Legion Logistics reported growth of nearly 2,000% from 2010 to 2012, topping 27 other privately owned companies in a tri-state area, according to a news release.

The firm specializes in full truckload, less-than-truckload, government freight, hazardous materials and produce.
It also is committed to hiring service-disabled veterans and donates $1 for each load to the Wounded Warrior Project, according to the article.
