FreightWaves is a leading provider of high-frequency data for the global supply chain. Each year, FreightWaves recognizes the top 25 Shippers of Choice in the global supply chain.

The Shipper of Choice Awards recognize manufacturers, distributors and retailers who do the best job of keeping the U.S. economy moving by fighting driver detention, providing accessible facilities and understanding what it takes to remove inefficiencies from the supply chain.
