Prestigious award honor Atlanta’s 50 Fastest-Growing Private Companies

ATLANTA, GA – APRIL 27, 2012 — American Global Logistics was named a winner of the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 16th Annual Pacesetter Awards honoring Atlanta’s 50 Fastest-Growing Private Companies. With revenue growth of nearly 316% between 2009 and 2011, AGL won the prestigious award for the second straight year — earning the 8th spot on the region’s leading business publication’s exclusive ranking.

The vision for American Global Logistics started with the desire to form and employee-owned company that allowed employees to take ownership of their roles and provide a great incentive to make the right choices for the company. Part of the company’s business strategy involved giving each client one point of contact during the entire logistics process. This foundation helped AGL go from $36 million in revenue in 2008 to over $150 million in 2011.

“AGL has assembled and all-star team, made up of top customer service professionals, whom we’ve worked with throughout the past 15 years. This has allowed AGL to grow at a very fast pace, primarily through referrals, while being able to maintain our service level,” said Chad Rosenberg, CEO.

AGL provides a range of expertise for clients, from ocean and air inbound and outbound logistics to warehouse and distribution and supply chain management.

Responsible for documentation and information management and deployment, AGL handles shipments that vary from less than container loads to full container loads as well as overweight and oversize cargo.

The company credits its growth over the past three years to its service model; which provides immediate and effective responsiveness to the client. Another major growth factor is the dedication of AGL’s employees, which helped the company maintain customers service throughout expansion.

“The biggest challenge with growing quickly in a service-based business is outgrowing your customer service, “ Rosenberg said. “ We are trying to maintain the fine line between accelerated growth, but not at the detriment of our high service level.”

Rosenberg expects AGL to continue growing at 20 percent to 30 percent over the next five years.

“We plan on partnering with one high-volume customer per quarter to control our growth and maintain our focus on customer service,” he said.
