Who We Are
Arrive Logistics is a technology driven freight brokerage and one of the fastest-growing freight brokerage firms in the US! With over $2 billion in annual revenue, we are heavily focused on continuing our growth plans year over year. Arrive has not only been recognized for our amazing culture focused around career growth and hyper collaboration, we have also been ranked #6 on Fast Company’s Best Places to Work for Innovator’s list. That said, this makes Arrive an incredibly exciting place to work for those who are passionate about technology, innovation, and bringing different perspectives to the table to solve difficult and interesting problems collaboratively!
If you are not familiar with the logistics industry, you might be wondering what exactly we do here and where Technology fits in. You can think of us as the middle person between Shippers that need to move large amounts of products from point A to B, and the Carriers that can move those products for those Shippers. That process is traditionally very complicated and manual for everyone involved. However, our homegrown ArriveNow technology platform takes those old school processes and automates them. This allows us to effortlessly find flexible and unique solutions for our Shippers and Carriers to ensure trucks get products moved in the most efficient way. We do this by leaning heavily on our Data, Engineering, Product, and Platform Support teams. This B2B platform you and your team will be supporting is used externally and internally as it ultimately creates a much more seamless experience for the Shippers and Carriers we partner with as well as our internal sellers. Our technology is what drives Arrive Logistics forward! It makes sense that Arrive has been recognized across the industry for our innovative technology and we want to continue to lean on the side of innovation moving forward while also remaining a people-first organization.
Who We Want
We attribute our success to the amazing people we bring on. We hire people who are genuine, curious, passionate, and love to make an impact. You will see these traits in each member of our Tech team.
