Intermodal Cargo Solutions will strengthen cargo handling services, flexibility and customer visibility for continued growth
MINNEAPOLIS (April 9, 2014)-- HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced today that Intermodal Cargo Solutions (ICS) of Durban, South Africa has selected the HighJump™ Supply Chain Advantage suite to optimize business operations for its anticipated growth. ICS is a 3PL servicing the major South African seaports, offering container, warehousing, distribution and transshipment services. The company worked with iWMS, HighJump Software’s partner in South Africa, to select the HighJump warehouse management and performance management solutions.
With these supply chain solutions, the efficiency of ICS operations can keep pace with the company’s growth and offer customers even better cargo handling services, flexibility and visibility. With the warehouse management system (WMS), the company will enjoy fast, accurate fulfillment through directed and optimized workflow. And with its open architecture, the WMS can be easily configured to meet any present or future business need. The performance management system will monitor productivity and provide company leadership with comparative dashboards and real-time data from the WMS that can identify gaps in work and lead to process improvements.
“The flexibility of the HighJump solutions made them the best fit for our business and IT needs, as well as for addressing the challenging demands of our industry,” said Andre de Oliveira, chairman, ICS. “Their ability to retain configurations regardless of future upgrades means a lower total cost of ownership for our company. In addition, HighJump Software is a well-established brand with an experienced network of partners, and ICS is fortunate to have a strong local partner in iWMS.”
“The adaptable nature of our solutions is essential for the fast-changing and complex 3PL industry,” said Gary Nemmers, senior vice president and general manager of the supply chain execution group, HighJump Software. “Our software’s ease of use will allow the ICS IT team to ultimately perform the configurations themselves, further saving the company money and lowering the total cost of ownership. We look forward to working with our partner, iWMS, to ensure that the systems provide the highest value to ICS.”
“I recently visited the Durban facility and it is apparent that the combination of HighJump Software’s flexible WMS and iWMS’ local expertise will solidly support ICS’ growth,” said David Houser, vice president of international sales, HighJump Software. “For example, the new port that is planned is an exciting near-term growth opportunity.”
The flexibility and functionality of HighJump Software’s technology have made it a sought-after provider among 3PLs, including some of the largest in North America and industry leaders in markets abroad.
