Musco Family Olive Co. has successfully leveraged HighJump's Supply Chain Advantage suite to launch a new line of Burgundy Pearl olives for the U.S. market. Musco is utilizing HighJump's flexible solutions to effectively manage high-volume fulfillment and distribution, including product tracking and traceability, surrounding both its new and established product lines.
Musco also leverages HighJump's system adaptability to make fast, cost-effective changes in-house, which has resulted in low total cost of ownership.
Supply Chain Advantage is HighJump's integrated, RFID-enabled solution offering for warehouse, transportation and yard management; supply chain visibility and event management; supplier execution enablement; collaborative inventory management and data collection.
HighJump empowers Musco to effectively manage the unique complexities of its business, including seasonal peaks, metalized labeling and promotional coupons accompanying their products. After the olives are canned, they are scanned, labeled and placed in cases. Each case contains a lot code which the HighJump system automatically tracks, enabling Musco to determine the origin of each case and the products' expiration date in the event of a recall. This allows Musco to fulfill USDA and FDA guidelines quickly and accurately, while giving both Musco and its customers visibility into the movement of goods throughout the supply chain.
According to Ben Gibbons, demand planning manager at Musco Family Olive Co., the HighJump system has allowed Musco to collaborate with its supplier network. “We've established a tight, just-in-time supply replenishment process,“ says Gibbons. “Our suppliers simply log on to the HighJump Web portal, determine our needs and anticipate replenishment. It's translated into a remarkable savings of warehouse space and inventory.”
