Columbus, Ohio — Zipline Logistics, a nationwide third-party logistics provider, has again been named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies. This year marks the 9th time the company has been named to the list.

“We’re thrilled to once again be recognized as a rapidly growing organization,” explains Zipline Logistics CEO, Walter Lynch. “It’s a reflection on the tangible value we bring to our clients as a specialized Logistics Solutions Provider. In a year where generalized 3PLs largely produced negative revenue growth and disruptors built market share on negative operating margins, Zipline was able to meet our revenue and volume growth goals while maintaining healthy and viable balance sheets. Our Solutions Providers are so proud of what we bring to the table for every client we serve.”

The achievement puts Zipline in an elite group of some of the most prominent companies in the world including Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia.

Companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2016 to 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2019. The minimum revenue required for 2016 is $100,000; the minimum for 2019 is $2 million.
