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. Companies are nominated for Shipper of Choice by transportation providers who value the strategic partnership with the shipper.
