Tribal Knowledge + Market Expertise

We've brought together a best-in-class team to create our FreightWaves Market Experts Team. Designed to provide SONAR users with dedicated access to some of the best subject matter experts in the freight industry, our Market Experts study freight trends, impacts, movement and data, and provide market insights and strategies exclusively for SONAR users.

Each team member represents a unique set of industry expertise. Collectively, they help to craft a complete picture of what’s happening in and around the freight markets through a multi-lens approach. Combining their deep tribal knowledge and industry experience with data and insights from SONAR, they’re able to deliver valuable and near-time market insights like only FreightWaves can.
