Transportation Impact Named to Grant Thornton North Carolina Top 100® for Second Consecutive Time
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Emerald Isle, N.C., (October 4, 2017)—Transportation Impact has again been named to the 2017 Grant Thornton North Carolina 100® (NC100), which ranks the state’s largest private companies by revenue.
“We are honored to have been named to the 2017 Grant Thornton North Carolina 100® list for a second consecutive year,” said Keith Byrd, CEO. “Transportation Impact was born in North Carolina, and we are fully committed to this state, so it is especially rewarding to be recognized as one of the most innovative, top-performing businesses in this place we call home.”
The North Carolina-based supply chain spend management firm has grown tremendously since Burt and Byrd founded it in 2008. With nearly 800 customers, Transportation Impact specializes in helping high-volume small package and LTL freight shippers reduce the costs associated with those services.
To date, TI has managed over a billion dollars of logistics spend and has helped its customers save more than $250 million.
“We have come a long way in a short time,” said Co-founder Travis Burt. “Our goal when we started this business was to reach high and get there fast, and it is humbling to think of how many people — employees, partners, and our wonderful community — have helped us to reach that goal. With them, we will continue to move forward.”
Since 1984, the NC100 has ranked the state’s largest private companies by revenue in the most recent fiscal year, based on data provided by the participants.
The complete list was released in the October issue of Business North Carolina and can be viewed at GrantThornton.com/NC100.
