Tallgrass Freight Co. celebrated multiple milestones, earned key accolades and opened a second brick-and-mortar location in 2019, once again a year of growth for the national freight brokerage.

Everything our agents have achieved has helped us build a destination brokerage where independent freight agents thrive.

Tallgrass Freight Co. (TGF) was honored as part of the Inc. 5000 and one the Ingram’s Corporate Report 100, and spotlighted by the Kansas City Business Journal as part of both the Fast 50 and one of the Fastest-Growing Logistics Companies. “We’re humbled to have a team of ambitious freight agents who work with integrity each day to achieve big success,” said Founder & CEO Damon Anderson.

Building on the success of its national headquarters in Shawnee, KS, the company opened its second brick-and-mortar office in Scottsdale, AZ. “With a strong leadership team in place, we were grateful to open the doors of our second office in 2019,” remarks COO and Co-Owner David Barnes. “Expanding to a new office was the ideal next step.”

Barnes is quick to point to the independent freight agents as the catalyst for Tallgrass Freight’s 2019 success. “We’re proud of every achievement. But we’re far prouder of the professionals whose dedication our accomplishments represent,” he says. As part of the company culture, Tallgrass offers multiple incentives on top of their industry-leading compensation and benefits packages.

In 2019, Tallgrass promoted multiple friendly competitions within the company. Prizes distributed included 65” flat-screen TVs, Microsoft Surface Pro laptops and Traeger grills among others. In addition, top-performing agents and employees plus a guest were flown to Las Vegas, Nevada, on a trip to reward their success.

TGF agents also benefited from the wide range of continuing education opportunities Tallgrass offers. The company conducts monthly State of the Union gatherings and in 2019, expanded their continuing education offerings with sessions like the TGF Agent Roundtable and the Tax & LLC Seminar.

“Everything our agents have achieved has helped us build a destination brokerage where independent freight agents thrive. We’ve got lots to accomplish and we’re only getting started,” says Anderson.
