Nolan Transportation Group (NTG) Ranks on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List for 7th Consecutive Year


NTG is recognized on the Inc. 5000 list as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies

ATLANTA (August 18, 2021) – Nolan Transportation Group (NTG) announced it has been recognized for the seventh consecutive year on the notable Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies. NTG ranks #2,702 on the 2021 list, recording a 3-year growth of 150%.

The list represents a unique look at the most successful and fastest growing private companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“I am incredibly proud of our team for working diligently over this past year and beyond to provide our customers and partners with solutions that not only meet their expectations, but exceed them,” states Geoff Kelley, President of NTG. “While the logistics industry has experienced unprecedented challenges, we look forward to seeing what the next year will bring for NTG as we continue to strategically invest in our growth and development as a hybrid-digital 3PL provider.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
