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.”

As was the case a month ago, the Global Port Tracker report from the National Retail Federation (NRF) and maritime consultancy Hackett Associates is calling for annual import cargo volume gains at United States ports, as retailers gear up for the holiday season.

More than nine months after saying it was not for sale, Long Beach Calif.-based non asset-based third-party logistics (3PL) services provider UTi Worldwide has apparently changed its tune, with the company saying it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Denmark-based global 3PL DSV for $1.35 billion and $7.10 per share.

September carloads—at 1,417,750—were down 4.9 percent—or 72,597 carloads— annually, and intermodal—at 1,365,980 trailers and containers—was up 1.2 percent—or 16,272 trailers and containers.

Slowing global trade and a bloated orderbook of large vessel capacity mean that container shipping is set for another three years of overcapacity and financial pain, according to the latest Container Forecaster report published by global shipping consultancy Drewry.

The NRF is calling for 2015 holiday sales to see a 3.7 percent annual gain to $630.5 billion, which comfortably outpaces the ten-year average of 2.5 percent.
