Drew McElroy is in the freight brokerage business for one reason only: to eliminate waste. That’s a tall order, given the billions of empty-truck miles driven in the U.S. each year, but he’s up to the challenge. As CEO and co-founder of Transfix, McElroy has brought together both freight- and data-minded specialists to tackle that inefficiency and streamline the brokerage process.

McElroy sat down with FreightWaves CEO Craig Fuller on the FreightWavesTV show, “Fuller Speed Ahead,” to explain his love for efficiency and why he welcomes competition.
