Inc. revealed today that Atlantic Logistics ranks as number 2,735 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Being named to the Inc. 5000 for the fifth time speaks volumes about our team,” said Atlantic Logistics CEO Rob Hooper. “We say it over and over again, ‘Live by the Golden Rule.’ Treating others the way we want to be treated is the lifeblood of our company. Our business is still a relationship business. One that’s built on trust,” he said. “We’re deeply blessed to have built a culture of caring and customer devotion while carefully automating to the supply chain as needed. Our customers still want to talk with a person and that’s what drives us to be the best we can be.”
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000, with the fast growth that requires, is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
