SwanLeap Named No. 1 Fastest Growing Company in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine

Monday, August 20, 2018

MADISON, WI, August 15, 2018 – Inc. magazine today revealed SwanLeap as the fastest-growing private company in America. Revolutionizing the Transportation Management Software industry with its Beyond TMS approach, SwanLeap is leveraging Artificial Intelligence across the supply chain to optimize transportation execution while helping companies turn freight into a profit center. The use of this new technology is allowing SwanLeap to deliver an annual average transportation savings of 26.7% to its customers.
Debuting on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list in 2017 at #55 with $99 million in revenue, SwanLeap has shown an unprecedented 75,660.8% revenue growth over the past three years catapulting the five year old software company to the number one spot. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, and Zillow gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. SwanLeap began with CEO Brad Hollister’s vision to create a solution to provide real-time visibility and supply chain control for manufacturers and ecommerce companies. In pursuit of that goal, one of the first things Hollister did was place a craigslist advertisement seeking a programmer. That move connected him to co-founder Jason Swanson who brought the wells of technical knowledge and experience needed to disrupt the antiquated shipping industry.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.” In the early days, Hollister kept a piece of paper taped up on a board in the basement of his house where they worked. On that paper he wrote the number of users they would need to become a billion-dollar company. And one by one, Hollister would mark down the number as new users were onboarded. “Although I envisioned this level of success from the beginning, it has been a hard road getting here. We’re doing something new, something very different,” said Hollister, “and a lot of the market is just starting to understand that.”
In an otherwise frustrating and archaic industry, SwanLeap has entered the ring with what Deloitte has identified as NextGen technology. Through their rapidly deployed, custom implementation of NextGen TMS and auditing services, SwanLeap is using AI and machine learning to automate many of the manual roles in a company’s supply chain. These efforts are eliminating errors, increasing efficiencies, and improving customer relationships for businesses across the country.
