunate to work in a thriving industry and alongside a wonderful team, all of whom give their best effort every day to exceed customer expectations and provide the highest quality of service.”
– Doug Russ, Managing Partner
Russ and fellow Managing Partner Josh Harshman launched PLP Logistics in 2011, experiencing continuous growth due to their unwavering practice of developing meaningful, in-depth customer relationships. PLP cultivates a passionate client base, diligently learning its clients’ ins and outs and bringing best practices to shipping customers.
Most recently, PLP is growing the business, adding service offerings including freight bill audit, a uniquely effective carrier RFP process, reporting and technology via their web-based transportation system (TMS) and offering a locked in price point over the lifetime of partnerships.
