Digital Freight Network Recognized as One of the Most Transformative and Innovative Companies in Freight Technology
Seattle, WA – November 11, 2021 – Convoy, the nation’s leading digital freight network, has earned the sixth spot in FreightWaves’ FreightTech 25, an annual list of the most transformative and innovative companies in freight technology. This marks Convoy’s fourth consecutive year placing in the top 10.
“All of us at Convoy believe there’s a tremendous opportunity to leverage technology and automation to drive new efficiencies and reduce waste in trucking,” said Dan Lewis, CEO and Co-Founder of Convoy. “The best part is that we get to do this by solving problems in partnership with so many great companies. It’s exciting to see that these partnerships and our approach to freight was recognized by the judges and that we’ve been included on the 2022 FreightTech 25 list.”
Throughout 2021, Convoy continued to transform the freight industry in several ways, including through its drop-and-hook service, Convoy Go:
- In May, Convoy expanded Convoy Go across the routing guide, offering shippers quality, nationwide capacity across primary, backup, and spot freight. With Convoy Go, shippers can ship as much drop as they want, keeping their loads as drop when their primary carrier fails.
- In August, Convoy launched a new power-only service for private fleets, providing nationwide capacity to haul preloaded and empty dry van trailers. Through the use of machine learning, backhauls and loadouts for trailer moves can also be automatically identified, significantly reducing shipping costs while eliminating carbon emissions from empty miles.
Additionally, in May, Convoy released the company’s first corporate sustainability report. This detailed report underscores Convoy’s commitment to shipping responsibly and highlights the company’s accomplishments across key environmental and social areas in 2020 as well as new goals and commitments for 2021 and beyond.
The 25 companies were determined by a hand-picked peer group of CEOs, industry leaders and investors actively investing in freight. The companies were among the FreightTech 100 companies previously determined by a panel chosen by FreightWaves.
