CHICAGO, Jan. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, CDL 1000, a leading technology and third-party logistics company, announced former Uber Freight executive Andrew Greco’s appointment as its Global Director of Carrier Procurement. In this role, Greco will bring the innovative mindset of Uber’s operating procedures and creative solutions to the shipping and logistics industry. His primary focus is to build a team that embodies a carrier-first mentality. He will report to CDL 1000 founder and CEO Andrew Sobko.
"Greco’s five years at Uber Freight and five years at Echo Global Logistics enables us to build a new level of trust with our carrier and driver partners," said Sobko. "The logistics and shipping industry is a well-established space that is being forced to take a hard look at itself during the ongoing supply chain crisis. CDL 1000 is stepping out of the old processes and will continue to make key hires from the tech industry as we grow."
During the supply chain crunch, CDL 1000 has continued to grow. The company has partnered with more than 150 individual contractors and deployed more than 10,000 small trucking companies to amplify its reach. The company is also making strategic business decisions including key hires like Greco. CDL 1000 currently has three offices and multiple government and national contracts – many for large, big-box customers. The company plans to hire nearly 200 more employees in the first half of 2022.
"One big takeaway from my time at Uber is in their capacity management and acquisition strategy," said Greco. "Uber’s carrier expansion and acquisition model allowed us to onboard owner-ops and smaller fleets in regional markets. Here at CDL 1000, we’re going to be looking for new ways to partner with similar drayage and over-the-road carriers in 2022. Expanding on this experience will help us build new strategies around untapped capacity."
CDL 1000 provides a wide range of AI-driven technology and cutting-edge end-to-end capacity solutions. Its strategic truck brokerage and intermodal solutions efficiently and effectively move freight throughout the supply chain across the U.S.
