gm2 Logistics Achieves Success With Supply Chain Execution Solutions From HighJump Software


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HighJump Software, a 3M company, a global provider of supply chain execution solutions, today announced gm2 Logistics has greatly increased efficiency after implementing HighJump Supply Chain Advantage. U.K.-based gm2 implemented the HighJump warehouse management system (WMS) at distribution centers in Leicestershire and Kent, and has driven its percentage of on-time, complete shipments to unprecedented levels through continuous improvement programs. As part of the MAP Merchant group of companies, gm2 Logistics provides specialized warehousing and logistics services for two of the U.K.’s largest paper merchants, James McNaughton Group and Premier Paper Group.

gm2 selected the HighJump WMS to replace its aging, highly customized system. Key to the decision were the HighJump system’s advanced functionality and its ability to be implemented quickly with minimal disruption. The company also needed a WMS capable of supporting unique process requirements, particularly in the area of picking. Today, gm2 uses its new HighJump WMS to manage a variety of picking procedures for third-party paper suppliers for whom the company provides warehousing and logistics management services from its own distribution centers.

“HighJump Supply Chain Advantage allows us to implement creative solutions that meet unique customer requirements at each gm2 site,” said Haydn Costin, WMS project manager, gm2 Logistics. “The solution has also strengthened visibility of our operations, which helps us detect new areas for continuous process improvement, reduce errors and truly deliver superior service to our customers.”

“The HighJump system effectively supports innovative companies such as gm2 in accomplishing supply chain success,” said Jim Walsh, vice president of international, HighJump Software. “With the strength and flexibility of the HighJump system, gm2 can continue its efforts to build and support flexible, customer-driven operations that generate measurable savings.”
