As we reflect on all of our accomplishments over the past ten years, we’re once again raising a toast to our annual awards that keep us on top! We’re proud to be the best freight brokerage, but we’re even prouder of our unwavering team and the ability to hold these outstanding titles year after year. With the right people who treat each other the right way, Tallgrass Freight is thrilled to announce that we have swept the 2022 awards.
Our team has worked hard to represent the future of freight brokerage. With our agents at the core of everything we do, we’ve built an industry-leading freight agent program dedicated to a company culture unlike anywhere else.
Year after year, these awards recognize our success as an organization — and we’re thrilled to celebrate the addition of a few more polished plaques in 2022.
“I’m excited for the future because we’ve had such a great past,” says COO and co-owner David Barnes. “The people who have helped us along the way saw what we were all about. I feel very confident that in the next ten years, the core group of people will still be there. We have a group of people we can enjoy the ride with.”
