Kodiak delivers freight between Dallas and Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, and Atlanta utilizing its industry-leading technology. The Kodiak Driver, the company’s self-driving technology purpose-built for long-haul trucks, has an advanced technology stack designed to make trucking safer and more efficient. Recently, the company announced partnerships with U.S. Xpress and CEVA Logistics.

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.

“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
