Jagged Peak Combines Hi-Tech Solution/Customizable Distribution Footprint to Combat Rising Freight Costs

"Smart Logistics" maximize eCommerce profitability by reducing transportation costs and improving order accuracy, delivery speed and customer satisfaction.

    TAMPA, FL, June 16, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jagged Peak, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise-class eCommerce solutions and supply chain services announced today that it has opened its 15th North American distribution center. The latest warehouse to be added to Jagged Peak's highly customizable distribution network is located in Reno, NV, and is providing fulfillment services for Progenex sports nutrition products. Progenex is a new Jagged Peak client that is also in the process of converting its front-end website to the EDGE eCommerce platform.

Jagged Peak deploys EDGE in each of its warehouses, leveraging its inventory management (IMS), warehouse management (WMS) and transportation management (TMS) modules to ensure all orders are sourced to the optimal warehouse based on critical factors such as inventory availability, proximity to the customer and least-cost routing.

EDGE also manages address verification, residential and business delivery indicator (RBDI) and, using built-in business logic, determines the cheapest but fastest transportation method available, resulting in best-in-class SLAs, including 99.8-percent order accuracy, 98-percent same-day shipping and 96.8-percent next-day delivery via standard ground service (U.S.).

"Call it 'Smart Logistics' or 'Provider Optimization' ... whatever you call it - it's the 'real' part of an online business," says Jagged Peak Sr. Vice President and COO Dan Furlong. "And it goes a long way toward maximizing your online business profitability.

"With the volatility in fuel prices and carriers cutting back their fleets, transportation costs are going to continue to increase," Furlong adds. "We're here to help online businesses combat the rising cost of freight by configuring the optimal distribution footprint, either using our clients' warehouses or ours, and factoring in geographical considerations like customer demographics and state sales tax implications."

"Jagged Peak is unique in that we offer both the technology platform as well as a highly configurable, flexible and scalable network of warehouses," says Jagged Peak CSMO Vince Fabrizzi. "Being able to bring these facilities online quickly, and in the markets our clients need in order to serve their customer base, ensures the products they sell online are closer to their customers on the ground. With inventory optimization, proximity to the customer and access to the most cost-effective carrier services, the results are always the same - expedited delivery, improved customer satisfaction and reduced freight costs."
