With 291% growth in recent years, Tallgrass Freight has been leading the pack. Companies from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin compete to be featured on this annual list. This is Tallgrass Freight’s second year placing on the Inc. list, and we’re humbled to be in great company: 15 total Kansas City-area companies landed a spot too. We couldn’t be more proud to call Kansas City home!

“Here at Tallgrass, we’re building the best freight brokerage in the country,” says COO and co-owner David Barnes. “And it all starts with our independent freight agents. We really have the best of the best here, and we couldn’t be prouder of our people.”

We’re successful because of the right people who treat people the right way. As we add this accolade to our list of recent achievements, we have so much to celebrate. By staying true to our corporate values, mission and vision, we continue to put our best foot forward. We believe in the power of tenacity and being resilient and persistent. We show integrity through the respect that we give to our community. Our agents are committed to hustling with intention and display ambition through their willingness to adapt. And it all adds up to achievements like spot #37 on the Inc. Midwest list

Tallgrass Freight also believes in continuing education and community. We give agents the opportunity to dive into TGF Agent Roundtable sessions as well as our Tax & LLC Seminar so they are able to continue their freight agent education. We also believe in the power of giving back to the community because generosity is at the heart of our company culture. 

At Tallgrass, we know company culture plays a big role in our achievements. We work hard, play hard and always celebrate the wins. (So yeah, you bet we’re celebrating that #37 award right about now!) Our team members are always looking forward to our iconic annual Christmas party, our Club 200 sales rewards trip and awarding agents in the Diamond Club and Elite Circle

There’s no doubt that being an independent agent at Tallgrass means being on a winning team! Come celebrate the wins with us by joining our independent freight agent network today.
