MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - September 08, 2016) - HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, announced today that its enterprise suite of products, HighJump™ Supply Chain Advantage, now offers a complete shipping solution, HighJump™ Ship. HighJump Ship streamlines the parcel and LTL shipping process for warehouses.
The solution enables organizations to cut down on shipping costs while increasing the reliability of shipments. HighJump Ship also satisfies customer service obligations -- it can track every shipment and keep key performance metrics.
"Customers on our mid-tier WMS platform are already enjoying the advantages of HighJump's shipping solution. Our advanced web services connectivity has been architected to support large and fluctuating volumes," said Jon Kuerschner, vice president of product management and consulting for HighJump. "We're confident this solution will ensure that our enterprise HighJump Supply Chain Advantage clients achieve a streamlined business process from order entry to delivery, even as business requirements from the major carriers continue to evolve."
"As eCommerce orders account for an increasingly large portion of total shipping, companies are looking for new ways to make their parcel and LTL shipping process more efficient," HighJump Chief Operating Officer Chad Collins said. "Customers that implement HighJump Ship can be confident that orders are carrier-compliant and shipped at least cost."
Game room furniture manufacturer and HighJump client American Heritage Billiards saw immediate gains after it adopted the small parcel and LTL shipping solution. American Heritage's shipping errors fell by 80 percent and the 150,000-square-foot warehouse no longer had a problem meeting the 24-hour shipping window.
"Yes, our shipping accuracy has gone way up and our cost to ship a package has gone way down," said Raymond Soltes, director of information technology at American Heritage Billiards. "But, most importantly, our sales are increasing because our vendor scorecard has improved."
"ARC's 2016 survey of warehousing and fulfillment practitioners shows that parcel shipping software is a top investment priority over the next three years," said Clint Reiser, director of supply chain research, ARC Advisory Group. "The content and timing of HighJump Ship's release is well-aligned with the market's needs."
HighJump Ship uses a rating server that pulls from carriers including UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, specialized local couriers and LTL carriers to find the most cost-effective option for every shipment. The solution is certified by those carriers and each order can be easily traced once it leaves the warehouse.
The shipping solution has integrated workflows with the warehouse management system to support various business processes found in high volume eCommerce shipping, including picking directly to shipping container and shipping at pack stations.
