Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – Inc. 5000

For the fifth consecutive year, Inc. Magazine has included American Global Logistics (AGL) on its annual Inc. 500/5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. AGL is one of the leading International Freight Forwarders in the U.S., renowned for excellent customer service, cloud-based trade management technology and flexible rate options. Led by a team of the top ranked executives in the industry, AGL supports its customers’ logistics needs anytime, anywhere in the world.

Inc. 5000, 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.

Started in 1982, this prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success.

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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 (http://www.inc.com/inc5000) .

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts”, says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc.5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails”.

Methodology

The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2015. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2012 is 1000,000; the minimum for 2015 is $2 million.
