HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, today announced a new partnership with NetSuite, with plans to build HighJump Software SuiteApps using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud Computing Platform. The new SuiteApps are expected to provide NetSuite customers with HighJump solutions for warehouse management (WMS), direct store delivery (DSD) and electronic data interchange (EDI) software.

NetSuite’s SuiteCloud is a comprehensive offering of cloud-based products, development tools, and services designed to help customers and commercial software developers take advantage of the economic benefits of cloud computing. SuiteCloud Developer Tools provide a comprehensive cloud customization environment, whether extending NetSuite to fit business needs or developing completely new applications. SuiteCloud Developer Tools include workflow management, scripting, analytics, web services and more.

“HighJump Software is a longstanding leader in the supply chain solutions market, and an experienced provider of cloud-based services to its customers,” said Guido Haarmans, vice president of business development, Technology Partners at NetSuite. “We are pleased that NetSuite customers should have the opportunity to further improve their efficiency and customer service by adding proven, integrated supply chain management functionality to their cloud-based NetSuite business management solution.”

As a NetSuite Development Partner, HighJump Software plans to launch these SuiteApps out over the next twelve months. The addition of these comprehensive supply chain management integrations to the NetSuite business management portfolio are expected to enable those NetSuite customers who are part of the supply chain – such as manufacturers, distributors, retailers, service providers and others – to accelerate key business processes, drive operational consolidation, and gain insight across the organization for improved decision-making and enhanced product delivery.

“We see an increasing number of companies in the supply chain industry embracing cloud-based services to help reduce IT overhead, cut capital expenditures and provide global access to information,” said Russell Fleischer, CEO, HighJump Software. “To better meet the evolving needs of our customers in manufacturing, distribution and other industries that want to embrace cloud computing, HighJump Software is committed to integrating its market-leading solutions with leading cloud business management software platforms like NetSuite.”

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.

Earlier this week, FedEx said it is expanding its International First service for early deliveries with the addition of 31 new origin countries, which will bring the total number of origin markets for the service to 97.

Monday, December 22 is pegged as UPS's peak delivery day, as the company expects to deliver more than 34 million packages that day, adding that it expects to see six days in December top last year’s peak shipment day delivery record of 31 million packages.
