Shipment Optimization for Lower Transportation Costs and Reduced Carbon Emissions

Rapid multi-modal optimization for hundreds or even thousands of shipments

The HighJump Transportation Management system (TMS) enables both shippers and logistics service providers to reduce carbon emissions while reducing transportation costs. The HighJump TMS simplifies the complex and tedious daily routing task by utilizing sophisticated optimization algorithms to provide a least-cost solution while meeting customer requirements. Quickly plan hundreds or even thousands of shipments into the optimal combination of consolidated loads, continuous moves, pooled shipments and backhauls - across all available modes. When you're confident you've minimized your transportation costs and carbon footprint, one mouse click sends the plan to the HighJump TMS for execution.

The HighJump Transportation Management system planning module utilizes point-and-click and drag-and-drop simplicity for users to maneuver easily within the application. All of this is done with optimization algorithms designed specifically for transportation to ensure the most optimal realistic recommendations for the real life constraints of your transportation network.

Key transportation planning and optimization features:

  • Shipment consolidation
    • Multiple orders to same ship-to address
    • Consolidate shipments across multiple ship or delivery date windows
    • Geographical zone scheduling (i.e., Northeast ships on Tues. and Thurs.)
  • Ability to select most efficient mode of transport, carrier and route-stop sequence
  • Dynamic pool distribution
  • Ability to base trailer capacity on various elements
    • Weight
    • Cube and weight
    • Pallet count and weight
    • User-defined measurements and weight
  • Automatic pronumber (carrier freight bill) assignment
  • Powerful query screens and drill-down functionality
  • Ease of modification for suggested load plans

Facility configuration capabilities:

The HighJump Transportation Management system stores the specific business rules and configurations driving the optimization engine. Because data is facility-specific, each shipping facility can be configured independently. Key facility transportation configuration options include:

  • Customer exceptions - vendor compliance
  • Pool points
  • Trailer inventory
  • Pronumber maintenance
  • Freight bill set-up
  • Capacity planning
  • Pricing options
  • Consolidation rules
  • Delivery parameters
