Wincanton, the largest British logistics business, today announced its continued dedication to delivering innovative, high-performing supply chain solutions to tackle the unique challenges of the retail industry following its implementation of the latest, platform edition of Manhattan Associates’ Warehouse Management System (WMS).
Manhattan’s market-leading multichannel fulfilment solution will provide Wincanton and its retail customers with a flexible order fulfilment approach that delivers an integrated, omni-buying experience for the consumer, including more choices for how they buy and take delivery of their goods.
Liam McElroy, Managing Director Retail and Consumer at Wincanton, said of the announcement: “It’s important for Wincanton to ensure we stay ahead of the curve and provide our customers with the very best in multichannel solutions. By building on the relationship we have enjoyed with Manhattan Associates since 2007, which has already included a number of successful WMS implementations, we can be assured that our specific requirements and those of our customers are not only met today but also anticipated for the future.”
McElroy added, “One of the first Wincanton customers to benefit from this latest version of Manhattan’s solution is Majestic Wine, the UK’s largest specialist wine retailer. The solution will serve as the engine behind Majestic’s National Fulfilment Centre (NFC) at Wincanton’s shared user site in Greenford, West London. Majestic’s customers will soon enjoy a named and next-day delivery service, allowing customers to select from a number of fulfilment options including click-and-collect and home delivery.”
Henri Seroux, Senior Vice President, EMEA at Manhattan Associates, added: “Manhattan’s multichannel fulfilment solution gives retailers the control and flexibility they need to compete whilst giving consumers more choice over how they shop. We are delighted to have extended our partnership with the UK’s leading logistics business and look forward to working closely with the Wincanton team to create new value for its retail customers and to deliver the fulfilling experience that today’s consumers have come to expect.”
