       Kingsgate Logistics is a Semi-Finalist for the 20th Annual Goering Center Family & Private Business Awards. Cincinnati, Ohio 7/23/2019 – Kingsgate is a non-asset based third-party logistics provider, proudly owned and operated by three generations of the Beckham family for over 30 years. Kingsgate has remained grounded by three fairly basic principles – hard work, exemplary service and the highest integrity, but are continually advancing with investments in quality staff, technology, and communications. A 2010 and 2017 award winner of the Goering Center award, this is the fifth time Kingsgate has been named a semi-finalist for this honor.

“Kingsgate is honored to receive this nomination from the Goering Center for the third year in a row,” said Jeff Beckham, Owning Partner. “Our family appreciates the Goering Center’s mission to recognize the positive impact family businesses have on work cultures. Kingsgate’s growth, values and all the changes we’ve made are to honor the legacy of our founders and to provide opportunities for success to the entire Kingsgate Family.”

As a semi-finalist, Kingsgate Logistics will be further evaluated by an independent panel of judges who will be considering the legacy, leadership and culture development that distinguishes Kingsgate from other Greater Cincinnati regional businesses.

The 2019 Goering Center Family & Private Business Award winners will be announced at the awards gala this fall at the JACK Cincinnati Casino on September 10, 2019.  This annual recognition program, in its 20th year, honors Greater Cincinnati regional businesses that exemplify the best in family and private business practices.  Each year nearly 500 businesses are nominated for these awards and from those nominees, 75 semi-finalists are selected.                    

Three awards will be presented in each of two divisions: family business and private business.
