Reliance Partners Named on 2020 FreightTech 100 List.

America’s fastest-growing commercial insurance agency for the transportation and logistics space is also one of the most innovative and disruptive companies across the freight industry. 


CHATTANOOGA, TENN. (October 24, 2019)FreightWaves, the industry-leading provider of 24/7 news, data and analytics for the global freight and logistics markets, announced Reliance Partners as one of the winners of the 2020 FreightTech 100 Awards.

The FreightTech 100 highlights the most innovative and disruptive companies across the freight industry, featuring both cutting-edge upstarts and top-notch traditional powers. This year’s list includes 70 returning companies from last year’s awards and 30 first-timers.

The 2020 FreightTech 100 list is the result of over 1,200 nominations for 255 unique companies. The company that received the most nominations this year was nominated almost 225 times.

“This is not a ‘pay to play’ competition; the companies that make it into the FreightTech 100 do so because they are changing the freight industry in new and dynamic ways,” FreightWaves CEO Craig Fuller said. “We want to recognize the most innovative and disruptive companies out there.” 

Companies named in the FreightTech 100 will be judged by an external panel of industry experts, with voting conducted and overseen by accounting firm Katz, Sapper & Miller (KSM). Each member of the panel ranks the top 25 companies on a 1 to 25 point basis. The companies generating the most points comprise the FreightTech 25.

“Data has always been used to calculate driving and safety metrics,” Reliance Partners President Chad Eichelberger said. “But leveraging telematics and integrating with supply chain networks, directly, allows Reliance to prioritize the customer experience, achieve better rates, and secure on-demand cargo insurance products for shippers, carriers, and logistics companies, alike. We’re honored to have been selected for the efforts we’ve placed into upgrading the commercial insurance industry.”

The winners of the Freight Tech 25 will be announced at FreightWaves LIVE Chicago.
