Project44 partners with Turvo – FreightWaves

Two supply chain powerhouses have just consolidated their combined capabilities into a single platform.

On Tuesday, Chicago-based project44 and Bay Area-based Turvo announced a strategic and technical partnership that will integrate project44’s supply chain visibility platform with Turvo’s supply chain management software. . This includes the company’s flagship collaborative transportation management system.

Turvo describes its TMS as a “cloud-based social network”. It offers freight brokers, 3PLs and shippers a single platform through which they can automate all supply chain operations from the first to the last mile. And by being digitized from end to end, the platform opens up communication channels between all the players in a company’s supply chain.

“Turvo and project44 bring together an entire ecosystem of innovative supply chain solutions,” said Scott Lang, CEO of Turvo. “Logistics is a team sport, but outdated technology is making it difficult for shippers, logistics service providers [logistics service providers] and carriers to work together effectively. We are excited to partner with project44 to increase collaboration and visibility throughout the supply chain. »

These collaborative capabilities will now be integrated into project44’s end-to-end visibility platform. The highly rated solution tells shippers exactly where shipments are in real time, and it even provides dynamic ETAs that automatically adjust when disruptions occur.

With supply chain uncertainty at an all-time high, this type of real-time view has become attractive to shippers, carriers, and 3PLs. To minimize inefficiencies, supply chain operators must be nimble, able to adjust or re-route shipments at any time. Days and even hours are no longer enough – now the norm is down-to-the-minute visibility.

“At a time when [supply chains] are more volatile than ever, this partnership enables shippers to gain actionable insights into shipments, orders and inventory from the first to the last mile,” said Thomas Deakins, senior vice president of global partnerships and alliances at project44. . “Together, we can enable the movement of products globally, while delivering better resilience, durability and value.”

Look: It’s visible, now what?

Project44 has steadily grown its visibility platform over the past year, beginning with the September acquisition of Convey for $255 million. Around the same time, he got a call from Google asking the company to be the visibility provider for their Google Supply Chain offering. A few months later, the company received a $420 million investment that brought its valuation to $2.4 billion. It cut 5% of its global workforce last month, however.

Turvo, meanwhile, took a different route. It was acquired by Lineage Logistics in June for an undisclosed sum. However, the company has bolstered its own platform through integrations with FleetOps, Genpro, Trucker Tools, and other companies in the transportation and logistics industry.

Project44 and Turvo said in a press release that the two companies will continue to expand their partnership in the future.
