It’s not every day we get to speak with a founder that’s innovating an entire industry. We were lucky enough to pick Craig Fuller’s brain learning all about the FreightWaves founding story.
We found out that Craig’s dad started U.S. Express, which Craig’s brother runs as the CEO with 10,000 + employees. Craig ended up working with his dad at one point on a payments venture which caused tensions within the Fuller family.
Craig got interested in markets day trading and came up with an idea to start FreightWaves by creating a data product and then covering topics in the freight market to give context to their data.
Craig’s dad initially didn’t invest in FreightWaves, but it came full circle when Craig got to interview his father Max on Fuller Speed Ahead. There’s a ton of learnings in this episode as Craig is a true pioneer in the logistics industry.
