Salt Lake City, Utah, August 25, 2016—Western Peaks Logistics, the premier same-day/next-day and last-mile delivery and logistics provider serving the western United States, ranked NO. 1800 on Inc. Magazine’s 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
Western Peaks Logistics achieved this distinction for its impressive 207 percent growth in revenue over the past three years (2012–2015) while operating as Rev It Logistics and Kangaroo Express. The two companies joined forces in 2016 to become Western Peak Logistics.
On their own, Rev It Logistics and Kangaroo Express were leaders in their respective markets,primarily Utah and Colorado. By combining forces into Western Peaks Logistics, the companies were able to expand their footprint and offer a regional solution for national shippers, reaching areas of the west known to be geographically isolated.
“WPL’s growth plan is to expand and provide last-mile and same-day/next-day delivery and logistics solutions in the areas that are adjacent to our current service area in the Intermountain West,” said Tyler Thatcher, CEO. “We know what lies between two points on a map in this area, perhaps the most challenging terrain in the United States. We are experts in navigating the expansive western terrain and often unpredictable weather conditions. We will grow to provide cross-dock facilities in areas where our current customers have delivery needs that are underserved.”
To accommodate the growth of the business, Western Peaks Logistics will be moving its Salt Lake City dock this fall to a new facility that will more than triple the company’s existing warehouse space.
