Chicago, IL – CarrierDirect has continued to stack up the accolades, with Jett McCandless and Joel Clum being recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive as Pros to Know in the freight industry. The firm – which provides consulting and implementation services to clients – assisted in bringing in over $40 million in revenue to over 100 leading transportation and logistics businesses across the globe in 2013.

“It’s incredibly humbling to be acknowledged by our peers for our contributions to help companies grow in an increasingly competitive marketplace,” said Jett McCandless, Founder and President of CarrierDirect. “We have several cutting-edge initiatives and partnerships on the horizon, and we’re always searching for the next service to help advance the work of our clients and advance the freight industry as a whole.”

The Pros to Know awards recognizes supply chain executives in manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes the 2014 Provider Pros to Know—individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who have helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.

The official announcement of the Pros to Know winners was released on February 24, 2014 and will appear in the March 2014 print issue of the magazine. To view the full list of recipients, visit http://www.SDCExec.com.
