Turvo, Optym Forge Strategic Partnership ‘To Revolutionize Collaborative Logistics’

Dallas-based Turvo and Dallas- and India-based Optym say their collaboration will help supply chain companies efficiently match available freight with their asset-based fleet's capacity. "Our goal is to unify and automate the global supply chain," says Turvo CEO Billy Sarracino.

Dallas-based Turvo Inc. has announced a strategic partnership with Optym, a provider of optimization solutions for transportation companies that’s based in Dallas and India.

Turvo, provider of a leading collaboration application designed for the supply chain, said the alliance marks a significant step toward “revolutionizing collaborative logistics,” empowering brokers and their carriers to optimize operations, and delivering “outstanding” customer experience through Optym’s LoadOps platform with Turvo’s TMS.

“Our goal is to unify and automate the global supply chain by offering a differentiated TMS product,” Turvo CEO Billy Sarracino, who was named to his post just last month, said in a statement. “Our partnership with Optym aligns with our vision by bringing advanced cloud-based technology and innovative optimization solutions, and empowering logistics companies of all sizes to thrive in a dynamic market.”

The companies said their collaboration enables LoadOps and Turvo users to access a comprehensive transportation management solution that combines asset-based capabilities with brokerage functionalities.
