Spot Powers Through Headwinds, Named a Top 100 Freight Brokerage by Transport Topics

April 16, 2024

Spot, a leading North American logistics company, has been named to the 2024 Transport Topics Top 100 Logistics Companies List. The company secured the top ranking among Indiana-based freight brokers and achieved a national ranking of 33rd. The annual list ranks companies based on gross revenue from the preceding year.

“Being named a Transport Topics Top 100 company, especially during a period of market headwinds, is a true testament to the dedication and innovation of the entire Spot team,” said Andrew Elsener, Co-founder of Spot. “We’re incredibly proud to be recognized as a leader in North American logistics, and we’re committed to continuously exceeding expectations for our clients despite challenging market conditions.”

This achievement comes amidst a challenging market environment for the third-party logistics (3PL) industry. According to the Transportation Intermediaries Association’s latest 3PL market report, the fourth quarter of 2023 saw a 4.7% decline in shipments, a 4.3% decrease in invoice amount per shipment, and an 8.8% drop in total revenue compared to the third quarter. Despite these industry challenges, Spot’s performance demonstrates its commitment to excellence and ability to navigate complex market conditions.

“Soft freight market conditions have been placing financial strain on third-party logistics providers for the past couple of years with an oversupply of truck capacity driving down rates and squeezing brokers’ margins,” said Seth Clevenger, managing editor of features and multimedia at Transport Topics. “Despite this challenging business environment, the industry’s top 3PLs have continued to drive improvements in supply chain efficiency for their shipper customers.”
