Cost Plus-per Carrier: We previously introduced Cost Plus functionality. With this release, we have introduced Cost Plus on individual carriers. You can now have markups on each carrier for freight, fuel, and services.

Calculate shipment and/or order mileage based on customer account-level distance provider setting: 

For shipments with only one customer order and for orders, Turvo will now calculate the shipment distance using the customer account-level distance provider configuration. 

You can find the account-level configuration under Accounts > Customers > select the customer > Details > Settings > Distance Provider. There are two options:

  • Order Distance Provider 
  • Shipment Distance Provider

Note: If no customer account-level distance provider settings are configured, Turvo uses the tenant-level settings. 

For more information, see our Configure distance providers article in the Help Center.

No
CR-17949

Zip based distance calculation on shipment/order: Previously, in PC Miler and MileMaker distance providers, the profile had two options - zip to zip and specific address for distance calculations. When a profile was used on a contract, the system considered the precision setting on the profile, however while calculating the shipment or order distance, the system defaulted to a specific address.

Now, Turvo supports zip to zip for shipment and order distance. 

Note: For MileMaker Guide 20, Turvo will continue to use specific location coordinates to calculate distance.

For more information, see our Configure distance providers article in the Help Center.

No
CR-17931

We have added the following equipment types to Turvo for TL, LTL, Intermodal and Drayage modes:

Changes to Select All behavior in Batch Invoicing Report:

Warehouse Order status rationalization to provide more granular detail: 

We have made improvements to the header and detail statuses in warehouse orders. To provide more granular details about the current status of a warehouse order, both at the header level and the line item level, the following additional statuses have been added to warehouse orders:

Header Level:

  • Plan
    • In Pool
  • Processing
    • Putaway
    • Picking
    • Packing
    • Staged
    • Ship Confirm Pending

Line Item Level:

  • In Pool
  • Committed
  • Scheduled
  • Receiving
  • Putaway
  • Picking
  • Packing
  • Staged
  • Loading
  • Loaded
  • Ship Confirm Pending
  • Unloaded
  • Rejected
  • Canceled

As soon as one line item reaches the respective line item status, the header level status is updated accordingly.

No

Filtering orders for attached documents:

With this release, we added a Documents column in the Orders pages' list view that shows the number of attached documents with a subtext showing the document types added. This feature provides: 

  • The ability to filter for orders based on the document types that are attached to them and when the document was last created/updated; and
  • An icon in the Orders page card view showing that an order has attached documents.

Note: The new column and filter options are enabled by default for all tenants. Your saved filters are not affected by these additions. The Documents column is a default column for the Orders page.

No
CR-16216

Rating and re-rating customer trigger update:

 We have made some updates to our Order Autopilot rules. 

  • For Assigned customer changed, a Rate customer billable toggle with options of global rate and contract rate is now available. 
  • For When an order is updated, we added options for when to trigger rating and provided exception sharing options. 
  • For When an order status changes, we provided exception sharing options.

For more information, see our Autopilot: Automatically Rating Orders article in the Help Center.

No
CR-17978

Default routing and distance calculation now provided by Radar:

On May 28th, we will migrate our default distance calculation and routing service provider to Radar. This change gives us better flexibility and control over the data and allows us to provide a more consistent experience with calculations involving distance in Turvo.

Important note: If you use a PCMiler or MileMaker integration for distance calculations, this configuration is unaffected. Anywhere that you have Turvo listed as the distance provider now uses Radar for the calculation. No action is needed on your tenant and there should be no impact to your workflow.

Places you will see this distance provider change to Radar are:

  • Orders
    • header map
    • card view
    • Origin - destination card on orders Summary page
  • Shipments
    • card view
    • header map
    • Route card on shipment Summary page
    • Shipment Details tab > Route section
    • Timeline > Route map

Additionally, in Admin console > Settings > Shipments or Orders > Distance provider, you will still see Turvo listed as a provider option. Turvo now uses Radar for distance calculations.

No
