PHOENIX, AZ – November 3, 2017 – GlobalTranz Enterprises, Inc., a leading technology-driven freight management solution provider, today announced it was recognized by the Phoenix Business Journal and the 2017 Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) Awards on November 2, 2017. GlobalTranz was ranked the ninth Largest Private Company and one of the Fastest Growing Companies in Arizona, receiving ACE Awards for both achievements.

The event brings together business leaders from the top 25 fastest growing companies and the top 50 privately held companies within the state of Arizona among numerous business sectors, like transportation, construction, real estate, technology and health care.  The Fastest Growing Company and Top Privately Held Company award criteria were based on FYE 2016 revenue.

The goal of the ACE Awards is to develop an increasing sense of knowledge-sharing and community among private companies in Arizona. The largest private companies in Arizona generate revenues of over $15 billion per year. They employ over 40,000 employees in the state of Arizona and over 56,000 worldwide.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the Phoenix Business Journal ACE Awards and we’re proud to be part of the fast-growing technology and transportation sectors in Arizona,” said Bob Farrell, chairman and CEO of GlobalTranz. “Our commitment to market-leading technology and best-in-class logistics solutions offers a wealth of career opportunities for those wanting to live and work in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We look forward to our continued growth and remaining an active member of the Arizona business community.”
