Trinidad-based food manufacturer and distributor Vemco has selected High Jump's route management and delivery system to power its down sales and delivery processing in the Caribbean.
 
Minneapolis-based High Jump provides supply chain network systems. Its route administration system lets Vemco automate its sales capabilities, provides field inventory visibility into its peddle sales, and enables electronic signature capture for proof of delivery and field invoices.
 
"Vemco was looking for a provider with the flexibility to support all facets of its growing organisation, with multiple facilities, partners spread across multiple islands – each with their own unique manufacturing and distribution needs – along with the capability to integrate existing ERP systems for finance," said Frank Nanton, ERP systems manager of Vemco.
 
The High Jump's interface toolkit provides the automation to support Vemco's ERP with real-time information.
 
"Vemco selected our technology platform in recognition of our advanced and innovative capabilities in the perishable goods distribution market throughout the Caribbean," said Joe Couto, chief operating officer of High Jump. "Our focus is to provide supply chain and logistics expertise to our customers enabling them to execute their strategic vision and plans."
 
Founded in 1958 by Victor and Sally Mouttet, Vemco is a manufacturer and distributor of prominent food products in the Caribbean. It owns and operates a distribution network for frozen, chilled, temperature controlled and ambient products across all channels throughout Trinidad and Tobago.
 
High Jump believes that in almost every industry, buyers are becoming more fickle, and more demanding. For logistics executives, effectively meeting buyer needs has become a relentless quest for speed and agility. Traditional supply chain methods – siloed, complex and hard to implement –- no longer suffice, as competitors find ways to deliver goods faster and more profitably.
 
High Jump says it helps companies stay agile, with adaptable, connected systems that harness the power of the trading partner community. From the warehouse to the storefront, from the desktop to the driver's cab, it says it can help achieve new levels of supply chain responsiveness, performance and profitability.
 
The company's suite of warehouse management, business integration, transportation management, retail and DSD products form a complete, adaptable platform for driving growth, customer satisfaction and revenue.
 
Laboratorios Tornel has chosen High Jump’s Warehouse Advantage warehouse management system (WMS) to help manage distribution complexity. The veterinary pharmaceutical company sells its products in 18 countries across Central and South America, Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean.
 
“I am confident that the implementation of High Jump’s WMS will help support our growth for years to come,” Laboratorios Tornel CEO Carlos Perez said. “High Jump allows us to adapt to the many changes and regulations required in the pharmaceutical industry.”
 
Laboratorios Tornel was founded in Mexico City in 1976.
