MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14, 2018 /CNW/ -- HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, today announces advances to HighJump Ship, HighJump's multicarrier shipping solution for small parcel and less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments. These enhancements streamline operations and grow businesses on a global scale with the digital, connected and automated supply chain of the future.
Expectations for purchasing convenience, delivery speed, choice and adaptability are on the rise. This spells greater complexity for the supply chain, with the rapid growth of ecommerce and ship-from-store fulfillment. As a result, warehousing and logistics professionals need solutions to handle new business models, stressed traditional logistics systems and disparate networks. Companies are also opening up to new markets, facing unique requirements for global distribution. HighJump Ship encompasses all of this, automating processes for efficient, compliant and accurate shipping worldwide.
"The evolution of HighJump Ship brings powerful capabilities to control, simplify and globalize last-mile delivery," said Sean Elliott, chief technology officer at HighJump. "As one of many planned innovations from HighJump, these new offerings drive efficiency and connectivity for our customers' supply chain of today and tomorrow."

- Global expansion: HighJump now supports shipments originating outside of the U.S. and Canada, adding 200+ national and regional parcel carriers in 70+ countries.
- Enhanced HAZMAT compliance: New capabilities for codes and labeling simplify packing and shipping of hazardous materials. This assures proper distribution with qualified shippers.
- Shipping rules functionality: Be it customer class, zones, handling fees, up charges or beyond, exceptions and rules automate how shipping is covered and executed.
- Visual cues: Shipment accuracy and timing is guaranteed with real-time visual notifications on items, enabling best-in-class mobility.
