NILES, IL - August 2, 2016 - AFN Logistics, which serves the needs of major manufacturers, top-20 retailers and best-in-class carriers in North America, today announced notable growth in both revenues and staff, including a series of strategic executive hires to continue to drive the expansion.
This comes on the heels of AFN's July 20 announcement that it acquired HA Advantage, the Transportation Management System (TMS) and Less than Truckload (LTL) division of HA Logistics, Inc. In addition to absorbing HA Advantage's proprietary TMS - a scalable, web-based, mobile-optimized solution that enables smarter, faster transportation decisions - several HA Advantage employees joined the AFN team, as well. The addition of new technology and team members will enhance AFN's existing LTL service offering, which is already a core capability for the company.
AFN has grown to more than 200 full time team members in its suburban Chicago headquarters with nearly 15% increase in growth year-over-year. The company also announced a major expansion of its summer internship program from seven individuals last year to 23 this year, continuing a strong tradition of intern hiring and advancement.
AFN has proven to be highly desirable to work for - CEO, Ryan Daube, surprised fifteen non-executive team members with a private jet and tickets to Chicago Blackhawks game seven versus the St. Louis Blues in late-April, landing AFN coverage on WGN-TV and in the Chicago Tribune, as well as nods from NBC Chicago and ESPN Radio. Also of note are the state-of-the-art video and sound system in the office and the Friday afternoon beverage cart to foster camaraderie and reward team members for the week's hard work.
"Showing appreciation for our team is of critical importance to me and the entire executive team, and we pay great attention to ensuring people love coming to work every day," said Daube. "We're an incredibly integrated office that focuses on achieving success together. Whether you're part of the c-suite or a summer intern, everyone at AFN has a voice and is empowered to make a difference here."
The company has also seen double-digit revenue growth over the last three years. This has been driven by numerous new client wins, as well as notable organic growth with existing clients. In fact, AFN was named 2015 "Partner of the Year" by Ocean Spray, a long-time partner, in recognition of its high-touch service and superior performance.
