We assign Industry Tags to all companies in our database. This way, you can review about 40 industries instead of 1,000 Standard Industry Classification (SIC) codes.

Industry Tags are assigned by a combination of SIC, NAICS, company keywords, and FMCSA fields.

You can see SIC-4 Descriptions and NAICS Descriptions before downloading data. They are in the Company Details. Click a row in the table, and a slider will come in from the right side with details about the company.

On the Excel export file, you will receive codes and descriptions for SIC-2, SIC-4, SIC-6 and NAICS.
