Palm Harbor, FL, October 16, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- After 18 years and millions of nationwide shipments processed, FreightCenter (www.FreightCenter.com) has been recognized once more as a leading business on the Gulf Coast of Florida.
A nationwide third-party logistics provider, FreightCenter ranks 206 out of 500 and 43 in the business-to-consumer services industry. The Gulf Coast 500, published by Business Observer magazine, ranks the largest companies by revenue and growth from nine Gulf Coast counties.
“This award proves that we remain a force that drives industry in our state,” says Matthew Brosious, Chief Executive Officer. “When my father and I started FreightCenter in 1998, we were looking to help people ship hard-to-ship items like furniture and auto parts. Now we’re in the business of handling logistics for large and medium-sized supply chains and retailers. The key to FreightCenter’s growth is that we’ve never stopped servicing both businesses and individual customers.”
Since 2013, the company has made key investments such as building a mobile-friendly version of its website www.FreightCenter.com that gives customers instant access to freight rates from vetted shipping companies. These companies or carriers specialize in nationwide and international less-than-truckload, truckload, air, rail, intermodal and ocean transportation. By providing information about their shipment online or by phone, FreightCenter customers have the ability to book shipping services, track shipments and complete required shipping paperwork.
