The fastest-growing freight broker in the United States joins supply chain companies worldwide in the global promise to positively impact the environment and economy.
AUSTIN, TX — March 5, 2018 — Arrive Logistics, the fastest-growing freight broker in the United States, today announced its acceptance into the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) Responsible Care® Partnership program, an initiative that holds supply chain companies accountable to lead their industry in ethical ways to benefit society, the economy, and the environment. Being a Responsible Care Partner is Arrive’s second strategic partnership focusing on environmental responsibility following the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay, and comes amidst the fourth consecutive year of aggressive growth.
“At Arrive, we pride ourselves in doing things differently,” says CEO and co-founder, Matt Pyatt. “We resist the status quo and are always looking for a better way to serve our partners. That’s why we are thrilled to be a part of ACC’s program — it’s an opportunity to continue challenging ourselves to be a better, cleaner, more efficient business.”
About The Responsible Care Partnership Program
According to their website, the ACC’s Responsible Care Partnership Program is open to companies that have direct, substantial involvement in the distribution, transportation, storage, use, treatment, disposal or sales and marketing of chemicals. The more than 100 Responsible Care Partners adhere to the same Responsible Care requirements as ACC members – extending responsible and ethical management practices throughout all chemical supply chains. Further, partner companies’ leadership make a commitment to uphold the following Responsible Care program elements:
- Endorsing the Responsible Care Guiding Principles;
- Measuring and publicly reporting performance on an annual basis;
- Implementing the Responsible Care Product Safety Code, Process Safety Code and Security Code within a firm time frame;
- Implementing the Responsible Care Management System® to achieve and verify results; and
- Obtaining independent certification that a management system is in place and functions according to professional specifications.
Partner companies are separated into different sectors based on their primary business operation. The companies that participate in the Responsible Care Partnership Program strive to continually improve environmental, health, safety and security performance for all of their operations and business activities involving products manufactured by its members.
“Our goal day-in and day-out is to provide a truly different experience for our customers and partners.” said Eric Dunigan, who serves as Arrive’s President and co-founder. “We invest heavily in creating and developing unique best practices for our teams to raise the standard for supply chain logistics, so participation in ACC’s Responsible Care Program is a natural next step.”

About Arrive Logistics
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 $320M by the end of 2018.
