Regional chain Publix Super Markets, Inc. is gearing up to optimize its transportation management processes while keeping operations "green," with the help of Manhattan Associates' Transportation Lifecycle Management (TLM) suite.
Atlanta-based Manhattan Associates, Inc. sells the suite as part of the Manhattan SCOPE (Supply Chain Optimization -- Planning through Execution) portfolio. TLM is an integrated solution designed to help retailers maintain complete control of their network and confidently make the right transportation decisions across departments and external entities based on service needs, locations, carrier commitments, and costs, according to Manhattan Associates.
In addition to enhancing its transportation procurement process, Publix will be able to optimize transportation decisions in several areas, including store and warehouse replenishment, manufacturing raw materials, and transferring products among facilities through both the company's private fleet and contracted carriers, the company said.
"Our reputation for being where shopping is a pleasure starts with our mission statement of being passionately focused on our customers and intolerant of waste," said Maria Brous, Publix director of media and community relations. "Our passion begins behind the scenes by having the right inventory available to our stores. As a sustainable company, we look to ensure that our trucks are filled to capacity with the correct products and that they are efficiently routed to our stores. Manhattan Associates' transportation solution supports our philosophy that 'every day is earth day' by helping us to continue to improve our judicious use of fuel and energy."
