Helm’s business model is different than that of most companies – and the supply chain challenges it faces are equally unique.
The business provides branded merchandise, third-party fulfillment and technology solutions to a group of high-profile customers. Clients range from Domino’s Pizza to Merrell Shoes to auto giants like Ford and BMW. Products fulfilled from Helm’s two warehouses range from apparel to car owner manuals to refrigerators and everything in between. Every customer has personalized requirements, and that means Helm must have dynamic, flexible processes.
One of Helm’s central challenges in meeting customer expectations is shipping 90 percent of its orders same-day. Many of the products Helm ships out for its clients are for one- or two-day events – timing is everything.

If the best possible location is not available, you want to place it in the next best location and so on and so forth. In HighJump's Enterprise 3PL solution you tell the system the criteria that you wish it to use for the purpose of identifying the best and the next best locations.
You define your criteria by means of sequences. Each sequence contains a number of parameters for selecting a location. The following example shows five sequences that progressively define increasingly less desirable locations.

Voice-activated picking – or as it is sometimes called “hands-free, eyes free picking” – can offer significant improvements in accuracy and productivity that paper-based or RF-terminal-based picking can never match.
Here are some benefits of a voice-directed picking
- Increase picking accuracy, inventory accuracy and employee productivity
- Improve worker safety, by freeing a picker's eyes and hands
- Reduced new worker training time
- Increases job satisfaction for warehouse associates
- Eliminates cost of printing and distributing picking documents
- Increase customer satisfaction
So what should the 3PL operator look for when considering a voice-activated solution? First and foremost is flexibility. That is, the ability to define different sets of voice-activated picking rules for different customers, carriers, consignees, items, orders, locations and warehouses.
