Magnum Logistics Inc, Announced As Third Fastest Growing Company
Indianapolis, IN- Magnum Logistics, Inc, parent company of Magnum Express, Inc., was recently announced as the third fastest growing company in the Indianapolis area, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal. Founded in 1998, Magnum specializes in trucking, logistics consulting, transportation management, and warehousing. Soaring revenue – from $5.5 million in 2002 to $23.5 million in 2004 – has lead to this major accomplishment.
Founder and owner James Sharp attributes much of that growth to the company’s no-nonsense approach. Magnum will take on a client if it can help it save money, or it will turn the business away if its services are not needed. “Our goal is to maximize value, not to hit a home run,” states Sharp.
This same no-nonsense approach applies to the company’s fleet of trucks. According to Scot Sauer, director of fleet development, “We tell it like it is. We know that you cannot grow your fleet and retain quality people with false promises. As a result, you may not always get the answer you want to hear, but it will always be the truth.”
Another important factor to the company’s success is based on the ability to slowly grow the fleet to service this expanding customer base. “Our fuel program has been crucial to our recruiting and retention efforts,” said Sauer. “Not only do we lease on only the best and safest owner operators in the business, we have found that we need to take care of them with a solid fuel program. Our entire fleet is able to purchase fuel at our fuel stops for $1.289 per gallon with no strings attached.”
With this solid customer focus and driver friendly environment, it is easy to see why the company has experienced so much success. To find out more about Magnum Express, please contact the recruiting department at 1-877-262-4686 or log onto their web site at www.GoMagnum.com.
