Woman, Minority, and Veteran-Owned logistics service provider Third Coast Logistics selects Turvo’s collaborative logistics solution to build on its industry-leading customer service reputation and deliver outstanding customer experiences.
GEORGETOWN, TX and SAN MATEO, CA — August 5, 2021 — Third Coast Logistics, LLC – a Woman, Minority, & Veteran-owned third-party logistics provider – today announced the launch of its new collaborative logistics platform through a partnership with Turvo, provider of the world’s leading collaboration application designed for the supply chain.
From humble beginnings in a loft in Georgetown, TX, Third Coast Logistics has grown to offer truckload, partial, and specialized deliveries through a nationwide network with thousands of carriers. By “going the extra mile” and focusing on building strong relationships with their customers, they built a strong reputation for delivering exceptional service through transparency, communication, and a proactive approach.
Looking toward their next stage of growth, Third Coast Logistics knew they needed a better transportation management system (TMS). But they also realized that they needed something that went beyond a traditional TMS: a complete visibility and collaborative logistics solution to unify their supply chain network and improve collaboration between their customers, carriers, team members, and their back-office systems.
After a thorough search, they selected the Turvo Collaboration Cloud to take their business to the next level.
“In the past, it was always about outworking our competition,” said Michael Becker, President at Third Coast Logistics. “This will always ring true at Third Coast regardless of technology. But with the added visibility and collaboration capabilities that Turvo brings, we can be more efficient and lower costs for our customers while providing first class service.”
“Third Coast Logistics has an outstanding team that understands the value of great customer experiences,” said Luis Pajares, Chief Revenue Officer at Turvo. “With actionable visibility and industry-leading collaboration capabilities, the team at Third Coast will be able to strengthen their relationships with customers and carriers to grow faster.”
With inventory, orders, shipments, and settlement visibility and collaboration in one system, Turvo will help Third Coast Logistics simplify complicated shipments and provide better transparency and communication to customers and carriers.
“We evaluated and have used many other TMS solutions but none of these systems provided the ability to create our own supply chain network and differentiate our service offering through digital collaboration,” continued Becker. “When considering whether to buy or build and the investment necessary to build, we found that Turvo was not only the best technology for us, but provides the flexibility needed as we scale as a company. The collaboration and workflow capabilities are what really drew us to Turvo and made our decision quite easy.”
Turvo will deliver significant improvements to Third Coast Logistics’ operations, including more efficient order and shipment workflow management, analytics, key performance indicators, higher productivity, and full visibility to better book, cover, and settle.
“Turvo will put us ahead of our competition,” added Becker. “We will remain far more nimble and able to adapt to industry changes much faster. Between handling more shipments per person and dramatically reducing the number of emails and check calls needed, we’ll be able to build new solutions for customers and spend more time building relationships with our partners. Ultimately, bringing visibility and collaboration technology to our customers and carriers will open more doors and help us grow.”
