Nearly two dozen logistics firms have been named among North America’s fastest-growing companies. 

Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list, which was announced Wednesday, is a ranking of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech and energy tech companies in North America.

Four of the logistics companies that made the list are represented in the top 25: Takeoff Technologies, Fluid Truck, Emerge and Stord

Loadsmart, a Chicago-based logistics solutions provider that automates freight pricing, booking and shipping, also made the list at No. 214. Earlier this year, the company was named to the 2023 FreightTech 100, a selection of the most innovative companies in the freight technology space. 

Chattanooga, Tennessee-based FreightWaves also made the Deloitte list, its second time in as many years.

In order to be eligible for Technology Fast 500 recognition, companies must own proprietary intellectual property or technology that is sold to customers in products that contribute to a majority of their operating revenues, according to Deloitte. Companies must have base-year operating revenues of at least $50,000 and current-year operating revenues of at least $5 million. 

Additionally, companies must be in business for a minimum of four years and be headquartered within North America.
