Emerald Isle, N.C. (February 4, 2020)

Transportation Impact is thrilled to announce the company has been named a Best and Brightest Companies To Work For in the Nation 2019 by the National Association for Business Resources. The Emerald Isle–based parcel and freight spend-management firm was among the 101 top highest-scoring companies of the 540 winners selected from 5,000 nominations.

In addition, TI was named an Elite Winner for Communication and Shared Vision. Elite awards are presented to the highest-scoring companies that demonstrated exceptional innovative human resource practices and set high standards for all businesses.

“With the war on talent hitting the doorsteps of the Best and Brightest, this achievement means even more than it did a year ago. As we continue to raise the bar, these companies rise to the challenge through cultural innovation, maximizing their workforce potential,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.

The award is based on employee surveys, and the 2019 national winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm which reviewed a number of key measures relative to other nationally recognized winners.

“Our employees nominated Transportation Impact for this award without the knowledge of the leadership team, which makes this award extra special for us, especially since we were also named the top company in the category of Communication and Shared Vision,” said Berkley Stafford, CEO, Transportation Impact. “This truly shows that we are united as one team, working together to fulfill our mission. Our employees are our greatest strength.”

Utilizing a collective 750+ years of experience, Transportation Impact develops unique and award-winning technological solutions for high-volume shippers. Since its founding in 2008, TI customers have saved over $587 million through automatic billing error refunds, carrier agreement negotiation, and both real-time and planned shipping optimization for small parcel and freight.

The National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has over 20 years of experience conducting the Best and Brightest competitions. It has identified numerous best Human Resource practices and provided bench marking for companies that continue to be leaders in employment standards.

The companies that have been selected to be recognized nationally as a Best and Brightest Company to Work For® will be featured in the February online edition of Corp! Magazine. The winning companies will also receive recognition at the National Best and Brightest Illuminate Summit during the awards symposium and gala on March 24–26, 2021, at the Westin Galleria, Dallas, TX.
