Australia’s Leading Supplier of Auto Parts, Bapcor Ltd., Selects Manhattan Associates to Support its Rapid Business Growth
SYDNEY, February 10, 2020
Manhattan Associates Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) today announced that Bapcor, Australasia’s leading supplier of automotive aftermarket parts, accessories, automotive equipment and services, plans to implement Manhattan’s Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) across its Australian distribution centres (DCs) network, starting with the first implementation that took place last month at their Nunawading DC. The solution will automate and optimise order fulfilment across Bapcor’s supply chain as the company continues its strong growth trajectory.
Due to its rapid business growth and plans for further expansion, Bapcor has undertaken a strategic program which includes a re-evaluation of its network of DCs. As part of this, Bapcor plans to streamline its supply chain by incorporating distribution to all of its stores from upgraded and new warehouses and is investing in Manhattan’s market-leading WMS to ensure order fulfilment is optimised and fully automated across its upgraded supply chain network.
Manhattan’s WMS will provide Bapcor with a common, scalable solution to underpin its domestic and international growth. The solution provides improved visibility of inventory and data, increased product availability and is expected to drive improvements in operational efficiency across its supply network. With a more flexible fulfilment approach and improved service levels, Manhattan’s WMS enables Bapcor to drive further business growth, revenue and profitability.
Darryl Abotomey, CEO and MD at Bapcor, said, “Bapcor is currently experiencing rapid growth, and to support this we selected Manhattan’s WMS to bring our supply chain together to ensure a more seamless operation that enhances the level of service offered to our customers.”
Raghav Sibal, Manhattan Associates’ managing director for Australia and New Zealand, commented, “Companies today know that they need to deliver improved speed, efficiency, visibility and accountability throughout their supply chains in order to grow and succeed in a competitive marketplace. The highly scalable and flexible nature of Manhattan’s WMS gives our customers the confidence that they have the right technology to support ongoing growth.”
