European supply chain services company Wincanton will standardize its European logistics infrastructure on Manhattan Associates' supply chain solutions platform.
The project plan will focus initially on the deployment of Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management for Open Systems solution across 15 sites in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the UK. Future roll-out plans include Labor Management, Slotting Optimization and Extended Enterprise Management, Manhattan's collaborative commerce solution.
Wincanton evaluated 22 providers before selecting Manhattan Associates. "We're seeing a rapidly changing landscape of customer requirements,” said Conor Whelan, group IT director at Wincanton. “Customers are operating in more and more countries and communicating in a growing number of languages, but are increasingly seeking consistency in the way they interact with us. Like most large third party logistics companies, we have grown both organically and through acquisition. The diverse assets we have inherited can not only make systems cumbersome to manage but can also present challenges in providing a consistent service experience to our customers across different geographical regions."
