Transportation firm founded by 24-year-old soars to $80 million in annual revenue
GlobalTranz, a Phoenix-based logistics management firm which specializes in carrier, supply chain and warehouse management has seen tremendous growth since its inception; the company announced expansion plans that will almost double its Arizona workforce with some 35 new positions at its Phoenix headquarters and more than 75 positions in Prescott, where the company’s customer service call center is located. These new positions include call center management, customer service, sales, accounting and freight brokerage with average starting salaries from $50-75,000 per year. GlobalTranz is also hiring at its regional offices in Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Founded in 2003 by Phoenix native Andrew Leto, who was just 24 years-old and unemployed after serving in the U.S. Navy, GlobalTranz quickly established itself as a first-class service provider in the transportation industry. The company developed state-of-the-art technology (CarrierRate.com) that simplifies the freight management process. In spite of recent economic challenges facing many Valley businesses, GlobalTranz has seen significant growth – with revenue more than doubling from 2008-2009.
Company executives anticipate this year to generate more than $80 million in annual revenue. GlobalTranz is one of the Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies, landing at #175 of the top 500 in the nation.
Leto, who serves as GlobalTranz Chief Executive Officer, attributes the company’s success to self-funded growth and a unique business model. “We are a profitable company because our business model is based on empowering people with innovative technology and creating mutually beneficial solutions for our partners, agents and customers,” he said. “We have always invested earnings back into the organization and managed our growth with care. I am beyond thrilled that our organization can tap into the strong labor pool by providing good-paying jobs in the community, both here in Arizona and across the country.”
