MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- In the course of one of the worst economies since the Great Depression, one Memphis based business is having one of its most triumphant years ever. Pathmark Transportation, a leading provider of transportation solutions, today announced that the company was named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list, a compendium of the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing companies in America.
Pathmark credits this accelerated growth from launching its agent program. Since the launch of this program, Pathmark has added 13 offices, and expects to have 40 open by years end. These agents operate their own third party logistics companies, offering their customers a single source solution for all of their freight needs, while using the most technologically advanced TMS program available. Their customers are able to go www.pathmarktrans.com to receive instant quotes, book their shipments, and track them while Pathmark handles all of the back office work such as invoicing, vendor setup, and carrier negations. Pathmark provides all of this with no fees to the agent, which gives them an advantage over their competitors.
"We have given people the opportunity to start their own logistics company without the worry of large cash outlays and dealing with compliance issues," says Wesley Kraker, Pathmark President. "We are providing our agents with the technology, reputation and proven system that took Pathmark 27 years to develop."
