Building Sustainability into Our Solutions
Whether it’s empowering consumers to make ‘greener’ buying decisions, creating smarter algorithms that allow organisations to reduce CO2 emissions by filling trucks more efficiently, partnering with carbon neutral brands like Google Cloud to power our cloud-based solutions, or simply designing products that place both people and planet, front of mind, Manhattan Associates is committed to helping our customers run their supply chains in more sustainable and environmentally aware ways.
Empowering Greener Consumer Buying Decisions
Thanks to advanced capabilities available with Manhattan Active® Omni, there is a smarter way to manage D2C operations, allowing the customer to have more influence over their retail supply chain decisions. Our hope is that by enabling our customers to give consumers the ability to influence the fulfilment process, they will make more informed and greener choices.
Wasted Space is Bad for the Planet Not Just Your P&L
Smarter Pallet Fill Algorithms, such as those built into Manhattan Active Inventory, can provide as much as a seven percent increase in truck fill ratios.
Smarter, Greener Approaches to Transportation
Manhattan Active Transportation Management is not just fast, it’s also more intelligent, making transportation planning and networks less carbon intense. Whether incorporating real-time weather, traffic, low emission zone data, or providing 80 percent faster solve times, a smarter, data-driven transportation management solution can have a significantly positive effect on environmental emissions too.
Choosing the Right Partners
As supply chain solutions increasingly become cloud based, the nature of the providers hosting them becomes more relevant. For example, by partnering with Google Cloud as our platform for our Manhattan Active cloud solutions, we have reduced our carbon footprint. The Google Cloud platform’s continuous innovation, and its net carbon-neutral cloud, means that the working partnership between both industry leading teams continues to be a perfect match of brand and environmental values.
“Within 12 months of implementation, Super Retail Group in Australia was able to reduce split-order shipments by 24% thus reducing fulfilment costs by double digits through less packaging and fewer miles on the road.”
