Highline is a leader in the manufacture and distribution of top national brands for automotive aftermarket consumable products, OEM replacement products and private-label goods. The company has more than a million square feet of manufacturing space and distribution centers positioned to reach 46 percent of the U.S. within one business day, 98 percent within two business days, and 99 percent within three business days.
Highline selected Blue Ridge’s Supply Chain Planning (SCP) and Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO) solutions to streamline its 7 ERP systems and multiple demand planning solutions into one cloud-based tool.

Mike Wiegand, SVP Supply Chain, Highline Warren shared, “Blue Ridge has created a lot of value in my company and for my team. Here, I’ve got one single tool which I can use to place all my orders for all my locations. The system talks to each of the individual ERPs, so I don’t have to worry about managing with 7 different systems like I had in the past.”
