We could continue tooting our own horn, but don’t take it from us. Hear it from our agents:
“The ecosystem Tallgrass built from a cultural perspective is incredibly humbling to be a part of. We’re truly one big family. It was evident from day one how invested management is in the success of their agents – the infrastructure, support and resources are all part of their mission to empower their employees.” – R.H., Tallgrass agent since 2019
“Tallgrass’s culture is a rarity,” Linda admits, “and a testament to how committed the leadership team is to empowering their agents. The meaningful atmosphere sets the foundation for the purposeful work we do. Not only is their level of transparency commendable, but everything from the back-office to the resources provided demonstrates how invested the company is in helping their agents thrive.” – L.F., Tallgrass agent since 2018

At Tallgrass, we’ve built a stable environment defined by award-winning success and a team that shares and values integrity, drive and ambition.
That means our freight agents never have to be concerned with credit from carriers or feel anxious about getting paid. Unlike others in the logistics world, we are proud to say we’ve had no furloughs, no layoffs, no commission trims or salary cuts in 2020. Instead, Tallgrass Freight Co. has grown and we have continued welcoming new freight agents to the family.
