ICAT Logistics, Inc. (ICAT), a leading agency-based freight forwarder in the U.S., announces today that it has continued to achieve significant growth and expansive business success over 2014.
In the last several months, ICAT has continued to rise to ever-greater heights of business success and achievement, culminating in significant growth figures, including:
- 28% average agency growth;
- 72% growth in international shipping and logistics;
- 19% in tradeshow freight; and
- 80% of ICAT’s offices saw year-over-year growth.
In addition, ICAT’s largest individual office growth to-date this year has reached an explosive 162%, owing in large part to the industry-leading turnkey recruiting, training, and development program to deliver critical support and tools to its agency partners in several areas, such as sales, marketing, and accounting, known as the ‘ICAT Way.’ This program continues to gain accolades for its demonstrated ability to drive continued growth and success among ICAT’s increasing network of global agency partners.
Other factors driving ICAT’s continued, large-scale growth are the company’s recent expansions into new markets, with offices opened in 2014 in Los Angeles, California (LAX) and Nashville, Tennessee (BNA). Each of these most recent ICAT offices meets a strategic, emerging need in ICAT’s key vertical markets and has enabled the company’s network to expand to even greater heights.
- The LAX office, led by Erik Joliff, is primarily focused, but not limited to, the retail and apparel industries. Comprising of 10 employees, the office is located at 3090 E. Via Mondo, Rancho Dominguez, CA 90221.
- ICAT’s BNA office is led by Mark Holt and Jerry Patrick. The team opened their doors in October and will be moving into new space in 2015. They are excited to represent ICAT in the Nashville market.
“We are thrilled to announce these recent growth achievements and milestones our company has achieved overall these past several months,” said ICAT President and CEO, Rick Campbell. “2014 has been a hugely successful year for us and we look forward to continuing to build on this growth and expansion as we move into 2015.”
Going forward into 2015, ICAT plans to continue its focus to achieve a greater customer-centric service approach, along with expanding its outreach to its existing shipping customers.
