About the company
At Vorto, our mission is to enable businesses to be more economically and environmentally sustainable by digitally transforming the supply chain.

Vorto is an automated supply chain platform. Within just one year of our launch, we did over $2.3 billion of gross spend on our platform. By automating procurement and logistics for our customers, we have reduced the number of trucks our customers use by 66%. This resulted in a reduction of 150,000 tons of CO2 emission, the equivalent of 200,000 acres of forest, while also increasing the wages of truck drivers which is the largest occupation in America. Today Vorto is uniquely positioned to capitalize on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead the transformation of a $4 trillion industry.
