Inc. magazine revealed that Trident Transport is No. 896 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, a ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
For the fourth year in a row, Trident Transport has ranked among the top 5,000 companies in the nation with a three-year revenue growth of 544 percent.
“We’re grateful to have such an amazing team of employees,” said Heath Haley, CEO of Trident Transport.
“Our team has shown such resilience and continues to work incredibly hard, especially through everything that’s happened this past year. We were fortunate to not have to furlough any of our employees during the pandemic, and that is truly a result of our team’s dedication to this company.”
Officials said, “Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2021 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth at a median rate of 167 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $248 billion in 2020, accounting for over 2 million jobs over the past three years.”
“We’re proud to share this with our employees,” said Mark Harrell, COO of Trident Transport. “This shows how our employees’ hard work pays off. We will continue to strive for growth, to strive to be the best place to work, and to strive to make it on the list next year for the fifth year in a row.”
Since Trident’s first appearance on the Inc. 5000 list, the company has grown their two additional branches in St. Petersburg and Otsego, been recognized as a Best Place to Work in Chattanooga for two years in a row and is a finalist for the 2021 Small Business of the Year in Chattanooga.
