ArcBest Recognized for Groundbreaking Innovation and Excellent Customer Service
ArcBest’s Vaux™ freight movement technology was recently selected as a 2023 TIME’s Best Invention, and ArcBest was named an Inc. Power Partner by Inc. Business Media. Both awards are a result of our innovative spirit, commitment to listening to our customers, and always finding a way to get the job done — things we’ve done well for 100 years.
2023 TIMES’s Best Invention
ArcBest’s Vaux freight movement system was awarded in the TIME’s Best Invention Apps & Software category for creating innovative technology that helps customers across all industries optimize operations and create remarkable efficiencies in their intralogistics processes. This first-of-its-kind suite of hardware and software completely transforms how freight is loaded, unloaded and transferred inside warehouses, on docks and over the road. With the ability to unload the entire contents of a trailer in under 5 minutes and complete visibility into freight movement and warehouse operations, Vaux is a game-changer for companies that need to improve productivity and throughput to keep supply chains moving.
TIME’s 2023 Best Inventions list features 200 of the most impactful new products and ideas that change how people live, work, play and think about what’s possible. To determine the list, TIME solicited nominations from its editors and correspondents worldwide through an online application process, paying special attention to growing fields — such as AI, green energy and sustainability. Contenders were then evaluated on several key factors: originality, efficacy, ambition and impact.
