When it comes to shipping heavy equipment overseas, the process can seem daunting at first…
PARAMOUNT, Calif., — Inc. 5000 magazine ranked CFR Classic as number 1325 out of 5000 on its 35th annual list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy. CFR Classic distinguished itself with 291% 3-year revenue percentage growth!
CFR Classic receives this honor as it celebrates 21 years of moving cargo around the world. As the world’s most innovative door-to-door car transportation company, it has also been one of the fastest growing freight forwarding service companies globally, and continues to grow daily.
Starting out as a classic car transport company, CFR Classic has evolved and grown its overall scope of business activities to include shipping of project cargo, household goods, other types of vehicles like RVs and trailers, boats and jet skis, and to provide shipping services for oversized and commercial cargo. This diversification of service offerings has aided the company in continued growth. Additionally, the company has expanded its network capabilities, customer service, and ability to move goods safely, efficiently, and on time, all of which have transformed it into a leading competitor in the shipping and logistics category positioned to continue its expansion.
“We took bold risks five years ago to revolutionize the car shipping industry. After all that hard work, it is rewarding to make this prestigious list.”
In 2011, CFR Classic helped introduce an innovative way to ship vehicles in an enclosed shipping container which allowed up to 3 to 5 vehicles in one 40-foot container. The old way of placing the cars on wooden ramps was replaced by a lighter, safer, and easier to install rack system that raises the vehicle into a secured position allowing for the cars to be stacked denser together. This new system of shipping vehicles lowers the cost to transport goods, reducing the environmental impact of the shipping process. Since then, CFR Classic has partnered with large car companies that entrust their newly manufactured vehicles for shipment purposes across the world.
