With more than 8,000 carriers, shippers and brokers within the Denim ecosystem, Turvo’s broker customers now have access to their vast supply chain network making the selection of jobs, carriers and customers for billing just a few clicks. Denim’s freight payment system is designed for established and enterprise brokers, making their offering a substantial benefit to Turvo customers who aim to increase operational efficiencies from streamlined financials and payments. 

“SmartBrokers are the new class of freight brokers. They are eager to use data and eliminate manual data entry within their freight technology stack. Integrations are the key,” said Shawn Vo, CTO and Co-Founder of Denim. “We are thrilled to partner with Turvo to deliver a seamless integration between our platforms that cuts time spent on importing jobs by 50%.
