RaiaDrogasil Selects Manhattan Active® Transportation Management to Rev Up its Logistics Network
- August 11, 2021
Manhattan Associates Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) today announced that RaiaDrogasil, the leader in the Brazilian pharmacy market, has chosen Manhattan Active® Transportation Management to consolidate and optimize its entire logistics operations. The first phase of the implementation will be complete in just 10 weeks at RaiaDrogasil’s São Paulo, Brazil distribution center (DC) in Q4 of 2021.
Engaged in a wide variety of medical retail sales, including medications, specialty medicines, perfumery, personal care, beauty products, cosmetics and dermocosmetics, RaiaDrogasil is the leading drugstore company in Latin America and the third largest retailer in Brazil. The retailer recently selected Manhattan Active TM to streamline all aspects of its logistics operations, including ecommerce fulfillment from its DCs and stores, store replenishment, inbound optimization from vendors and marketplace fulfillment for its sellers. That includes the use of capabilities such as network modeling and planning, scheduling, tracking, tendering, routing and more.
Born in the cloud, and built entirely from microservices, Manhattan Active TM is engineered to be extended and never needs upgrading. This next generation TMS is more powerful than ever and offers faster, more intelligent solutions for optimized planning. In a world of complex transportation, improved visibility, accelerated planning and lower costs are crucial.
“Our mission is to take close care of our customers’ health and well-being at every stage of their lives,” said Erivelton Oliveira, chief supply chain officer at RaiaDrogasil. “In order to do this, we needed a powerful solution that could manage our vast supply chain network. With our ecommerce operations growing exponentially and the 11 DCs that replenish more than 2,300 stores across Brazil, it was absolutely critical we chose a solution with all the advanced features needed to manage a logistics network of our size and complexity.”
“We are thrilled RaiaDrogasil has selected Manhattan Active TM for its next generation of transportation management,” said Bob Howell, senior vice president, Americas, at Manhattan Associates. “As an existing Manhattan WMS customer, the selection of Manhattan Active TM is an important step towards achieving a unified supply chain, and we look forward to helping this retailer get there.”
