AUSTIN, Texas (March 23, 2023) – Three executives at Arrive Logistics, a leading multimodal transportation and technology company headquartered in Austin, TX, were recently announced as 2023 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The annual Pros to Know award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage.
Among this year’s winners are Michael Senftleber, Chief Technology Officer, Blair Blake, Vice President of Carrier Strategy and David Spencer, Vice President of Market Intelligence.
Michael Senftleber serves as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Arrive Logistics. In this role, he oversees the organization’s technology vision, strategy and execution. Senftleber spearheaded the fall 2022 launch of ARRIVEnow, the company’s proprietary cloud-based technology platform that uses machine learning models and automation to enable Arrive employees to provide shippers and carriers with benefits like improved productivity, visibility and predictability, along with fewer wasted miles, emissions and hours. Under Senftleber’s leadership, ARRIVEnow supported the company in managing over $2.35 billion in logistics transactions in 2022 alone.
With more than 13 years of experience in the 3PL sector, Vice President of Carrier Strategy, Blair Blake is a cornerstone of the Carrier department, driving strategic initiatives that positively impact carriers and help expand Arrive’s capacity network. In 2022, Blake and his team launched “We Deliver Flexibility,” a first-of-its-kind program that provides a channel for owner-operators and small fleets to connect with private fleets that may have freight service opportunities. The program exemplifies Blake’s commitment to helping carriers succeed and Arrive’s organizational mission, “We deliver, so you can.”
As Arrive’s Vice President of Market Intelligence, David Spencer regularly delivers freight market data, analysis and insights to internal teams, he also writes the Arrive Market Update, a monthly freight market report made available at no cost to help shippers and carriers make real-time business decisions. He also created Arrive’s first-ever Truckload Rate Forecast, which offers shippers invaluable insight into what the year ahead has in store.
“This year’s list is filled with supply chain professionals whose achievements and success stories have helped move the needle in the supply chain. They promote safety, sustainability and workforce development. They work toward helping heal the supply chain. They’re actually in the supply chain,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics.
