Inc. 5000 Honoree 2018

Pittsburgh, PA – Inc. Magazine has announced that Elite Transit Solutions (ELITE) has been named to its annual Inc. 5000 list for 2018 — an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is ELITE’s 2nd consecutive year being honored on the list.

ELITE’s growth has been built upon one core principle — exceptional customer service,” said Michael Johnson, founder and CEO. “Customer service is what paves the road to growth in nearly every business, in every industry. We are delighted to be named to the 2018 Inc. 5000 list as it reflects our commitment to setting the benchmark for service level and on-time delivery rates in the freight management industry,” he added.

The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to the company’s percentage of revenue growth over a three-year period.

Key to the ELITE’s rapid expansion in the past year has been the company’s continued investment in innovative technology for the freight management industry. The company had already automated over 80% of the tasks common to freight management — critical to eliminating human error and optimizing service levels.  In 2017, ELITE doubled-down on its commitment to technology with the acquisition of a software development company.

The freight management industry is experiencing its most rapid period of change in generations,” said Michael Johnson, CEO of ELITE. “New electronic data log legislation enacted in 2017, along with the growing shortage of freight carriers, means that tech-forward thinking companies will have a distinct advantage in the marketplace. In late 2018 ELITE will be launching a revolutionary transportation management system and mobile app that will allow us to respond to these challenges, optimizing outcomes for our customers — helping the industry to do more with less.”

ELITE’s growth has been 100% organic, the result of the company’s passionate commitment to customer service, as well as shrewd leadership and calculated investments.

We honor just one thing in the Inc. 5000: real achievement. 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 entrepreneurs know better than anyone,” said Eric Schurenberg, editor-in-chief, Inc.
