Inc. magazine recently revealed its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: Midwest list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the region. And we’re honored to be part of this list — ranking #34!
Tallgrass Freight is thankful to be at the head of the class of the 250 fastest-growing private companies in the Midwest, with 512.59% growth. The list includes companies from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
Ultimately, it’s a testament to our beyond-compare team of independent agents. With the right people who treat each other the right way, we’re building the best freight brokerage in the country here at Tallgrass Freight Co. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished — but we’re far prouder of our team.
“Company culture is so much more than just a grill behind the office,” says Damon Anderson, the Founder and CEO of Tallgrass Freight. “Here at Tallgrass Freight, corporate culture means support. It means connections with the team. It means communication. It means giving back. It means our values. It means people you actually want to spend time with! We’re really humbled to have the best of the best on our team.”
Here at Tallgrass, culture looks like continuing education, community and giving back. We’ve leaned into our continuing freight agent education, with sessions like the TGF Agent Roundtable and our Tax & LLC Seminar. We love connecting with the TGF family consistently, especially during our monthly State of the Union gatherings. We give back to remarkable organizations making a difference, from Kansas City-based nonprofits to international organizations.
And we’re a work-hard-play-hard team. We all look forward to our epic annual Christmas party, when we all fly in from around the country to celebrate in Kansas City. (The 2020 party will be our best one yet!) We celebrate the accomplishments of our most elite agents with our Club 200 and Diamond Club. Plus, our agents have a little friendly competition in sales contests throughout the year!
At Tallgrass Freight, agents find both the freedom and the support they need to thrive. Our agents focus on what they love most about being a freight broker. Our team shares integrity, tenacity and ambition. You won’t find this anywhere else. Join our independent agent network today!
