Becker Logistics Ranks No. 1,596 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 257 Percent
Glendale Heights, IL, August 14, 2019 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Becker Logistics, LLC is No. 1,596 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Becker logistics was started 22 years ago by Jim Becker at his kitchen table; party of one. In the last 5 years the company has seen exceptional growth of over 1,000 percent. None better that the last 3 years however at 257% – the magic number that landed Becker on Inc. 5000’s list (spot 1,596). The exceptional growth has spurred the company to double its locations by opening 6 offices in 2019, bringing the total to 11, including an international location in Toronto Ontario, Canada.
Here is what Jim had to say about being named, “It has been amazing to lead such a great team with our 11 offices throughout North America. In 2014 we were ranked #4,600 and now we are #1,596; to see the advancement and success we have taken is only possible through hard work, belief and customer satisfaction based on a foundation of values over the years. I would like to congratulate our top competitors who also made the list and wish them the best on their journey. I am looking forward to our endeavors as we set our eyes to reach $1 billion in gross revenue sales in the next ten years.” Jim is also setting his sights on telling his story and journey into the man, father and leader he is today in the book, You Are a Genius. It is scheduled for release in October 2019.
Becker Logistics is committed to connecting companies large and small with a network of dependable carriers who will deliver freight on time and in the right condition regardless of its growth pace.

At Becker Logistics they simply stand for the best: the best service, the best prices, the best carriers and the best employees.

Becker Logistics is in great company as part of this honor. Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (the complete list can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
Becker logistics will continue to service their current and new customers with integrity and exceptional customer service. It is operating at a gross run rate of $100,000,000 and will take its combined knowledge, experience and drive to grow its business, expand its physical footprint across the US and Canada, hire an anticipated 90 employees in 2019 and create transformational success.
