Artur Express, Inc. Ranks 144 on First-Ever FreightWaves Top 500 Largest For-Hire Carriers List 

Hazelwood, Missouri, January 11, 2022 – Artur Express is proud to announce we have been named a Top 500 For-Hire Carrier by FreightWaves. Artur Express debuted at 144 on the FreightWaves inaugural list.

“It’s an honor to be named among some of the most trusted and respected carriers. We attribute our growth to our diversified customer base, our hard-working staff, and safe drivers,” said Artur Express Vice President Kristi Randall.

The 2022 FreightWaves Top 500 For-Hire Carrier list ranks companies on the basis of tractor count. Data was compiled largely from publicly available databases and responses from company representatives. For the purposes of the inaugural ranking, “for-hire” includes companies that operate in various trucking modes. As an example, there is no distinction in the rankings between a flatbed and LTL carrier.

We’re grateful for the relationships we’ve built with our customers over the last two decades. Our focus on service to our customers, as well as our drivers, has been a top priority at Artur Express, and we believe that’s helped fuel our growth” said President Tom Tokarczyk.

In addition to supplying the industry with more context, this publication also serves as a thank you to all the people in transportation that kept the country functioning over the last two years.

“It’s an honor to be ranked alongside some of the most respected carriers in the industry. The past two years have challenging for all. Despite those challenges, Artur Express has not only withstood the storm, we’ve grown. Being named in a Top Carrier illustrates to our staff, drivers, and customers the strength and stability of our company,” said Artur Express President Artur Wagrodzki.

“COVID-19 has highlighted the massive role carriers play in our economy — delivering critical goods and supplies throughout the pandemic,” said Craig Fuller, FreightWaves CEO and founder. “This list honors the companies and professionals that helped keep the economy rolling during some of the most challenging conditions in decades.”
