Manhattan Associates Unveils the Industry’s Fastest and Smartest Multi-modal Transportation Optimisation Engine
ATLANTA, May 25, 2021
Today at its Momentum Connect customer conference, Manhattan Associates Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) announced the new Manhattan Active® Transportation Management solution to significantly reduce the time and effort involved in optimising even the most complex transportation networks. The cloud-native solution is the industry’s first self-configuring and self-tuning system and a quantum leap forward in optimisation speed, with up to 80% faster solve times.
Faster and Smarter Transportation Optimisation
“Skyrocketing volumes, shorter delivery windows, and volatile capacity have increased the complexity of logistics networks. Shippers today need faster, easier and smarter shipment planning and optimisation capabilities to keep up,” said Chris Cunnane, research director for Supply Chain Management at ARC Advisory Group. “The next generation of TMS solutions, like Manhattan Active Transportation Management, are significantly faster, but they are also making the transportation planner’s job easier with self-configuring and self-tuning intelligence to ensure the optimal solve every time.”
Manhattan Associates, a leader in supply chain execution solutions, completely redesigned and rebuilt its industry-leading Transportation Management Solution to create a single, intuitive experience for transportation planners to visualize and optimise their entire network. This powerful new solution simplifies and solves transportation challenges significantly faster than traditional TMS solutions.
“Manhattan Active Transportation Management is the industry’s most technologically advanced transportation planning and execution solution,” said Gregg Lanyard, director of Product Management for Manhattan. “Its powerful optimisation engine makes transportation planning faster, smarter and easier than ever, while giving users unprecedented control and flexibility to achieve operational success.”
At the heart of Manhattan Active TM is an all-new multi-modal optimisation core that utilises cutting-edge, in-memory computing. This advanced optimisation engine gives companies the processing power they need to quickly analyse and process large volumes of data to create the ideal logistics plan.
Manhattan Active TM is not just fast, it is also more intelligent. The adaptive optimisation engine within Manhattan Active TM uses machine learning to automatically tune hundreds of traditionally manual parameters to produce optimal results. Manhattan has also redesigned and simplified the TMS user experience. Manhattan Active TM offers an intuitive interface with an adaptive design that provides the same experience across different form factors and devices.
And because Manhattan Active TM was born in the cloud and built entirely from microservices, it is fully extensible and never needs upgrading. In fact, it is the first enterprise SaaS TMS solution to support personalisation extensions without ever impacting future updates. Manhattan Active TM is part of Manhattan Active Supply Chain, a single solution for command and control of all distribution, labour, automation and transportation functions.
Manhattan has built advanced connectivity into Manhattan Active TM. Companies like FourKites, Project44, Loadsmart and many more already come connected and pre-integrated into the solution. The new Manhattan Active Arch makes it easy to onboard additional visibility providers, load boards or other cloud based services quickly and easily.
