MADISON, Wisconsin (Nov. 15, 2018)—SwanLeap, a leading end-to-end transportation technology provider for logistics managers and supply chain decision-makers, today announced its No. 1 ranking on Deloitte’s 2018 North America Technology Fast 500 list with a staggering 77,260 percent growth.
The list recognizes the fastest-growing North American companies in technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech sectors based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2014 to 2017.
“It is both humbling and validating for SwanLeap to be listed as the No. 1 fastest-growing company on the Deloitte Fast 500,” said Brad Hollister, CEO and co-founder of SwanLeap. “Our team has worked relentlessly to deliver unprecedented clarity and control to a fragmented shipping market through technology powered by artificial intelligence, curating cost-effective and personalized supply chain recommendations in real time. We are grateful to our employees and customers for making this achievement possible.”
SwanLeap was also recognized as the sector leader in the software category, which continues to dominate the overall list. Software companies delivered the highest growth rates for the 23rd year in a row, representing 64 percent of the entire list and six of the top 10 winners overall.
“Software, which accounts for nearly two of every three companies on the list, continues to produce some of the most exciting technologies of the 21st century, including innovations in artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and robotics,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications in Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “This year’s ranking demonstrates what is likely a national phenomenon, where many companies from all parts of America are transforming the way we do business by combining breakthrough research and development, entrepreneurship and rapid growth.”
