CHICAGO — June 27, 2016 — Redwood Supply Chain Solutions (SCS), the transportation management and technology unit of Redwood Logistics, has been named #3 overall on this year’s Crain’s Chicago Business Fast Fifty list. This list represents Chicago’s fastest growing companies from 2010 through 2015. In that timeframe, Redwood SCS realized 8,215 percent growth.
Redwood SCS began in 2009 as 3PLogic and was the innovation of the company’s CIO, Eric Rempel. According to Rempel, growth came by offering shippers a suite of options. Typically, shippers that need help with their transportation and supply chains face the prospect of making significant investments in-house or are forced to outsource everything. Redwood SCS was able to offer options between those two extremes, building trust in the market and a robust client list at the same time.
“From the very beginning, we knew we were on to something; with hard-work and support from a dedicated team, we’ve managed to surpass expectations,” said Todd Berger, CEO, Redwood Logistics. “In 2016 and beyond, we look forward to continuing this growth story, as SCS is truly a cornerstone of the company’s strategically integrated solutions.”
On June 22, Crain’s recognized the 2016 Fast Fifty class during a sit-down breakfast featuring a panel discussion with select Fast Fifty company representatives and audience Q&A. The Redwood Logistics team attended along with Chicago’s business community and Fast Fifty alums.
