About Us.

OUR STORY

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.

Doss Cunningham

Founder

Doss Cunningham is an entrepreneur, senior executive, and investor with more than 10 years of executive management experience in consumer products. Mr. Cunningham is currently the Chairman and CEO of Nutrabolt Life Sciences, an industry leading nutraceutical business with annual sales exceeding $200 million and operations in over 40 countries. Mr. Cunningham is also an investor and principal in Green Leaf Capital Partners, a St. Louis based private investment fund focused on providing growth capital to middle market businesses.

Seed Sumo provides early stage startup capital and mentorship to new consumer and technology ventures. This latest development has provided him with an opportunity to give back to the entrepreneur community, and is noted by Cunningham as the most rewarding thing he has done so far in his career. Mr. Cunningham received a B.A. in Accounting and later earned a Masters in Finance from Texas A&M University.

Manish Patel

Founder

The freight industry is antiquated, inconsistent, and completely fragmented. We formed Arrive out of pure frustration of dealing with brokers that always prioritized larger, or more profitable customers, over us. Arrive is built around a platform to execute for all customers in our network. Each layer in our organizational structure is held accountable against Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) meant to protect our customer and carrier partners.

Transparency builds trust and this philosophy is deeply rooted into our core values of what we expect from each other and our vendor partners. Our ethos is to grow and intellectually stimulate young and seasoned talent into solution oriented thought leaders that can bring real strategic value, beyond the normal capabilities of a traditional freight broker. Leverage our more than 250 years of combined freight knowledge to help you grow and de-risk your business in the most cost effective way.

Adrian Salinas

Carrier Sales

I spend my days building relationships, managing carriers, and negotiating rates. There is never a dull moment on the sales floor; the competitive atmosphere fuels energy levels throughout the day. At Arrive you are able to be a stud from day one, with no typical corporate ladder to climb. Approaching the leadership team is easy and encouraged. The open floor concept we have makes communication a breeze!

Jessica Mesa

Accounts Receivable Manager

Our investors and managers don't just see us as typical employees. They genuinely care for their employees and take time to help us improve and push us to reach our maximum potential. They take time to help us understand what is new to some and difficult to others. They have taught us to work as a team to help us as a company achieve so much in such little time. Knowing that my role makes a difference to all of our departments pushes me to always give 100%. My work has never gone unnoticed, and that drives me to continue to go above and beyond for a company that gives the same in return.

Kylee Eskelsen

HR Coordinator

I was Arrive's first intern, and luckily for me, this role quickly turned into HR coordinator after I graduated from Texas A&M. I take great pride in building a culture that keeps everyone happy. The thing I like most about our culture is that we are a team and not just a bunch of dedicated individuals. We have a very laid back culture, but every single person here understands the mission of the company and every individual is very passionate about what they do. I love watching this company grow, and can't wait for what the future has in store!

Kyle Kristoferson

Account Executive

My favorite thing about sales at Arrive is our open floor setting and the teamwork required. The culture promotes learning and asking questions to the higher-ups in the company. Everyone plays a role in making sure business runs smoothly and efficiently; this requires constantly interacting with coworkers. I love the thrill of landing accounts and closing deals.

Nick Smith

Carrier Sales Manager

As a Carrier Sales Manager, I make sure that everyone involved with carrier sales stays focused and works relentlessly to provide service to our customers. The people that work here are motivated and goal oriented people, which is what set Arrive apart from other competitors. Everyone here wants to be here and cares about the success of the company.
