MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) December 21, 2017
HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, announces its appointment to the 2017 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers. Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, includes HighJump on this year’s list based on the success HighJump Enterprise 3PL WMS enables for food logistics.
“Food logistics comes with unique challenges, all of which can be turned into opportunities for 3PLs with the right technology,” said Joe Couto, chief operating officer at HighJump. “Once again receiving this honor from Food Logistics exemplifies our dedication to driving the innovation 3PLs need to not only meet, but exceed customer expectations in today’s increasingly global and complex supply chain landscape.”
The HighJump Enterprise 3PL is designed specifically to enhance operations for third-party logistics. This includes customers in the food and beverage industry, which must meet the unique needs of their clients. Unlike other solutions, HighJump empowers users to seamlessly handle and adapt to complex, high-volume, multi-client operations. For food and beverage, this includes meeting specific demands for shelf lives of the same products for various retailers, while factoring in the proper travel and distribution times to assure freshness. In line with this, HighJump enables co-storing of goods from multiple clients in a single location or across geographies, mutli-tasking work activities amongst different customers, and simplifying billing and revenue management. NovaCold Logistics and Frialsa exemplify successful deployments by food and beverage customers.
The annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list serves as a resource guide of software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.
“New developments and innovations in the software and technology sector are making sizeable impacts on the global food supply chain,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director for Food Logistics and its sister publication, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The result is a greater visibility, improved regulatory compliance, enhanced shelf life for perishables, and the emergence of a more proactive and nimble food supply chain that benefits both the food industry and its logistics partners, as well as the end consumer.”
Companies on this year’s 2017 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list are profiled in the November/December 2017 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at http://www.foodlogistics.com.
