SALT LAKE CITY, November 9, 2017—Western Peaks Logistics (WPL), the premier same-day/next-day and last-mile delivery and logistics provider serving the western United States, recently received national recognition and two local distinctions for its record-breaking growth in 2016.
Nationally, WPL ranked No. 1509 on Inc. Magazine’s 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious listing of the country’s fastest-growing private companies.
WPL achieved this ranking for its impressive 269 percent growth in revenue over the past three years (2013–2016) while operating as Rev It Logistics and Kangaroo Express. The two companies joined forces in 2016 to become Western Peaks Logistics.
Based in Salt Lake City, WPL was also honored by Utah Business Magazine as one of its Fast 50, the 50 fastest-growing companies in the state of Utah. WPL ranked No. 36. In addition, WPL was recognized by the Mountain West Capital Network (MWCN) as one of the 100 fastest-growing companies in Utah, with a rank of No. 49 on the Utah 100 list.
“WPL continues to grow at a rapid pace,” said Tyler Thatcher, CEO of WPL. “We have expanded our coverage area of the western United States and now have full-service cross-dock facilities in Salt Lake City, Denver, Grand Junction, Durango, Albuquerque, and Casper, Wyoming, which are connected by company-run line-haul operations. We also continue to enhance our services and technology. This year we added PTC Air Freight as a WPL company, which will further facilitate our company’s growth.”
WPL’s growth plan is to continue to add cross-dock facilities and expand its regional footprint in areas that are adjacent to its current service area in the Intermountain West, with a particular focus on areas where current customers have delivery needs that are underserved.
