Industry experts Matt Pyatt and Eric Dunigan started with an idea -- creating a modern freight brokerage fueled by a robust carrier side, best-in-class technology, and a passion for customer service. In order to truly serve both shippers and carriers, Arrive decided early on to aggressively invest in what drives results. On July 14, 2014, Arrive was Born.
Arrive has been focused on one thing since its founding: Raising the standard of what it means to be a broker. Our strongest asset is our carrier side, with 400+ employees whose only job is to build relationships with carriers and enter their equipment into our proprietary system. In a market where most brokers rely on load boards competing for the same capacity, our model separates us. Our carriers receive an unprecedented amount of financial and technological support, allowing Arrive to provide our shipping partners with exceptional service and unique capacity. Our team members are trained to see the world through the eyes of our customers. We are not simply in the logistics business, we are invested in your business -- and focused on using our talent and technology to help it grow.
We are very proud of what we have accomplished since 2014. What was once a 10-person team in a small office in Austin, TX is now a tribe of more than 1000 colleagues working out of Austin, Chicago, and Chattanooga. Reaching $30 million in truckload sales during our first year in business validated our theory that shippers want more out of their supply chain partners. Generating over $60 million in truckload sales in 2016 only continued to drive that point home for us. As a result of our commitment to service, we closed 2017 by generating $145 million. We are not slowing down, in 2018 we ended the year with $370M in revenue We will not stop raising the standard. We will be doubling in size for the fifth consecutive year in 2019 and are projected to generate over $600 million.
