A logistics company headquartered in Grand Rapids recently ranked within the top 100 freight brokerage firms in 2022.
Transport Topics, a news source for logistics and trucking, in April published its rankings of top firms based on gross revenue. Venture Connect, the Grand Rapids-based entity of Venture, placed 79 on the list.
At the time of publication, Venture Connect had $160 million in gross revenue. The firm is located at 665 Seward Ave. NW and is the only one based in West Michigan to have made the list.
TJ Lehnertz, vice president at Venture Connect, said this accomplishment reflects the hard work and dedication of the team.
“People are the No. 1 asset of the company,” Lehnertz said. “Our people care deeply about the success of our customers and carriers, as well as one another.”
Venture Connect has offices in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Fort Collins, Colorado. Looking ahead, Lehnertz said he anticipates the company to expand with new locations in other states.
“We’re definitely on an aggressive growth strategy, both from a customer growth and carrier growth perspective,” he said.
Venture Connect offers dry van truckload, less-than-truckload shipping, rail intermodal, air/expedited, and flatbed and heavy haul services.
