FIRESIDE CHAT TOPIC: Turvo uses analytics, automation to unite supply chain
DETAILS: Turvo uses cutting-edge technology to connect shippers, logistics providers and trucking companies through its cloud-based TMS platform.
SPEAKER: Ron Richardson, chief revenue officer of Turvo.
BIO: Richardson has worked with hundreds of Fortune 2,000 shippers, retailers and 3PLs in reaping the benefits of real-time visibility, predictive analytics and global control tower capabilities. Prior to Turvo, he was the SVP Americas for FourKites, where he played a pivotal role in that company’s mercurial rise.
KEY QUOTES FROM RON RICHARDSON:
“For so long, companies have struggled with TMS issues. Some companies had legacy systems where they had five, 10, 15 or 20 years of technology going stale.”
“So much has changed that companies are looking at their TMS investment and trying to figure out how to seize the opportunity to become more digital and more collaborative and really rethink a TMS strategy.”
“An agile TMS means a couple of things. It means being able to execute on those with the fewest clicks, which is key, as well as dynamic pricing solutions.”
