Attributes 5,159% Revenue Growth to building innovative systems that own the entire fulfillment process
TORONTO, November 17, 2021 — Bolt Logistics today announced it ranked sixth on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 List and 40th on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 27th year. Bolt Logistics grew 5,159% during this period.
Bolt Logistics’ chief executive officer, Mark Ang, credits its natively built technology with the company’s 5,159% revenue growth. He said, “Renting a truck and conducting deliveries isn’t rocket science. It’s relatively simple at a small scale, but where it gets tricky is building the systems to manage the quality of tens of thousands of deliveries per day. We’ve built a robust, wholly owned model so we can manage our merchants’ shopper experience from the time the product touches our warehouse through to it being received by the shopper in their home.”
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”
“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across health care, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500 is more important than ever,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit & assurance practice. “These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology.”
