Named 2020 FreightTech 25 and FreightTech 100 company
Ranked 63 on Idaho Private 100 fastest growing companies
Named 'Top Place for Women to Work for In Transportation' by the Women In Trucking Association (WIT)
BOISE, ID / ACCESSWIRE / December 9, 2019 / Truckstop.com, the largest neutral freight matching marketplace in North America, has been named one of the freight industry's most innovative companies, ranking 11th on the FreightWaves' FreightTech 25. Truckstop.com was also named to the FreightTech 100 in October and was the second-most nominated company at this year's awards. Sixty judges ranked the companies on the FreightTech 100 list to determine the top 25 leading innovators. FreightWaves is a digital resource for data, news and commentary about the North American freight market.
"Last year when we decided to roll out an awards recognition, we wanted to do it differently. A lot of awards in the industry are pay to play, and they end up meaning nothing," said Craig Fuller, CEO, FrieghtWaves. "We decided to create a freight tech award that has actual meaning."
"Inclusion in the FreightTech 25 is a testament to the customers and partners that keep us focused on what matters most," said Paris Cole, CEO, Truckstop.com. "Our goal has always been to help carriers and freight brokers find a better way to do business, and our success is directly connected with how well we listen and implement their feedback."
By focusing on customer needs and developing tools to make their lives easier, Truckstop.com survived and grew during two of the largest economic disasters of the 21st century-the Dot-com bubble and the recession of 2008-and positioned itself for continued growth and success. Since 2016, the company has announced two private equity investments which have helped expand its executive leadership team, add tens of thousands of customers, create hundreds of new jobs, complete multiple acquisitions, and invest heavily in product development and infrastructure build-out. The investment from ICONIQ Capital in April of this year, was one of the largest in Idaho history, and represents a significant investment in technology innovation in the State.
In addition to appearing on the FreightTech 25 and 100 lists, Truckstop.com was named to the Idaho Private 100, a list of the State's fastest-growing private companies. The Idaho Private 100 have been celebrating economic growth and development in the state for more than 20 years. Selected companies are privately owned and headquartered in Idaho. Participation is voluntary and rankings are based on company revenues from the previous fiscal year. This was the first year Truckstop.com participated in the list.
"We are proud to celebrate the businesses that make Idaho one of the top states in the country to live and work," said Rusty Dodge, Idaho Statesman Publisher and Regional VP, Northwest Sales. "Idaho's business community is an inspiring destination for talent and investment."
Truckstop.com was also recognized, for the second year in a row, in Redefining the Road magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), as a recipient of the 2019 "Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation." Companies on the list are distinguished by corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities.
