Each year the Business Observer spends seven months researching companies on the Gulf Coast to rank the top 500 companies from Tampa to Naples by their gross revenues.
On this year’s list, which reflects 2019 fiscal year data, FreightCenter ranked No. 189 out of the top 500 Gulf Coast companies for their gross revenue.
“Every year we’re scouting for companies, new and old, and it’s always exciting to see who’s new to the list and how veterans of the list have changed over the past couple years,” says Kat Hughes, executive editor of the Business Observer. “Covering nine counties that each have thousands of companies, the Top 500 really has become a who’s who for leading firms in the region.”
“Being recognized by the Business Observer as a Top 500 company is a great accomplishment. What we’ve achieved was made possible by the hard work of all our employees and the great support of our customers,” said Matt Brosious, President of FreightCenter.
About the Top 500
The Top 500 is the most comprehensive list on the Gulf Coast by including companies in nine counties. The main list ranks the 500 largest companies by gross revenues for consistency and comparability.
Revenues are mostly self-reported by the companies, and do not include pass-through revenues for industries such as real estate, advertising agencies, or professional employer organizations.
In addition to revenues for 2018 and 2019, the list provides other information on each company, including the number of full-time employees, the year founded or incorporated, the top executive, line of business and of course, valuable contact information.
Two digital versions of the lists are available for purchase on the Business Observer’s website at BusinessObserverFL.com/top-500. These allow companies to sort, merge and manipulate the information as they wish.
