BlueGrace Logistics Honored in 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 and Inc. Hire Power List

Nation's Most Progressive Logistics, Transportation and Technology Recognized for Fast Growth and Contributions to the Economy through Job Growth

2013-01-04
RIVERVIEW, FL, January 04, 2013 (Press-News.org) BlueGrace Logistics announced today that it has been featured in both the 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 and Inc.'s inaugural Hire Power Awards list, which recognized the fastest-growing private companies in the United States and businesses that have created the most jobs in America the past three years, respectively.

In its first appearance on the Inc. 500 | 5000 list, BlueGrace Logistics garnered the top honor in its industry as the brand claimed the No. 1 spot among the Top 100 Logistics & Transportation Companies, and ranked No. 20 overall on the esteemed list. With a three-year percentage growth of nearly 7,400 percent, BlueGrace Logistics placed No. 4 on the list of Top 100 Florida Companies in the ranking.

Generating 95 jobs in the past three years and surpassing more than 63 million in revenue, BlueGrace Logistics was also ranked among the top-10 logistics and transportation companies honored on the Inc. Hire Power Awards list. Founded in 2007, this is the first year BlueGrace Logistics has been eligible to participate in the Inc. lists.

"We are growing at a rapid pace, and are proud to bring on strong employees into our company to not only help us grow as a brand, but to help rebuild the economy," said BlueGrace Logistics President and CEO, Bobby Harris. "It is an honor to be recognized by awards that show the strength, stability and growth of some of the nation's best companies. We continually strive to set ourselves apart from our competitors; these awards are a testament to the strength of our team and our dedication to provide the best and most innovative practices in the industry. We are confident we will only grow stronger in 2013."

The 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and start generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011.

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.

The inaugural Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which is proud to recognize American companies that have greatly increased its workforces. Inc.'s Hire Power Awards celebrates private companies on the forefront of American job creation, giving these businesses the recognition they deserve.
