This is a huge honor for RPM and we are absolutely thrilled to make this coveted Top 50 list. Over the past few years, we have taken large strides to focus our efforts on expanding our freight services. Part of our strategic effort was hiring proven leaders with the experience and knowledge needed to move freight in a very competitive environment. In addition to hiring the right people, we partnered with more carriers, allowing us to build our expansive network to include 20,000+ carriers.
One of the key takeaways for RPM in 2016, 2017, and 2018 was the rapid growth witnessed in the retail and e-commerce markets. According to the American Trucking Association, in 2018, trucks moved 11.49 billion tons of freight, resulting in 71.4% of the nation’s tonnage freight. This was reaffirmed by ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello when he stated that “2018 was a year of dynamic growth for the trucking industry.”
