Schneider Electric announced that it is now running Manhattan Active Warehouse Management and Manhattan Active Transportation Management software solutions as part of an effort to improve and transform the company’s operations. The decision to transform SE’s strategy comes after a dozen years of using the Manhattan Associates’ warehouse management system (WMS).

Manhattan Active Supply Chain, which includes Manhattan Active WM and Manhattan Active TM, is set to be implemented in more than 20 distribution centers. Additionally, Schneider Electric has plans to deploy Manhattan Active TM in over 200 operational sites. The integration of warehouse and transportation systems using Manhattan Active Supply Chain promises to deliver optimal inventory performance, operational efficiency, and workforce flexibility to the company.

Stuart Michael Whiting, senior vice president, GSC Logistics and Planning at Schneider Electric said, “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 said, “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 centralized control over its distribution, transportation, labor and automation, in the process, delivering significant efficiency, productivity, and agility gains.” 

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