Today, HighJump Software announced it has acquired Evenex, a provider of business-to-business integration solutions. Offering more than 25 years of experience in electronic data interchange (EDI) and trading partner connectivity, Evenex enables organizations to optimize trade relations and exchange business documents across the value chain by open and flexible managed cloud services. Evenex has over 3,000 customers exchanging more than 375,000,000 documents every year and is the leading and preferred business-to-business integration provider in Denmark.

The Evenex trading partner integration solution complements HighJump Software’s existing supply chain application suite which includes warehouse management systems, transportation management systems, route accounting systems, manufacturing execution, mobile sales and EDI solutions. The acquisition of Evenex extends HighJump Software’s EDI capabilities into the EMEA region.

“HighJump Software is a great fit for Evenex because it shares a common focus recognizing the importance of EDI in efficient supply chain execution while providing us with broader solution and geographic footprints,” commented Ole Pedersen, Evenex CEO. “As a part of HighJump Software, we will have access to focused capital to grow in the Nordic region and beyond. I am excited for the Evenex team to join HighJump, while continuing to provide excellent service, support and product innovation to our customers.”

“We are excited to welcome the more than 3,000 Evenex customers and a dedicated group of new team members to the HighJump family,” said Russell Fleischer, HighJump Software CEO. “It is an important first step towards broadening our geographic coverage in Europe, and we look forward to driving organic growth as well as continuing to look for logical merger and acquisition opportunities.”

LM Group News Editor Jeff Berman recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with Bobby Harris, President and CEO of non asset-based 3PL BlueGrace Logistics about various aspects of the freight transportation market.

It’s small, but senior brass at YRC Worldwide will take it. After nearly seven years of continuing losses in excess of $2.6 billion, the parent of the nation’s second-largest LTL carrier posted a narrow net profit in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.
