Foodservice Company Reduces Freight Spend By 10-15% with Manhattan's TMS

Challenge: Even though growth was on the fast track for one of the largest domestic foodservice providers, they were still hampered by supply chain visibility and accuracy challenges. Without visibility, they had no way of knowing how truckload orders were impacting their entire supply chain, leading to increased costs. The company was also facing substantial increases in commodity prices, fuel and the minimum wage - critical elements in the food and restaurant industries. Complicating those challenges were ongoing limited-time promotions, which require immediate responses to spikes in demand.

Solution: They implemented Manhattan Associates' platform-based Transportation Planning & Execution solutions along with Inventory and Distribution Management tools. By sharing information across Manhattan's platform, every department is able to respond to decisions made anytime, anywhere else in the chain.

Results: After just six months, the new visibility yielded: •10-15% reduction in freight spend; •25% improvement in cube utilization; •11% lower mileage; •16% increase in tractor fill rate.
