DeSpir Logistics Named ‘Fast 50’ Company

Published on: 

Crain’s Chicago Business distinction—based on revenue performance—is the second honor in just as many years for the transportation 3PL.

DeSpir Logistics, LLC, a third-party logistics provider (3PL) for time-sensitive mission-critical cargo, has been named to the 2023 Crain’s Chicago Business "Fast 50” list. This distinction marks the second consecutive year in which it has appeared in the annual ranking. Businesses that make it onto Crain's “Fast 50” feature those whose five-year revenue performance is verified by an independent financial review.


The company focuses on expedited, high-value cargo—including cold chain—for a variety of industries and products including pharmaceuticals, life sciences, high-value electronics, emerging technologies, and medical devices and equipment.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Chicago by Crain's for the second year in a row,” says John Carr, DeSpir’s co-founder. “We are grateful that our growth continues to be recognized, and are honored to have earned the trust of our clients, many of whom ship life-critical medications and market-moving products.”
