Retail Leader to Use Warehouse Management Software as First Step in New Distribution Center Strategy

Manhattan Associates, Inc. (Atlanta), will implement its Supply Chain Execution software for VF Corporation, one of the world's largest apparel companies. Headquartered in Greensboro, NC, VF Corporation will leverage Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management, Labor Management and Performance Management software in its Outdoor division's newest distribution center (DC) in Visalia, CA.

The software will be implemented based on business needs to streamline for business unit growth, support the implementation of automation technologies and accommodate overall system modernization. VF's Sportswear division started to use Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management and Trading Partner Management software in 2004 and the wholesale division followed in 2005.

"VF Corporation selected Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management solutions with optimization capabilities as we began our new DC strategy because of our excellent existing relationship and the proven results we have experienced from their solutions in other divisions," said Terry Brown, VF's director of common systems.

VF will continue upgrading to Manhattan Associates' latest version of its Warehouse Management software as the DC strategy and business plans allow. As a part of VF's common system portfolio, the company will look to this as the software set to support future growth. The software fits well with VF's existing ERP software from SAP and will help improve the consolidation process and enhance overall performance.
