Optimizing Operations with HighJump™ Enterprise 3PL

The Company

More than 1500 highway miles lie between Tijuana on Mexico's Pacific Coast and Cancun on the Caribbean shore. The geography varies from densely populated cities to sweeping ranchland and fertile fields to remote deserts and rugged mountains. Frialsa Frigorificos covers it all, providing services to food producers, processors, importers, distributors and retailers as it continues to grow both in scope and in capabilities.

Technology Evolution

For over 20 years, the company managed its operations at the local level using a legacy software solution called "Frio." Each warehouse had its own instance of the software, generating paper slips, forms and reports to record the movement and status of customers' inventory from arrival to departure and in-between. Customer and management data were developed and maintained locally, primarily through the use of spreadsheets, with consolidated reports forwarded to headquarters for use by corporate management.

The HighJump Enterprise 3PL Solution

Research narrowed the selection process from an initial pool of about 40 candidates to just two: Red Prairie, which the reviewers came to feel was primarily an extended warehouse management solution, and HighJump Enterprise 3PL, which they recognized as an extremely powerful third party logistics solution. HighJump's 3PL solution answered all of their needs for streamlined receiving, put away and stock maintenance, order fulfillment and quality assurance.
