About Us

Founded in 2016, Tortooga is a community marketplace where people can list, discover and book space in shipping containers from freight providers and carriers. It is widely recognized in the industry that only 70% of container space is utilized within shipping containers, with no efficient method of selling this available space available in the market. Tortooga allows you to create a freight container listing for free, with the provider being able to offer a set price per square foot on any given transit route. Customers can contact hosts using the internal messaging system to confirm availability, then they submit a reservation request when they're ready. Our intuitive platform keeps communication and transactions transparent on Tortooga to best ensure trust and safety and to adhere to our terms of use.

When a shipper finds their desired listing, they simply enter their cargo details, provide their pickup/delivery address, and make their payment. Our payment system ensures that money is fully collected and safe by holding payments until 24 hours after the customer has their goods delivered, at which point we transfer it to the carrier. This gives everyone the opportunity to confirm that everything is as expected. Once a reservation is completed, both the customer and the provider can review each other to build a reputation in the community.

Tortooga represents the next evolution in shipping, providing a direct access point to get the shipping you need, when you need it.

Tortooga is located in Los Angeles, California.
