Supply chain solutions provider HighJump says it is enabling online grocery delivery service Good Eggs with the “connected, automated supply chain of the future.”

The company said it will help Good Eggs meet the unique needs of ecommerce grocery and capitalize on the market’s rapid growth.

“The HighJump Warehouse Management System (WMS) uniquely allows Good Eggs to adjust the system around specific processes—by product, by customer demand and beyond,” said Michael Wohlwend, managing principal of Good Eggs partner Alpine Supply Chain Solutions, a supply chain consulting provider.

“This guarantees the adaptability to meet today’s requirements, while seamlessly scaling with the rapid growth trajectory of online grocery.”

According to Nielsen, in as few as five to seven years, 70% of consumers will be grocery shopping online, leading to an estimated $100 billion in spending by 2024. To capitalize on this, grocers must continue adhering to stringent requirements for food, beverage and other perishable goods, while meeting consumer expectations for freshness, purchasing convenience and delivery speed, HighJump said.

“Online grocery is about more than delivering products—it’s about creating experiences,” said Bill Ryan, chief operating officer of North America at HighJump. “Whether a multichannel chain or niche ecommerce player, HighJump allows grocers and the vendors they represent to be true to their brands, fulfilling online food orders how and when needed at the quality, consistency and delivery options consumers expect.”

Based in San Francisco, Good Eggs provides online grocery distribution from local farmers, spanning fresh produce, meal kits, everyday staples, wine, beer and spirits. As a result, Good Eggs’ inventory is constantly changing, so it partnered with Alpine Supply Chain to lead a WMS selection and ensure its new distribution center leverages best practices to support growth and evolving logistics needs.

“At Good Eggs, we’re committed to providing an ‘absurdly fresh’ experience to our customers,” said Tess Furge, vice president of expansion and strategy at Good Eggs. “The HighJump WMS provides the flexibility for us to properly manage online food sales and refrigerated storage to assure we stay true to this commitment now and as we grow in this dynamic market.”

The HighJump WMS scales and adapts to the needs of small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs), global enterprises and third-party logistics (3PL).
