The Co-operative Case Study
The Co-operative Group is the world's largest consumer co-operative. With a large number of small depots, its food retail supply chain was difficult to service and administer. Manhattan's Warehouse Management solution has enabled the Co-op to dramatically increase on-shelf availability, achieve a 10% productivity improvement at every DC live with the Manhattan solution, and reduce shipping errors.
Three separate networks—ambient goods, temperature-controlled and frozen resulted in delivery zone overlap, illogical distribution routes and insufficient warehouse space.
Manhattan selected based on The Co-operative’s needs for capability to support further development of the network’s physical infrastructure.
Dramatic increase in on-shelf availability; 10% productivity improvement at every DC live with the Manhattan solution; reduced shipping errors.
