Giant Eagle finds a route to greater efficiency with Manhattan TMS
Fragmentation in transportation technologies—with three disconnected systems —led to disarray in transportation strategy. Varying delivery times for more than 460 stores resulted in decentralized routing, ongoing delivery pressures, inefficiency, and wasted miles.
More than 460 stores
Located regionally throughout western Pennsylvania, Ohio, northern West Virginia, Maryland and Indiana, USA.
Giant Eagle consolidated their technology platforms down to a single solution: Manhattan TMS. Optimising inbound and outbound orders allowed the company to maximise cube, minimise empty miles and enable the company to raise service levels with a single application.
Orchestrate every carrier, rate, route, and load with Manhattan Active® Transportation Management, engineered to adapt and grow with your business needs.
Manhattan Transportation Procurement allows you to determine the ideal combination of carriers and balance price against other factors such as capacity, service, and quality.
