MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 13, 2019 /CNW/ - Canadian Business and Maclean's today ranked GO Logistics Inc. No. 277 on the 30th Annual Growth 500, the definitive ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. Produced by Canada's premier business and current affairs media brands, Growth 500 winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business published with Maclean's magazine and online at www.CanadianBusiness.com and www.Growth500.ca.
GO Logistics Inc. made the 2019 Growth 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 304%. "The companies on the 2019 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today," says Beth Fraser, Growth 500 program manager.
"GO Logistics Inc. is honoured to be on the Growth 500 ranking," says CEO Anthony Whyte. "It reflects the vote of confidence our customers have given us – a testament to our commitment towards partnership and collaboration. We've built our business centered around the final mile of home delivery, a space where the big players are restrictive when it comes to package dimensions they cater to. That's where we come in. We work to understand their inventory, seamlessly moving packages from mid mile to final mile. Our processes encompass sortation, next day, and same day delivery services, trimming home delivery to within a few hours (in the GTA).
Shedding more light on the company's achievements, Whyte added, "We have the partnership of warehouse and cross-dock locations across Canada ensuring national coverage. In 2017, we collaborated with the country's biggest e-commerce player to launch their first third party Canadian sortation centre, consistently rating among their top performing North American sortation centres." added Whyte.
Whyte summarizes the company's value proposition as follows, "Being a smaller player compared to others in the home delivery space has opened a number of opportunities that would otherwise not have presented themselves. We remain committed to growing in stride with our customers, preparing them to face the new decade – bigger, better and more confident in their home delivery offering. The Growth 500 selection is a testament to the trust they have put in us."
