Turvo, a Silicon Valley startup that's been quietly building logistics management software, has raised $25 million in Series A funding.
Making logistics efficient: Turvo's software lets large business connect all vendors and services they use to ship or move merchandise or supplies ― including brokers, shippers, carriers, and invoices and payments ― so they can manage it all at once. Sort of like a central command center. Turvo charges monthly fees and per-shipment fees to its customers, but they can in turn invite their vendors and business partners for free. Its existing customers include jerky manufacturer Oberto Brands, cosmetics company Le Metier De Beaute, and beer-maker Anchor Brewing.
