I had the pleasure of speaking with Toni and Michael, co-founders of PortPro. They have a great SaaS business, and it's fun to watch the progress that they are making in this space.

What are recent wins for your company?
Promote yourself!!! We are the fastest growing operating system for drayage carriers in North America! 266% YoY ARR Growth, 607% YoY Logo Growth.
What are some lessons you have learned along the way?
Get organized from the beginning - get your CRM set up and keep your data organized and automate as many workflows as you can. In addition, just go for it - sometimes you have to spend little time planning things, and just execute in order to see what works and what doesnt work. Also - weekends in the startup world don’t really exist :) but if you're actually passionate about what you’re doing, it won’t feel like work.
What’s next for your company?
Very excited about the next products we are about to release that is going to expand our company from being a drayage trucking solution to a bigger supply chain system.
