HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, today announces Derek Curtis’s recognition as a 2019 Food Logistics Champion: Rock Star of the Supply Chain. The honor showcases HighJump’s commitment to empowering food distributors across the globe to be part of the connected, automated supply chain of the future.
Today’s consumer has ever-higher expectations for purchasing convenience, delivery speed, choice and adaptability. This spells greater complexity for the supply chain, particularly for perishable and fast-moving goods. Faced with increasingly stringent requirements, it’s no longer enough for food and beverage distributors to simply fulfill demand. They must anticipate it, predict it and make smarter, faster decisions. Derek Curtis and his team make this possible.
Curtis and his team enable food and beverage distributors of all sizes to tap into next-generation technology to evolve direct store delivery (DSD) and retail execution. This includes bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives. Capitalizing on the native capabilities of any rugged or consumer-grade device, HighJump’s solution assures workers always have the data they need at their fingertips - whether inside or outside the four walls of a distribution center, store, freezer, truck or beyond. The result is easier deployment to remain FMSA compliant and increased sales opportunities from enhanced inventory management.
The Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain recognizes influential individuals who have shaped and attained milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity and innovation throughout the global food supply chain.
