ICAT Logistics Inc. (ICAT), a leading agency-based freight forwarder in the U.S., announced Jan. 27 that it has continued to achieve significant growth and expansive business success over 2014.
In the last several months, ICAT experienced 28 percent average agency growth; 72 percent growth in international shipping and logistics; 19 percent in tradeshow freight; and 80 percent of ICAT’s offices saw year-over-year growth.
“We are thrilled to announce these recent growth achievements and milestones our company has achieved overall these past several months,” said Rick Campbell, president and CEO, ICAT. “2014 has been a hugely successful year for us and we look forward to continuing to build on this growth and expansion as we move into 2015.”
ICAT’s largest individual office growth to-date this year reached an explosive 162 percent, owing in large part to ‘ICAT Way,’ the industry-leading turnkey recruiting, training and development program to deliver critical support and tools to its agency partners in the areas of sales, marketing, accounting, etc. The program continues to gain accolades for its demonstrated ability to drive continued growth and success among ICAT’s increasing network of global agency partners.
Other factors driving ICAT’s continued, large-scale growth are the company’s recent expansions into new markets, with offices opened in 2014 in Los Angeles (LAX) and Nashville, Tenn. (BNA). Each of these most recent ICAT offices meets a strategic, emerging need in ICAT’s key vertical markets and has enabled the company’s network to expand to even greater heights.
The LAX office, comprising of 10 employees and led by Erik Joliff, is primarily focused, but not limited to, the retail and apparel industries. ICAT’s BNA office, representing Nashville, is led by Mark Holt and Jerry Patrick. The team opened their doors in October 2014 and will be moving into new space in 2015.
Going forward into 2015, ICAT plans to continue its focus to achieve a greater customer-centric service approach, along with expanding its outreach to its existing shipping customers.
