On December 3, 2020, Onfleet was named to Inc.’s inaugural Best in Business list with a Silver medal in the Logistics and Transportation industry category. Inc. created the Best in Business Awards to honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive difference.
The list, which can also be found in the Winter issue of Inc. Magazine, recognizes small- and medium-size privately held American businesses that have had a superlative impact on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole in 2020.
Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, "It's been an incredibly challenging year for companies. Across industries, businesses have had to make brutally tough decisions and face unprecedented uncertainty. That's why we knew 2020 called for a new recognition program, something to complement our annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. For Best in Business, companies have prioritized tackling today’s problems to lead us to a better future, even if they’ve struggled to stay in the black."
Instead of relying on quantitative criteria linked to sales or funding, Inc.'s editors reviewed the companies' achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 30 different industries—health, software, retail, business services, and more—and in age- and revenue-based categories. The applicant pool was very competitive, with around 2,700 entries and an acceptance rate in the low single digits—a huge success for these honors in their inaugural year.
“Onfleet is honored by this recognition. This year has presented hurdles and opportunities for our customers. We are proud that we were able to adjust and scale to their demands, donate our software to those on the frontlines delivering PPE, Food Bank items, and meal kits, and continue to earn accolades from the drivers, dispatchers and delivery recipients who use our product,” noted Khaled Naim, Onfleet’s CEO and Co-founder.
