Today, we're thrilled to announce that we are opening our first office outside of our Seattle headquarters with a new office in Atlanta, GA.
Over the past three years, we've grown our customer base to include Fortune 500 brands, regional titans, and local shippers. As we've expanded nationwide, we've seen dramatic growth in the demand of our customers with east coast shipping, and we are opening an office in Atlanta to better serve our customers and carriers across the country.
Atlanta is a leading global center for supply chain. It has strong representation of Fortune 500 companies as well as regional, thriving businesses, and it's a vital location for freight in the US. We're excited to join supply chain leaders such as UPS, Delta, Home Depot, and Westrock by expanding our presence in the city, and we look forward to making new friends in the freight community.
"As we've grown to support the needs of our customers across the country we've been providing 24/7 support from Convoy's offices in Seattle," said Dan Lewis, CEO. "The amazing Atlanta talent joining our new office will allow us to continue delivering industry-leading service, while giving our customers and carriers greater access to our teams."
The office will be staffed by operations, support, and account management teams focused on supporting both current and new Convoy customers.

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.
