Heritage Trucking invests in technology and innovation by launching a new collaborative logistics solution from Turvo, building on Heritage’s 30+ years of outstanding customer service to grow faster and deliver more value to shippers and carrier partners.
CHARLOTTE, NC — (October 12, 2021) — Heritage Trucking, one of the most trusted logistics companies specializing in flatbed freight, and Turvo, provider of the world’s leading collaboration application designed for the supply chain, has announced their strategic partnership.
This partnership will provide Heritage the Turvo Collaboration Cloud and transportation management solution (TMS) which drive visibility and real-time shipper and carrier collaboration. This will enable workflow automation and improved service levels as Heritage embarks on its next phase of growth.
As part of this initiative, Heritage will be able to unify its customer and carrier supply chain, digitally collaborate more effectively, and provide a differentiated customer experience which is key to its growth strategy.
Building on a Proven Reputation
Heritage facilitates and manages the movement of full truckload (FTL) freight between shippers and carriers across the United States and Canada with a specialization in flatbed freight. Since its inception in 1983, Heritage has built a reputation for being responsive, responsible, and reliable. HTL’s partnered shippers and carriers work with dedicated account executives, ensuring one point of contact who understands the needs of partners’ businesses. By utilizing Turvo Collaboration Cloud and drawing from years of market experience, Heritage strives to deliver exceptional service to its customers and carriers.
“Our aim is to simplify transportation by providing transparency and visibility across supply chains and with this partnership we are one step closer to achieving our goals,” said Onu Okebie, CEO of Heritage. “As our shippers and carrier partners grow, leveraging technology is critical, now more than ever, in order to maintain and increase service levels that our business partners have come to expect.”
Heritage required technology with functionality above and beyond the traditional TMS: a complete collaboration and visibility solution to unify the supply chain network and improve the automation between their customers, carriers, team members, and their back-office systems.
“This partnership will help Heritage provide its shippers and carriers a unique digital experience for end-to-end visibility and collaboration,” said Scott Lang, Chairman and CEO, Turvo. “Heritage has built an incredible business delivering great customer experiences. We’re excited to help power their next phase of growth.”
Serving the Entire Supply Chain
Heritage will leverage Turvo’s collaborative TMS solution, part of the Turvo Collaboration Cloud, which unifies people, systems, and data across their supply chain. With order, inventory, shipment, and settlement visibility as well as shipper and carrier collaboration in one system, Turvo will help Heritage automate its processes and provide better visibility and communication to customers and carriers.
Shippers and carriers working with Heritage will see significant benefits to:
- Real-time ETA visibility & data for intelligent decision making
- Visibility across orders, inventory, and shipments with Heritage
- Global search: find inventory, orders, and shipments with just one click
- Instant access to a designated representative
- Document sharing leading to faster payments
- Access to more shipments to keep assets moving
- Fewer emails, fewer calls = higher productivity
“In the early days of our Turvo implementation, we have begun to see efficiencies in internal processes from order tendered and rates management, to carrier assignment and shipment visibility, all the way to back-office billing,” added Brian Boland, CFO of Heritage. “Having many of our workflows digitized and in one common platform helps to cut down outdated paper processes for employees, gives transparency to our shippers, and reduces time to pay our carriers. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
