About Jackpine

Our Problem solving DNA.

About Jackpine :

We are engineers at heart, reading between the lines to solve your biggest supply chain problems.

No problem is just a labor problem, an IT problem, or just an operational problem. Jackpine views them all with the same lens. In today’s supply chain, it’s likely they are all connected.

As engineers, we embrace the classic discipline of analyzing a problem from every angle, finding the best solution that’s affordable, so we can engineer it, for the highest probability of success. Lean process events are at the heart of everything we do; whether it is labor management, warehouse management WMS, or technological solutions. This way, we do the job right from the start, to help you progress toward a productive, profitable future.

How is Jackpine different?

  • Engineers, not consultants – We are tactical, technical and 100% focused on moving your baseline and making your company world class in execution. We’re there every step of the way. Plus, we’re dedicated to Industrial Engineering principles popularized by Six Sigma, Lean, and Continuous Improvement.
  • Simpler is better – To us, the simplest, lowest cost answer is the best answer. To manage complex problems, we promise not to complicate things. We simply break it down, decode it and get to the root of the problem.
  • Complete transparency – Our work is technical, yet we promise to share everything about our processes with your team, without using jargon.
    More Engineering for your dollar – You pay only for the best IE talent, not high overhead. We keep it lean so you get the best industry resources, at the most competitive rates.
  • Quiet, no-nonsense approach – We are shoulder to shoulder with your workforce… building tools, training, and working hard to modify your culture to build results.
  • All on the same page – The success of our technical deployments depends on your people internalizing, engaging, executing, and finally maintaining/improving.

The Jackpine Methodology:

  • Our ‘go and see’ approach – Jackpine has deep roots in labor management, repeatable business process, and supply chain engineering. If there’s a more efficient way to get the job done, we’ll find it out on your warehouse where we engage your workforce in real time, and transform your organizational culture to one of continuous improvement.
  • Measure, analyze, and improve your processes 10-40% – If you believe ‘there is a better way,’ then it’s simply a process of measure, analyze, improve – for dramatic results. Our proven data driven decision making has helped our clients improve productivity 10-40% (we can prove it), while also improving quality and turn time.
  • Data driven results for a variety of environments – We use ROI and data-based decision making to improve quality, productivity, speed, safety, flexibility and morale across retail, office work, healthcare, manufacturing, delivery, and distribution environments. We’ve honed our tool kit over the past 20 years, across +400 companies, in +1500 facilities/offices in the US, Mexico, and Canada.
