Arrive's story starts in 2014, when Nutrabolt life Sciences, a leading distributor of health supplements, needed to make a change with how their products were shipped worldwide. Like many high-volume shippers, Nutrabolt's needs were not being met by logistics brokers so the founders approached industry experts Matt Pyatt and Eric Dunigan with an idea, a brokerage for shippers by shippers. Arrive was Born.
Arrive has been focused on one thing since its founding: raising the standard of what it means to be a broker. Shippers and carriers too often have come to settle for less when it comes to their supply chain partners. Our carriers receive an unprecedented amount of financial and technological support, allowing us to provide our shipping partners with exceptional service and capacity. Our team members are trained to see the world through the eyes of our customers. We are not simply in the logistics business, we are invested in your business -- and focused on using our talent and technology to help it grow.
We are very proud of what we have accomplished since 2014. What was once a 10-person team in a small office in Austin TX is now more than 150 colleagues working out of Austin and Chicago. Generating $30 million in truckload sales during our first year in business validated our theory that shippers want more out of their supply chain partners. Generating over $60 million in truckload sales in 2016 only continued to drive that point home for us. We will not stop raising the standard. As a result of our commitment to service, we are projected to double in size again in 2017.
