It's no secret that Chattanooga, TN is a key U.S. market in the shipping and logistics industry. Chattanooga has seen the rise of several major trucking, brokering, and warehousing companies thanks to two major interstates and a major river in a city that sits as a gateway to several U.S. regions - the Southeast, Southwest, Northeast, and Midwest.
With the focus on innovation and technology in Chattanooga over the last decade and the proliferation of shipping and logistics startups, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see a company burst onto the scene the way Freightwaves has. If you haven't heard of Freightwaves, this podcast episode featuring Daniel Pickett, Chief Data Scientist at Freightwaves, should serve as a great introduction.
In this episode you'll hear discussion about data intelligence, financial markets, the shipping and logistics industry, and the challenges of scaling a technology company in a mid-sized Southern city.
