JOLIET, Ill., January 21, 2022 (Newswire.com) - GP Transco, a growing over-the-road trucking and logistics company, received recognition on the first-ever FreightWaves Ratings Top 500 Largest For-Hire Carriers List ranking at #149.
The 2022 FreightWaves Top 500 For-Hire Carrier list ranks companies on the basis of tractor count. Data was compiled largely from publicly available databases and responses from company representatives. For the purposes of the inaugural ranking, "for-hire" includes companies that operate in various trucking modes. As an example, there is no distinction in the rankings between a flatbed and LTL carrier.
In addition to supplying the industry with more context, this publication also serves as a thank you to all the people in transportation that kept the country functioning over the last two years.
"COVID-19 has highlighted the massive role carriers play in our economy — delivering critical goods and supplies throughout the pandemic," said Craig Fuller, FreightWaves CEO and founder. "This list honors the companies and professionals that helped keep the economy rolling during some of the most challenging conditions in decades."
GP Transco's professional acknowledgments and awards continue to widen with recognition on some of the most acclaimed and prestigious industry listings which include five-times on the Crain's Fast 50, a #1 company on the Truck Drivers Salary Top-10 list, Smart-Trucking's Best Company to Work for in 2020 and 2021, a five-time Inc. 5000 recipient, Transport Topic's Top Truckload/Dedicated Carrier listing, Chicago Tribune's Top Workplaces, and now FreightWaves Ratings Top 500 Largest For-Hire Carriers List.
