TEMPE, AZ (December 1, 2021) – Spot Freight Inc. (Spot), one of the fastest-growing logistics companies in North America, is excited to announce the opening of its newest office location in Tempe, Arizona, bringing the company’s footprint to a total of three offices across the United States. This expansion is Spot’s first office in the Western U.S. and will further support the company’s goal of hiring 350 employees across all locations by 2023. The new office is located on the 5th floor of 60 East Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe, AZ, and will provide nearly 16,000 square feet of space to promote Spot’s continued rapid growth.
“2021 has been an incredible year for Spot, and we’re thrilled that our growth has led us to expand into Arizona,” said Andrew Elsener, Co-Founder. “Our new location is steps away from the Arizona State University campus, and the area is rich with talent. Spot is at a pivotal growth point in our history, and this expansion into the Western U.S. will allow us to continue to build on the momentum we’ve gained this year. We’re excited to invest in the local community and have plans to hire 50 employees at this location in 2022.”

Red Technologies is a transportation management solution that connects shippers, carriers, and drivers while providing complete visibility into their supply chains. The company plans to hire for multiple technology-related roles in Arizona, including current job postings for a Senior Automation Engineer, Senior Backend Developer, and Applications Integration Specialist.
“Spot was built on four principles: We Do What Others Won’t, We Do the Little Things Right, We Are Capacity-Driven, and We Are More Than Just a Broker,” said Elsener. “We’re looking for talented individuals who believe in these values to help build our team in Arizona. If you thrive in a fast-paced environment and want to make a big impact in a growth-oriented company, Spot Arizona is now hiring.”
