ROMULUS, Mich., August 20, 2009 — Romulus, Mich.-based United Road, one of the largest vehicle logistics providers in the United States, recently earned a spot on Inc. magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America. United Road CEO Michael Wysocki made the announcement.
The Inc. 5,000 is an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list and recognizes privately held firms that have demonstrated substantial growth over the past three years. As a whole, these businesses are the staples of U.S. commerce and cast a promising light on the future of the economy.

Answering the needs of vehicle enthusiasts and snowbirds alike, United Road has grown its variety of customizable single- and multi-unit transport options that best suit both individual and commercial client needs. United Road has also expanded its logistic service network to Canada, Puerto Rico, and was named Ford Autogistics Carrier of the Year for 2008.
“It is an honor to be nationally recognized as a 2009 standout in company growth,” said Wysocki. “As the needs increase for secure and efficient vehicle transportation, United Road continues to value and celebrate a professional staff, excellent work ethic, service offerings and delivery routes that are unparalleled throughout the country.”
