US outsourced delivery platform Roadie has been recognised on the annual Inc 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies, ranking 203rd.
Roadie has seen revenue growth of 2,157% in the last three years, boosted in a large part by the pandemic. This is the first time the firm has joined a prestigious industry list. It now has 200,000 drivers and riders and reaches 90% of US households at more than 20,000 zip codes.
The firm has established strong, long-term relationships with major retailers including The Home Depot, Walmart and Best Buy, and also works with a number of small businesses around the USA. At the same time it still delivers mishandled baggage to airline customers of Delta and Southwest.
“For a seven-year-old startup, landing on the Inc. 5000 list — and inside the top 250 our first time, to boot — is an incredible win,” said Roadie founder and CEO Marc Gorlin in a company press release. “I’m thrilled, but can’t say I’m surprised. The Roadie team can do anything.”
“When it comes to consumers’ preference for home delivery, COVID finished what Amazon started,” Gorlin adds. He also explains that customers want their stuff right at their doorsteps when they need it. Noting that the holiday season is coming once again and that this upcoming peak season would “blow old records out of the water,” Roadie has positioned itself to keep building and providing for its customers to make the most out of the retail market.
