Top 50 Global Transportation Providers
Revenue at the 50 largest transportation and logistics companies worldwide shrank 8.5 percent in 2015 from the year before to $753.8 billion. Only eight — UPS, FedEx, C.H. Robinson, Hapag-Lloyd, SF Express, Expeditors International, and J.B. Hunt — registered increased revenue.
Currency fluctuations were an important factor in the Top 50 revenue decline, as almost every other currency declined in value against the dollar in 2015, a lot of them by double-digits. Slower economic growth and the ensuing weak demand for trade and transportation services also played a big role.
This year’s list is the fifth annual ranking of the Top 50 Global Transportation Service Providers by SJ Consulting and The Journal of Commerce. The list ranks companies from five continents by revenue.
