Expeditor’s is a Fortune 500 company that provides logistic services along with freight forwarding globally. The company was incorporated in 1979 and was enlisted in the NASDAQ stock exchange in 1984, after the issuance of its Initial Public Offering (IPO). In 2002, the company became part of NASDAQ 100 index. It occupies the 384th position among the Fortune 500 companies.

Its creators, Peter Rose and James Wang, came up with a vision for this company when they were at Lantau Island. Their main focus was on the integration of services. Following the announcement of its first IPO, the company acquired Pac Bridge in 1985, which was a major step in expanding its ocean business. It kept expanding on a global scale and in 1990, was finally able to set up its first office in Brussels, giving it access to continental Europe.

After 3 years, from its venture into the European market, the company entered China by receiving an “A” class license, which is rarely given to international companies. In the following years, the company expanded further into markets of South America, Central America, etc. In the year 2000, it received the award for “The Best Companies to Work For,” as quoted in the Washington CEO Magazine.

By the year 2005, the company had been declared “The Best Managed Transportation Company” by Forbes magazine and was the leader among the shareholder scorecard for the Delivery Services, by Wall Street journal.

Presently, the company operates in more than 250 offices all over the world, with a broad base of employees working for it.
