Ten Years of Success and Stability

At Tallgrass Freight, we’re not the flash-in-the-pan type. We’re in it for the long haul. Our vision has always been to build the best freight brokerage in the country. And with our tenacity and ambition, we’ve accomplished that goal in just ten years of being in business. 

We’ve created a work hard, play hard environment that celebrates each win and provides our agents with long-term, fulfilling careers. Innovation and progress fuel our ambitions, but our community and team-based atmosphere will always reside at the center of our success. Unfortunately, that’s not the norm in the freight industry. But hey, we’ve never aimed for mediocrity. We have a track record of excellence, and we’re proud of it. 

As we look towards the future, we couldn’t be more excited to continue providing our entrepreneurial-minded freight agents with the kind of success and stability to take their careers to new heights. 


Awards Powered By Our Success

We can talk all day about what we’ve built. But don’t take our word for it. Our local, regional and national accolades back it up.

Our team’s commitment to stability has been the driving force behind the local and national awards we receive every year. We’ve worked hard to establish an industry-leading freight agent program and a company culture unlike anywhere else. 

In addition to ranking 37th on Inc.’s list of the 250 fastest-growing private companies in the Midwest, we also swept the awards once again in 2021. We’re immensely grateful to have earned the following accolades, year over year over year:

  • Inc. 5000 Series: America’s Top Businesses in the Midwest (Two consecutive years)
  • Inc. 5000 Series: Fastest Growing Private Companies (Five years in a row)
  • Kansas City Business Journal Fast 50 (Four years back-to-back)
  • Kansas City Business Journal Best Places to Work (Three years on the list)
  • Ingram’s Top 100 Private Companies (Four years and counting)

Creating a team of freight agents who continuously push the needle forward is what it’s all about at TGF. Each time we receive these awards, it’s a reminder of how far we’ve come from our farmhouse roots.


The Significance of Stability

A key driver behind our stability and success is our method of supporting our agents. We have big ambitions for helping our freight agents take home more money than ever before. Our freight agents OWN their businesses, and we love providing our agent entrepreneurs the tools necessary to help them reach their full potential. The sky’s the limit at Tallgrass! 

Twice a year, our up-and-coming team members join together for our Agent Roundtable event at the beautiful Loews Hotel in downtown Kansas City! This event is a mastermind weekend full of training and learning everything from financial planning to how to hire a team.

Another way we encourage stability is through ongoing coaching. Sean Richardson, freight expert and our VP of Growth and Development, partners with agents to provide valuable insights on everything from communicating with prospects and relationship-building to sales strategies and effective time management. Agents also benefit from monthly coaching seminars with some of our most seasoned agents to receive all the resources needed for growth.
