Ulm, Germany, 21.

Now in its 14th year, the annual Deloitte Fast 50 Technology Award assesses growth rates over the preceding four financial years and reviews the proprietary technologies developed by applicants. Some 200 companies applied for the 2016 award; to qualify for consideration, each was required to demonstrate turnover of at least €50,000 in the 2012 fiscal year and at least €1 million in the 2015 fiscal year. Between 2012 and 2015, the Transporeon Group reported growth of 105.23%, achieving a Deloitte Fast 50 Technology Award ranking of 41 (up from 44 the previous year).

All Fast 50 participants have recognized this need and are successfully exploiting their potential in international competition."
In addition to its Fast 50 Technology Award, Deloitte also honored companies in other special categories.
