FreightWaves and Turvo Collaborate to Improve Shipment Planning Clarity and Simplicity
Turvo, the world's leading supply chain collaboration application, announced a new collaboration and integration with FreightWaves, bringing FreightWaves SONAR data to the company's collaborative logistics platform. FreightWaves SONAR is the industry's most comprehensive freight data platform.

"COVID-19 blew up the system in terms of reliable historical data. It demonstrated how difficult it could be to make business decisions based on outdated information, "said Craig Fuller, FreightWaves' founder, and CEO. "Success in the supply chain is determined by the accuracy of your information and the speed with which you can act on it. SONAR provides near real-time data to the supply chain, allowing participants to navigate evolving markets more efficiently and successfully."

"We're excited to bring a greater level of actionable insight to our clients' supply chains," said Scott Lang, Chairman, and CEO of Turvo. "By incorporating SONAR's freight data into Turvo, our clients will benefit from timely, actionable insight as they manage and tender shipments. SONAR data will enable our clients to have a worldwide view of their operations, allowing them to analyze lane profitability and margins better, identify trends, and uncover opportunities to optimize their operations."

FreightWaves SONAR collects freight data from over 1,000 transportation and logistics sources, including IoT vendors, transportation management systems (TMS), telematics providers, on-truck sensors, payment providers, fuel vendors, third-party logistics providers (3PLs), shippers, and carriers, accounting for 85% of the market's electronic tenders. Significantly, most data in SONAR is based on what has happened in the market in the past 24 hours. This perspective provides SONAR with a near-real-time view of market circumstances based on data sets provided by TMS and telematics activities.

"Ultimately, we want to provide our clients with the best experience possible," Lang added. "That implies not just having the best data, but also having access to and analyzing it in a single place. Turvo's one-of-a-kind design unifies systems, data, and people in context, allowing customers to make better decisions."
