Seattle, WA – November 3, 2022 – Convoy, the nation’s leading digital freight network, has earned the #4 spot on FreightWaves’ 2023 Freight Tech 25 list, an annual ranking of the leaders driving innovation and disruption within the freight industry. This marks Convoy’s fifth consecutive year placing in the top 10.
“The potential for technology to improve trucking and reduce wasted money, time, fuel, and effort is limitless, but needs strong partnerships to succeed. When you ask any business to try something new, they have to really trust you and believe in your intentions. We build deep relationships with our customers, partners, and often even competitors. We’re thankful to be recognized by the judges and included in this year’s FreightTech 25.”Dan Lewis, CEO and Co-founder of Convoy
In support of its mission to transport the world with endless capacity and zero waste, Convoy collaborates closely with shippers to build new adaptive solutions to age-old problems. Recent innovations include:
- The launch of Hi-Fi Visibility, a new approach that provides detailed, real-time updates across trailer pools and shipments hauled by Convoy-connected carriers as well as robust analytics to improve supply chain health.
- Enhancements to QuickPay, which allows eligible carriers to get payments delivered directly to their bank account within eight hours of load completion.
- Accreditation of Convoy’s carbon emissions reporting from the Smart Freight Centre (SFC) in conformance with the Global Logistics Emission Council framework, known as GLEC. Convoy is the 4th in-house logistics provider globally to receive accreditation for the use of the GLEC methodology.
The FreightTech awards were formed in 2018. This year’s FreightTech 100 list was selected from a group of 1,500 nominations for 423 companies, and evaluated by a hand-picked peer group of CEOs, industry leaders and investors actively investing in freight. The FreightTech 25 winners were among the FreightTech 100 companies previously determined by a panel chosen by FreightWaves.
