Adding shiny new awards to our trophy case year after year is nothing short of incredible. And let’s be honest: we love a good humblebrag opportunity. But this year, as we continue into our second decade, we have so much more to celebrate beyond simply raking in more awards.
From our expanding team to our thriving culture, these recognitions embody who we truly are at our core: our people. And that’s something to be thankful for. We’re proud to watch our tenacious, dedicated freight agents grow – in sheer number, in the size of their teams, and in their books of business.

Our agents are the lifeblood of our company, and the reason we continue to receive local and national recognition each year. And while winning will never get old, we simply love watching our team’s growth. When you have a freight agent program built on transparency, camaraderie, and support, it’s easy to see why brokers want to ditch corporate politics and toxic work environments for a culture committed to their success.
Sure, you’re a business owner, but that doesn’t mean you have to go at it alone. (Shocker, right?) We’re focused on helping our agents build the type of career they’ve always envisioned for themselves, and doing so requires investment in their personal and professional development. From educational opportunities, like our annual Roundtable event, to our back office support and custom-built CRM, everything we do here at Tallgrass is focused on helping our people thrive.
As we move forward, we’ll continue to strengthen our offerings – from our rewards programs and quarterly contests to our mentorship and technology. Why? Because we’ve set our sights on being the best and we’ll never waver from our mission to dominate the industry.
