MINNEAPOLIS, MN (June 27, 2016) — HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, today announced Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named HighJump as a Top Green Provider for 2016.
Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers list recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. The list offers logistics professionals a guide to the providers, manufacturers, and software and technology companies that have found new ways to promote sustainability throughout their operations and those of their customers.
“Supply chain sustainability is a top consideration for many companies as they look for ways throughout their organization to lessen their environmental impact,” said Ross Elliott, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, HighJump. “HighJump is proud to offer a myriad of solutions that play a role in helping our customers achieve sustainability goals.”
HighJump’s suite of supply chain technology solutions enables food and beverage companies to support sustainability initiatives. For example, the process efficiencies gained with HighJump’s configurable warehouse management system (WMS) enables our food and beverage customers to drastically reduce their paper needs as well as better control all product flows and optimize product movements, which saves energy. The HighJump retail solution helps food and beverage customers in the omnichannel space make better decisions about getting a product to the customer, whether that’s by shipping, delivery, or in-store pick-up. Retailers, including many grocers, are able to quickly determine the most efficient method of fulfilling a customer’s order, and help save fuel cost and energy resources.
In addition, customers of the HighJump transportation management system can see a substantial reduction in their carbon footprint thanks to a solution that implements route planning for fuel savings, mode selection, and carrier choice. Also, the TrueCommerce Trading Partner Platform allows organizations to easily connect with virtually any trading partner, achieve business sustainability, and reduce environmental impact by saving resources throughout the whole supply chain.
“The 2016 Top Green Providers reached a new record high for applicants and recipients, confirming the importance of sustainability in the global food and beverage supply chain,” says Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director, supply chain network, at AC Business Media. “Our industry’s continued focus on environmental stewardship and the role that growers, manufacturers, logistics companies, retailers and others play is driving heightened awareness and actions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously boosting cost and energy efficiencies.”
