HICKORY, N.C. and ATLANTA — Transportation Insight Holding Company today announced its inclusion among North America’s top 10 largest logistics companies, according to Transport Topics, a news leader in freight transportation and logistics. The parent company of Transportation Insight LLC and Nolan Transportation Group (NTG), Transportation Insight Holding Company ranks No. 8 on the 2021 Top 50 Logistics Companies list.

“Our company is laser-focused on strategic growth and reinvesting in our business.

That will allow us to continue elevating the performance of our customers’ supply chains.”

Gryphon Investors, a San Francisco-based middle-market private equity firm, purchased the majority stake in Transportation Insight LLC in 2018. Gryphon acquired the majority stake in Nolan Transportation Group in 2019. As the companies have integrated, a key growth-driver is their unique position to support dynamic spot shipments or complete managed transportation solutions across truckload, less-than-truckload and small parcel networks.
