Spot Freight Inc. (Spot), is pleased to announce that it has ranked on the Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For list []. Each year, the corporate research team at Selling Power magazine assembles and publishes its list of the 50 Best Companies to Sell For. The list encompasses companies of all sizes – with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to companies with sales-force numbers in the thousands.

“We are extremely proud of our sales team and the competitive, high energy, and fast-paced sales culture we’ve created here,” said Andrew Elsener, Spot Co-Founder. “The success of our business is very much driven by sales, and we continuously strive to ensure that our team is supported and rewarded for their efforts through comprehensive training, coaching, and incentives. This ranking acknowledges our focus on providing our customers with a smarter way to ship while attracting and retaining the best talent in the transportation industry.”

To gather data, the Selling Power research team issued a comprehensive application with detailed sections covering three broader categories:

  1. Compensation and Benefits
  2. Hiring, Sales Training, and Sales Enablement
  3. Customer Retention

Stemming from office expansions at both its Indianapolis headquarters and Charlotte satellite office, Spot’s sales team has grown by approximately 80% over the past year. The logistics company also launched a restructured training program to further prepare its sales force through mentoring, sales huddles, speaker series, and more.

Selling Power magazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says it is vital to recognize companies that are creating excellent sales teams today. “Successful sales teams know how to embrace change,” says Gschwandtner. “That could be in the form of technology or in the form of process. Each organization featured on the 50 Best Companies to Sell For list represents an elite, agile selling environment that understands how to lead in their market.”
