Bolt Express Recognized at GPSNet Technologies Expedite Alliance Conference
Toledo, Ohio --- Bolt Express recently received the award for Carrier of the Year for Highest Revenue Growth in 2005 over 2004.
Bolt was recognized at the 3 rd Annual Expedite Alliance Conference held by GPSNet Technologies, Inc. in Las Vegas in January for their 42 percent growth in revenue last year. Ben Bauman, general manager of Bolt Express, says this accomplishment is a result of several things. “Not only did we add six sales representatives and one sales manager to our staff, but our truck count also went up by 32 percent during the past year.” He says “this has allowed us to expand our business tremendously.”
In addition to this award, Bolt Express was also named 5 th runner up for Company of the Year for On-Time Performance, and was a small company Honorable Mention. According to Stuart Sutton, president of GPSNet Technologies, “these companies don’t have many trucks, but still managed to gain the respect of the AlliancePro companies and received quite a few brokered loads during 2005.”
The Expedite Alliance is made up of 170 companies in the transportation industry, primarily of expedite carriers. Bauman refers to this as a “super alliance that ties carriers together and breaks down the walls of competition.” The majority of the carriers in this alliance are using GPS Technologies software.
Bolt Express provides a 24-hour, seven days a week, dock-to-dock, exclusive use transportation service for rush-critical shipments throughout the 48 states and Ontario , Canada .
