CarrierDirect Ranked on FreightWaves FreightTech 25

Chattanooga, November 11, 2021 – FreightWaves today revealed that CarrierDirect has been ranked on the FreightTech 25.

The FreightTech Award honors innovation and disruption within the freight industry. Nominations are narrowed down to the FreightTech 100 which is then voted on by a hand-picked peer group of CEOs, industry leaders, and investors actively investing in freight to select the FreightTech 25.

This is the 1st year CarrierDirect has ranked on the FreightTech 25, and the 4th year they have been named on the FreightTech 100. CarrierDirect is one of 33 companies who has been named on the FreightTech 100 list every year since its origin.

Peter Rentschler, CEO of CarrierDirect, shared, “Making the top 25 is a testament to our team, our customers and our partners. We help some of the other Top 100 and 25 winners do amazing things in freight tech, and so our success is built on top of theirs. Congratulations to Project 44, J.B. Hunt, and Redwood Logistics on making the Top 25 as well. We wouldn't be here without you.”

Ryan Schreiber, VP of Industry & Growth at CarrierDirect adds, “Our inclusion shows how essential it is for transportation companies to invest in the right technology. It is also indicative of the attitude in the space: industry leaders recognize the need to transform their business to better serve their team members, customers and partners. We are thrilled and honored to be on this list among so many impressive innovators and disruptors in freight.”
