Manhattan Unified Supply Chain powers Schneider Electric’s global distribution and transportation transformation


Manhattan Associates Inc. has announced that global energy management and industrial automation organisation, Schneider Electric has chosen Manhattan Active Warehouse Management and Manhattan Active Transportation Management to supercharge its global distribution and transportation network as part of an ongoing business-wide transformation strategy.

Manhattan Active Supply Chain (the combination of Manhattan Active WM and Manhattan Active TM) will be implemented in over 20 distribution centres and Schneider Electric plans to deploy Manhattan Active TM across a further 200+ operational sites. Unifying both warehouse and transportation through Manhattan Active Supply Chain will bring maximum inventory performance, operational efficiency and workforce agility to the company.

Stuart Michael Whiting, senior vice president, GSC Logistics and Planning at Schneider Electric commented: “After 12 successful years with a Manhattan WMS, we decided to update to Manhattan Active Warehouse Management and extend it with Manhattan Active Transportation Management. Adopting these two cloud-native solutions represents a significant step forward for our supply chain execution, as well as another exciting stride forward for the ongoing business-wide transformation journey.”

Henri Seroux, senior vice president, EMEA at Manhattan Associates added: “Over the last decade, Manhattan had proven itself a valuable and capable WMS partner to Schneider Electric. Upgrading to Manhattan’s unified supply chain solution will give Schneider centralised control over its distribution, transportation, labour and automation, in the process, delivering significant efficiency, productivity and agility gains.”  

“Manhattan’s unified supply chain solution will help us optimise inbound and outbound planning and execution and give us unprecedented levels of visibility and control across our entire global network of distribution centres and transport operations,” Whiting finished.
