Turvo | February 16, 2022
Turvo, provider of the world's leading collaboration application designed for the supply chain, and Port City Logistics (Port City), today announced a strategic partnership to underpin the future success of one of the fastest-growing logistics providers in the U.S.
Port City owns and operates 3 million square feet of warehouse space serving the single largest and fastest-growing container terminal in America -- the Port of Savannah. After reporting record growth the past two years, Port City is expanding its warehouse and distribution network and projects a 67% growth rate in 2022. The company required a solution to maximize its warehouse expansion, increase efficiencies, and provide its customers a more digitized customer experience.
From a go-to-market standpoint, Turvo allows us to be more than a commodity, Turvo gives our customers a different tangible experience. From a delivery perspective, Turvo brings together multiple disparate business processes that improve workflow efficiency, reduce cost, and pass on a better experience and transparency to our customers."
Port City CEO, Eric Howell.
Port City, now tech-enabled with Turvo, looks to:
Provide a collaborative network to shippers and carriers for a seamless customer experience.
Scale operations without limits.
Connect with more non-vessel-operating common carriers (NVOCCs) to pre-empt drayage service quote requests and manage bookings in one platform.
Gain more visibility into inventory levels at the warehouse to track and share inventory costs with shipper clients.
Ensure constant oversight and tracking of all trucks and documentation through an app-based experience.
Built on the award-winning Turvo Collaboration Cloud platform, Turvo's technology goes beyond traditional TMS by simplifying the interface between customers and logistics providers, empowering shippers, carriers, third-party logistics providers (3PLS), and brokers with a streamlined social network approach to supply chain management.
Companies that work with Turvo report 3X more revenue per employee, 5x more shipments per client, a 50% reduction in manual updates, and 10x better fleet utilization.
We were looking for the most modern stack with the best user experience that had integration capability and customer and carrier collaboration and visibility built into the platform and overall architecture, Turvo was the only platform that met all those qualifications. Collaboration isn't dashboards and portals, it's true collaboration and workflow participation."

After powering up hundreds of millions of dollars of GrubMarket's B2B sales, and receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from GrubMarket's B2B division, its customers and suppliers, WholesaleWare 2.0 is now being made available to all food industry wholesalers, farmers, distributors, suppliers, and vendors across the United States. WholesaleWare 2.0 combines a user-friendly interface with comprehensive technical functionalities, leading directly to increased productivity and accuracy, waste reduction, profit margin improvement and customer satisfaction. WholesaleWare 2.0 provides end-to-end financial tracking and order management for the food industry. It also includes advanced logistics management and work order processing services, making the software suitable for small to medium businesses, as well as larger international distributors.
