Schneider Electric partners with Manhattan Associates in global transformation drive

Schneider Electric has confirmed its partnership with Manhattan Associates. This tie-up heralds Schneider’s intention to boost its worldwide distribution and transportation operations as part of an ambitious business-wide transformation drive.

These efforts involve deploying Manhattan’s Active Supply Chain. This merges Manhattan Active Warehouse Management (WM) and Manhattan Active Transport Management (TM), designed to optimize the company’s strategic overhaul. It is set to be rolled out in over 20 of Schneider’s distribution centres, and there are additional plans to implement Manhattan Active in 200+ other operational sites.

According to Schneider Electric, this unified approach, made possible by Manhattan Active Supply Chain, is expected to maximise inventory efficiency, enhance processes, and promote workforce agility globally.

Stuart Michael Whiting, Senior Vice President of Global Supply Chain (GSC) Logistics and Planning at Schneider Electric, stated: “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. These two cloud-native solutions represent a significant step forward for our supply chain execution and are another exciting stride forward on our ongoing business-wide transformation journey.”

Fully adopting these cloud-based solutions is a major step in overhauling Schneider’s supply-chain execution and a significant leap in its transformation strategy. This update from a Manhattan Warehouse Management System (WMS) to an Active WMS provides a renewed network in Schneider’s global distribution, impacting its transportation, labour, and automation processes.

Henri Seroux, Senior Vice President of EMEA at Manhattan Associates, added: “Over the last decade, Manhattan had proven itself a valuable and highly capable WMS partner to Schneider Electric. The upgrade to Manhattan’s unified supply chain solution will grant Schneider centralised control over its distribution, transportation, labour, and automation. This process is expected to result in significant efficiency, productivity, and agility gains to the company.”

Manhattan’s unified solution will significantly enhance visibility and control across the entire network of Schneider Electric’s distribution centres and transport operations on a global scale. “Manhattan’s unified supply chain solution will help us optimise inbound and outbound planning and execution, giving us unprecedented levels of visibility and control across our entire global network of distribution centres and transport operations,” Whiting concluded.
