Medline Delivers Enhanced Logistics Capabilities to European Customer Base with Manhattan SCALE<sup>TM </sup>
NIEUWEGEIN, March 15, 2021
Manhattan Associates Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) today announced that leading global healthcare provider and medical products specialist, Medline, has selected Manhattan SCALE warehouse management solution (WMS) to optimise and drive efficiencies in its supply chain and distribution functions across its European operations.
With roots dating back to 1910, Medline has grown from a small American manufacturer of aprons, surgical gowns and uniforms to a thriving B2B global healthcare provider. The company has a warehouse, manufacturing and sales footprint in 13 European countries, which puts pressure on its manufacturing and distribution processes.
Tripp Amdur, Medline International Group President, commented: “Historically, Medline’s mission has been to provide our customers with quality medical products, professional service, reliable delivery and fair prices. That’s still our job, but increasingly, our customers are asking for more. They want a logistics partner, a company that will allow them to focus on their core mission of taking care of patients, and spend less time worrying about how to get supplies to where they are needed.”
“We realised that for Medline to provide our customers with enhanced logistic services and analytics, we needed a state-of-the-art warehouse management system. Therefore, we have selected Manhattan SCALE, a best-in-class solution and a robust system that can adapt as technology changes and our customers’ requests evolve.
“The implementation will take place at our site in the UK later this year before being rolled out to our other warehouses in Europe,” added Amdur.
Pieter Van den Broecke, Managing Director at Manhattan Associates Benelux and Germany, finished: “Over the last year, we have been reminded of the critical importance of our healthcare systems and networks. Manhattan Associates is proud to partner with the Medline Europe team to streamline and modernise its supply chain and distribution capabilities; in the process, continuing to support Europe’s clinicians with vital equipment and supplies in their on-going fight against COVID-19.”
