The Austin-based company secures ranking as one of the highest-scoring businesses with standout employee engagement — adding fuel to their explosive growth.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) May 23, 2018
Arrive Logistics, one of the fastest-growing freight brokerages in the United States, today announced that for the second consecutive year the company has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018 — the publication’s third-annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. Out of thousands of applicants, Arrive was selected based on their vibrant culture, deep employee engagement, and competitive benefits.
What helped set Arrive apart was a combination of their work environment and suite of perks and benefits, including: a full-time company barista and onsite cafe, multiple fully stocked kitchens and a caffeine bar, multi-monitor customized desk stations, competitive dental, health, vision, and life insurance coverage, a generous maternity and paternity leave, as well as paid time off policy, a 401k matching program, free lunches every Friday, fun parties, events, happy hours, sponsored intramural teams, gym discounts, weekly fitness activities, monthly in-office massages, and participation in Arrive’s rewards program in partnership with YouEarnedIt.
“To be recognized for the second consecutive year by Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces is a significant accomplishment for Arrive,” reported Arrive’s President and Co-Founder, Eric Dunigan. “We have been extremely thoughtful to grow our business into a place where our team can have the opportunity to build a career and enjoy coming to work.”
In its fourth year of hyper-growth, Arrive is on track to reach unprecedented marks in the logistics industry as the company has been laser-focused on raising the standard for not only what it means to not only be a freight broker, but what it means to be a sought-after company for top-tier talent. As a result, Arrive has expanded exponentially:
- Today, Arrive Logistics has more than 400 employees spanning two major U.S. cities; with 296 in the Austin, Texas office, and 103 officing in Chicago, Illinois, as well as remote employees.
- Since the start of 2018, the company has onboarded 138 new employees — 44 in Chicago and 92 in Austin. The Chicago office has grown by 287% in a little over two years.
- Across both operating offices, Arrive Logistics has maintained an employee retention rate of 97% month over month.
- By the end of 2018, Arrive is expected to hire a total of 372 new employees — bringing the company team total to 636 before the ring of the new year.
“Our record growth and highly trained teams are capturing the attention of customer and carrier partners, as well as potential new employees,” said Arrive CEO, Matt Pyatt, on the company’s skyrocketing growth in both revenue and headcount. “So as 2018 continues, we are going to remain focused on challenging our teams to achieve our aggressive goals while ensuring our customers and carriers are happy with our services to them each and every day.”

Arrive Logistics is a transportation service provider proudly collaborating with shippers and carriers to deliver superior brokerage and transportation management services. Since 2014, Arrive has worked tirelessly to redefine what it means to be a freight broker; giving partners more by putting proprietary technology, unprecedented operations, and customer service at the forefront of everything they do. They know that in order to maintain this philosophy, they must invest in the people that make Arrive go round. What was once a 10-person team based in Austin, Texas is now a team of more than 400 people spanning two major U.S. cities (Chicago and Austin). The Arrive difference comes from how they train and foster their employees’ development, because that investment directly translates into how they care for their customers and carriers. It’s a virtuous cycle that has not only validated their theory that shippers want more out of their supply chain partners, but it has skyrocketed the business from an already-impressive $30M in first-year truckload sales, to $145M in 2017, to an on-track projection of more than $330M by the end of 2018.
