If attendees at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte needed a courier, there’s a good chance they used Metro Transportation Services, LLC. Thanks to help from the MBDA Business Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, the full services transportation company owned by Joseph and Veronica Greene secured a contract to provide sole source courier services to the Convention.
The Raleigh MBDA Business Center also assisted Metro Transportation in creating a 5-year strategic plan, along with developing skills for evaluating and negotiating contracts. As a result, Metro secured a $75,000 line of credit and contracts totaling more than one million dollars, representing a 25% increase in revenues, creating and retaining as many as 25 jobs both directly and indirectly.
"The assistance provided to us through the MBDA program has far exceeded our expectations. In just six-months we have strengthened our internal management capacity 10-fold, solidified new contract opportunities, gained access to capital and established a clear and executable vision for the future.”----Joseph Greene, Owner
