St. Louis, MO, June 30, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- For three years of increasing sales, branch openings and employment, Sunset Transportation, Inc., a third-party logistics (3PL) and freight payment provider, was recently recognized by two premier publications. The St. Louis Business Journal named Sunset as the “47th Fastest-Growing Private Company” while the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ranked the nationwide 3PL firm among the “Top Workplaces” for the second consecutive year.
“Sunset is dedicated to service and integrity in all our interactions with customers, staff, and vendors,” said Lindsey Graves, vice president of operations. “These honors by our hometown St. Louis publications—recognizing our growth and company culture—are confirmation that our team is living these values daily and serving our customers with excellence. We are grateful to our customers and the St. Louis business community for their support.”
"47th Fastest Growing Company" reports double digit increase in job creation and revenue.
Each year, the St. Louis Business Journal recognizes private, locally-owned businesses that have the most accelerated growth in the past three-year fiscal cycle. For the first time, Sunset Transportation earned this distinction, ranking in the top 50 companies and reporting a 35% increase in both revenue and personnel between 2013-2015.
Within that same timeframe, the national logistics leader also opened or expanded six branch offices across the country, including an expanded branch in Nashville in July 2016 and the new Sunset Financial Services office in St. Louis. In addition, the company hired 21 new employees in 2015 and has plans to hire 12 more in multiple locations this year.
In February, the St. Louis Business Journal also interviewed Vice President of Operations Lindsey Graves in a business feature on Sunset’s new branch offices and company expansion.
Ranked "Top Workplace" for employee engagement, leadership and industry growth
For the second consecutive year, Sunset was placed into the national standard for the logistics and transportation industry for 2016 Top Workplaces by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, along with other key businesses and organizations including Drury Hotels, Maritz, SSM Health, Edward Jones, St. Louis County Library and Nestle Purina.
The logistics provider ranked high in employee satisfaction, strong internal and external leadership and current and future growth. Top Workplaces are determined annually in 45 major U.S. cities based on confidential employee surveys conducted by the Workplace Dynamics firm.
