We're honored to be named among the FreightWaves "Freight.Tech 25," which showcases the most innovative and disruptive companies in freight. The companies were evaluated by over 50 industry executives, academics and investors; including Freightwaves CEO, Craig Fuller, and executives of Steifel, JB Hunt, Keeptruckin' and Daimler. We ranked in 4th place, out of 500 nominated companies. This placement also secured our spot as the industry's most innovative and disruptive broker.
The announcement was made at Freightwaves' MarketWaves18, where we heard insights and commentary from other innovators on the list. Our own Chief Technology Officer Grant Goodale talked about how the supply chain of the future will be data-driven and designed around efficiency and flexibility.
"We're excited to be named one of the most innovative companies in freight. The increasing rate of innovation in the freight industry is bringing real change to the supply chain and Convoy is excited to be leading the charge alongside some of the biggest names in the industry."
Grant Goodale, Convoy Chief Technology Officer
Building technology to make freight more efficient has always been our focus — but innovation means more than building a shiny new app. It starts with deeply understanding the roadblocks that prevent our shippers and carriers from running their businesses efficiently.

In my mid-20s I developed a brain tumor that needed to be surgically removed (7 years tumor free today, woo hoo!). After recovering from brain surgery and realizing that the job I had may have been a contributor to my stress, I took a hiatus from working to concentrate on finding myself.
After discovering what really made me happy (making bagels from scratch) and what made me not so happy (how I felt after eating a ton of bagels from scratch), and my savings started to dwindle, I decided I needed to figure out how to get back to work after my career break.
