QBP Creates More Efficient Packing Processes, Reduces Warehouse Labor Hours

Posted by Guadalupe Pagalday on May 22, 2018 9:59:00 AM

Seeking to optimize its supply chain, Quality Bicycle Products opted for HighJump’s WMS technology — surpassing its goals and surprising even its leaders in the process.

Quality Bicycle Products has always placed a premium on efficiency. With over 5,000 customers around the world and a longstanding commitment to rapid fulfillment, the company must ensure that every bicycle part across its four distribution centers moves through the supply chain as quickly as possible.

QBP primarily works as a B2B vendor for mom-and-pop bicycle shops, handling eCommerce order fulfillment and shipping directly to customers on these small businesses’ behalves. In recent years, however, the company has begun to see a flood of bulk orders from around the country come through its distribution centers, slowing operations and overloading a supply chain built to accommodate smaller shipments. Fortunately, QBP was able to channel the agility of HighJump’s WMS software to navigate the challenges created by this rising tide.

Same-Day Shipping Keeps Colony Brands Competitive in the eCommerce Market

Posted by Guadalupe Pagalday on May 16, 2018 9:40:00 AM

In the face of increased competition from ecommerce giants, Colony Brands turned to HighJump to streamline order fulfillment and jumpstart a same-day shipping policy.

Based in Monroe, Wisconsin, Colony Brands is a mail-order company that has shipped quality food, clothing, and household goods directly to customers across the country since 1926. And for most of its history, the company has relied on the same protocol for incoming orders — processing the whole lot in a single large batch every day.

In 2017, however, Colony Brands confronted a major challenge. Despite the steady flow of orders the company was receiving throughout the day, it didn’t have the infrastructure needed for same-day order fulfillment. If a customer ordered something after 12pm, Colony Brands was simply unable to process the order for same-day shipping.

The company prides itself on its well-oiled supply chains, commitment to customer service, and efficient logistics.

In the past, City Furniture relied on homegrown WMS software that it could adjust as needed in response to shifting demands. Soon, however, it became clear that a more flexible and adaptive warehouse management system would be required to keep pace with the company’s growth.
