HighJump Honored with 2017 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Award
Supply chain execution solution provider recognized 6th consecutive year for sustainable technologies and innovations
MINNEAPOLIS - December 14, 2017 - HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, today announces it is the recipient of an SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 2017. Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE), the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, recognizes the company for the sustainability improvements made possible for its customers with HighJump’s Prophesy Transportation Management System (TMS).
HighJump’s Prophesy TMS is a leading trucking software solution for truckload carriers, LTL carriers, brokers, and private fleets. Along with streamlining operations with capabilities for dispatch, accounting, IFTA fuel tax reporting, ELD/hours of service and load optimization, the TMS enhances green supply chain practices. For example, MBH Trucking eliminated high volumes of paperwork by handling all invoicing and reporting digitally through the TMS. Additionally, HighJump customers can reduce carbon footprints and fuel consumption with route optimization based on historical data analysis and the flexibility to make last-minute adjustments in the shipment cycle.
“Today’s dynamic supply chain landscape requires a ‘total trucking solution’ that simplifies processes, and in turn, empowers trucking companies to implement and succeed with green initiatives,” said Chad Collins, chief executive officer at HighJump. “Our continued recognition from SDCE exemplifies HighJump’s dedication to providing the tools and services that make this a reality today and in the future.”
The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes small, mid-size and large enterprises making green practices a core part of their supply chain strategy. This includes working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The award also recognizes providers of supply chain solutions and services, such as HighJump, making this a reality for customers.
“Honorees for this year’s award demonstrate that corporate social responsibility is a business imperative that transcends the company and extends throughout the supply chain, involving suppliers and customers,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The number of entries only increase year over year, demonstrating how critical sustainability initiatives are within companies.”
“We congratulate this year’s honorees for their commitment to sustainability and recognize their tremendous achievements,” Yuva adds. “Our honorees serve as role models for supply chains globally to expand their CSR reach and impact.”
