CHICAGO, November 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Echo Global Logistics, Inc. (“Echo”), a leading provider of technology-enabled transportation and supply chain management services, today announced its inclusion in FreightWaves’ 2023 FreightTech 25 list. The annual ranking recognizes the most innovative and disruptive companies that are changing the technological landscape of the transport industry. This is the second time Echo has made the list.
“The digital transformation of logistics and transport is the principle on which we were founded 17 years ago,” he said Doug Wagoner, CEO of Echo. “We realized this is a highly fragmented industry and poised for technology to help make it more efficient and effective, and we’re proud to be leading the change.”
“We use our technology, along with our industry experts, to meet both large and small shippers and carriers where they are,” he said David Menzel, President and Chief Operating Officer at Echo. “We are delighted to be recognized once again by FreightWaves and our industry peers in this list of the top 25 innovators.”
The well-known 2023 FreightTech 25 receivers were recently unveiled during the F3: Future of Freight Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Echo was part of the original FreightTech 100 list, from which industry CEOs, professionals and peers voted to be the FreightTech 25 using a detailed scoring system.
“It’s a pretty transformative time for the world at large, but also for our industry,” said the Founder and CEO of FreightWaves Craig Fuller. “One of the leaders of this change, Echo Global Logistics, continues to advance the role of technology in transportation with its innovative and industry-breaking technology.”
