ArcBest recognized for industry game-changing innovations
ArcBest was recently named a 2024 FreightWaves’ FreightTech 100 company and received an honorable mention in Fast Company's 2023 Innovation by Design Enterprise category. These accolades demonstrate the company’s pragmatic approach to technology and innovation — listening to our customers and working alongside them to develop intelligent logistics solutions that directly address their needs to create more efficient, visible and sustainable supply chains.
Earlier this year, ArcBest announced the launch of VauxTM, an innovative suite of hardware and software that transforms how freight is loaded and unloaded in warehouses, on docks and over the road. We also reported details about our City Route Optimization (CRO) technology for the first time in our 2022 ESG Report. Using machine learning and artificial intelligence, CRO creates algorithms that optimize and build better city routes for our less-than-truckload ABF Freight operations by leveraging legacy knowledge and information on existing routes. Through these technologies and our constantly growing tech stack, ArcBest offers shippers and carriers full digital connectivity, end-to-end visibility, robust reporting, intuitive freight management, the highest security standards and groundbreaking innovation.
This is the fourth time ArcBest has earned a spot on the annual FreightTech 100 list, highlighting the most innovative, resilient and technologically progressive companies disrupting the freight technology sector (also named to the 2020, 2022 and 2023 lists). FreightWaves selects an expert panel of journalists and analysts to produce the FreightTech 100 list each year. For 2024, the voting form included more than 250 companies with information condensed from nearly 900 nominations.
