MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - October 04, 2016) - HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, announced today that Cumberland Farms has chosen HighJump™ Warehouse Advantage as its warehouse management system (WMS). Cumberland Farms is a convenience store chain with locations across the northeast and in Florida that sells a full range of food, beverage and private-label packaged good items, along with other commercial-branded products.
Cumberland Farms, based in Framingham, Mass. needed a solution to replace its outdated homegrown system, a decades-old platform with limited WMS capabilities. The company aims to increase productivity and improve inventory and order accuracy at its 555,000-square-foot distribution center while maintaining scalability. That one warehouse acts as the central nervous system for Cumberland Farms, which has nearly 600 stores in eight states and more than 6,000 employees.
"Last year, we made the decision to find a WMS that would not only modernize operations at our distribution center but prepare us for future growth -- HighJump provides that," said George Fournier, vice president of supply chain at Cumberland Farms. "They understand that food and beverage suppliers face particular challenges like temperature and quality control and addressed those issues. That's what separated them from the competition."
HighJump Warehouse Advantage will allow the distribution center to use system-directed operations, taking advantage of both radio frequency and voice technologies.
"Stocking close to 600 stores with a variety of food and beverage products requires careful coordination that can only be supported with highly adaptable warehouse technology. That made this a perfect marriage between vendor and customer," HighJump Chief Operating Officer Chad Collins said. "We are confident that Cumberland Farms will never need to purchase another WMS after selecting HighJump."
In almost every industry, buyers are becoming more fickle, and more demanding. For logistics executives, effectively meeting buyer needs has become a relentless quest for speed and agility. Traditional supply chain solutions -- siloed, complex and hard-to-implement -- no longer suffice, as competitors find ways to deliver goods faster and more profitably.
In today's "now" economy, HighJump helps you stay agile, with adaptable, connected solutions that harness the power of your trading partner community. From the warehouse to the storefront, from the desktop to the driver's cab, we can help you achieve new levels of supply chain responsiveness, performance and profitability.
