10,445 companies under Freight Forwarding in the United States. There is also a list of the top 25 freight forwarders at this website here: http://www.3plogistics.com/top25_ff.htm

Number one on the list is DHL Services. DHL Supply Chain (DSC) is by far the world’s largest 3PL and contract logistician. Contract logistics revenues were 53% of its gross logistics revenues for 2010. The revenues for Exel (DHL Supply Chain – Americas) contract logistics are $4 billion with 491 warehouses and 95 million square feet of space. Exel/DSC has operations of virtually every kind on every continent. Current major initiatives involve expansion in pharmaceuticals and sustainability. DHL Global Forwarding (DGF) grew through the acquisition of highly respected companies like Danzas. DHL and Danzas are strong branches in Europe and Asia. DGF currently has 31 global carrier partners with 81 contracts on a multitude of trade lanes and more than 330 gateway facilities.
