“This recognition means more to the EASE team than I can accurately describe. We started as a small brokerage in 2014 with big dreams to reimagine how the world thought about third-party logistics providers,” said Peter Coratola, Jr., founder and CEO of EASE. “This recognition from Fast Company is validation that our approach of embracing technology without sacrificing the care and attention of human-led customer service isn’t just noble, but is the next wave of logistics service.” 

Notable achievements in innovation from the company over the past 12 months include: 

  • A multi-million dollar project in partnership with DriveOhio to deploy platooning technology that’s data will support the creation of federal legislations around automated driving systems (ADS).

A second ADS project with DriveOhio will launch in June 2024.

We face daunting challenges on many fronts, but the solutions we celebrate in MIC give me plenty of hope about the future.”
