ACE Awards marks seventh consecutive year GlobalTranz has been shortlisted

PHOENIX (November 19, 2018)— (BUSINESS WIRE) GlobalTranz Enterprises, Inc., a leading technology-driven third-party logistics (3PL) solutions provider, today announced it was the recipient of two ACE awards and was ranked 6th Largest Private Company and 7th Fastest Growing Company by the Phoenix Business Journal at the 2018 Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) Awards on November 15, 2018. This honor marks the seventh consecutive year GlobalTranz has been recognized.

Following an exceptional third quarter, GlobalTranz continues to outpace many of its competitors in customer expansion, financial growth and advanced technology leadership. The company demonstrated its ongoing strategy to not only grow organically but also through acquisitions, most recently acquiring Chicago-based AFN Logistics.

Each year the Phoenix Business Journal compiles the Arizona Corporate Excellence Awards, which honor the largest private companies as well as the state’s fastest-growing private businesses. The rankings for the fastest-growing companies are based on a revenue score that includes a measurement of revenue growth over a two-year period. Now in its 24th year, the goal of the ACE Awards is to develop an increasing sense of knowledge sharing and community among private companies — as they honor the Top 50 and Fastest-Growing 25 private companies in Arizona.

Delivering consistent growth since its inception in 2003, GlobalTranz recently announced its 2018 Q3 earnings, reporting record revenues from organic and strategic growth. The company is on track to generate over $1.6 billion in revenue in 2018.

“We are honored to be recognized by the Phoenix Business Journal ACE Awards for our continuing commitment to the fast-growing technology and transportation sectors in Arizona,” said Bob Farrell, chairman and CEO of GlobalTranz. “GlobalTranz is helping define the future of freight and continues to create career opportunities throughout Arizona.
