FreightPros One of the Best Places to Work in Austin

BPTW logo starburst FreightPros has a pretty simple formula for success: make customers our number one priority. It’s not BS that we need money to keep the lights on, to operate, but those dollar bills are directly correlated to how we treat our customers. If we were like some other freight brokers, we’d supply the cheap freight quote and send you on your way. Damaged freight? Good luck. Invoice discrepancy? Take it up with the carrier. By taking care of our customers, we’ve proudly received some honors: Austin’s Fast Fifty 2015 two years running, three years of the Inc. 5000 list, and Greater Austin Business Awards 2015. All of these are great, but we wouldn’t have them without our customers, and each one of us know it. It’s never easy to run a business, especially one that’s trying to create its own particular niche in an otherwise enormous industry such as freight shipping. But by putting our customers first, even when it’s tough, we commit to creating the sort of company that we can be proud of, one that grows along with our team members, our customers and their businesses. All of this is to say that we’re extremely happy to be selected as one of the best places to work in Austin 2016. It’s pretty cool, not going to lie. The Austin Business Journal announced the list of Austin’s Best Places to Work 2016 in a superhero-themed bash at the Hyatt Regency Austin last week. FreightPros was selected at no.14 in the small companies (25-49 Employees) category. There are a number of reasons why this is awesome:
1.) We are one of the best places to work in Austin. Austin is one of the best places to work in the country (just look at all the people/companies moving here). Ergo, we are one of the best places to work in the country. 2.) We’re one of the best places to work and we’re a freight company. The freight industry is a lot of things, but it’s rarely “cool.” Being selected to this sort of list validates the hard work our team does in forging a company culture that is unique, hip, professional, and fun.
And in perhaps the most important part of the event, FreightPros took home the award for Best Costumes. That’s right, check it: IMG_0657 Lot of things happening in that picture…Power Ranger… ANYWAY, it’s great to be one of the best places to work in Austin. We’re proud of it, and we’re going to make it a priority to move on up the list next year. Going to work every morning (and sitting in traffic) can be a pain, but by wearing superhero costumes and taking care of customers, we make it worth it.
