Unishippers of Laredo Makes the 2009 Inc. 5000 List

Huge distinction for top American franchise

America's largest provider of value-added shipping services has been named among the top franchises in the world

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 6, 2009 — Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC, the nation’s largest provider of value-added shipping services, announced today that Unishippers of Laredo has been named to the 2009 Inc. 5000 list for the third consecutive year. This list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. As an individually owned franchise, Unishippers of Laredo is distinct from
the dozens of franchising companies that are included in this year’s list, making this achievement
even more impressive.

“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” says Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan.

Unishippers combines the shipping volume of businesses served by 282 franchises across the country, and negotiates substantial discounts from its extensive national, regional and local carrier network, including UPS®, Estes® and Saia®. As a result, Unishippers franchisees are able to offer reliable shipping solutions and significant savings to small and medium sized businesses.

Since it opened for business in 1996, Unishippers of Laredo has helped hundreds of area businesses with a combination of impressive savings and local customer service.

“From day one, I knew it was critical to have a great rapport with the businesses we serve,” says owner Jonathan Fuller. “Our customer service is all local, and I hire only those people who demonstrate a commitment to my three qualities for success: professionalism, integrity, and proactivity.”

Fuller’s early growth exceeded his expectations, and allowed him to achieve his 10 year goals after just two years. In fact, the unlimited growth opportunity was one of the unique benefits that attracted Fuller to Unishippers when he was looking for franchise ownership options. “It’s taken hard work, dedication, and an investment of my time, but the opportunity with Unishippers is as large as you make it, and that’s not something you often find in franchising,” says Fuller.

According to Dan Lockwood, President of Unishippers, having an individual franchise recognized on the Inc. 5000 is proof that Unishippers is a special franchise concept that provides exceptional growth opportunities to franchisees.

“There are very few other franchise organizations that can point to an individual franchise success of this magnitude,” says Lockwood. It’s extremely gratifying for me to see, not only as President of Unishippers, but also as a franchise owner myself.”
