Fortune Magazine‘s list of the Fastest Growing Companies is littered with energy companies, pharmaceutical companies and start ups on the cutting edge of technology.
Then you hit No. 27.
A truck dealership based in New Braunfels, Texas – Rush Enterprises, Inc.
Fortune lists the company’s three-year-average revenue growth at 45 percent, profit growth of 107 percent and a total return of 23 percent.
Rush’s spot at 27 on the list puts them 11 places ahead of global technology giant Apple and 19 places ahead of Paccar.
Old Dominion Freight Line came in at 74 on Fortune‘s list, but clocked in at the No. 12 spot on CCJ‘s Top 250 fleet list.
Fortune ranked Universal Truckload at 80, while CCJ put the Warren, Mich.-based carrier at No. 28 on its list.
