Schneider Electric’s overarching purpose is to empower organisations everywhere to make the most of the world’s energy and resources, bridging progress and sustainability for all.

The organisation drives digital transformation by integrating world-leading process and energy technologies, end-point to cloud connecting products, controls, software and services across the entire lifecycle, enabling integrated company management for homes, buildings, data centres, infrastructure and industries.

Now, Schneider Electric is itself being empowered by Manhattan Associates, the global technology leader in supply chain and omnichannel commerce. As part of an ongoing, business-wide transformation strategy, Schneider has chosen Manhattan Active Warehouse Management and Manhattan Active Transportation Management to supercharge its global distribution and transportation network.

Schneider-Manhattan partnership continues

Schneider Electric and Manhattan Associates have long benefitted from a fruitful partnership which now looks set to continue well into a second decade. 

Having already enjoyed 12 successful years with a Manhattan warehouse management system (WMS), the leading global energy management and industrial automation organisation has upgraded to Manhattan Active Warehouse Management and extended it with Manhattan Active Transportation Management. 

“Adopting these two cloud-native solutions represents a significant step forward for our supply chain execution, as well as another exciting stride forward for the ongoing business-wide transformation journey,” comments Stuart Whiting, Senior Vice President and GSC Logistics and Planning at Schneider Electric.

“Manhattan’s unified supply chain solution will help us optimise inbound and outbound planning and execution and give us unprecedented levels of visibility and control across our entire global network of distribution centres and transport operations.”

Unifying warehousing and transportation

Manhattan Active Supply Chain (the combination of Manhattan Active WM and Manhattan Active TM) is being implemented in more than 20 Schneider Electric distribution centres, while Schneider plans to deploy Manhattan Active TM across a further 200-plus operational sites.

Unifying both warehousing and transportation through Manhattan Active Supply Chain will bring maximum inventory performance, operational efficiency and workforce agility to the company.

“Over the last decade, Manhattan has proven itself a valuable and capable WMS partner to Schneider Electric,” adds Henri Seroux, Senior Vice President, EMEA at Manhattan Associates.

“Upgrading to Manhattan’s unified supply chain solution gives Schneider centralised control over its distribution, transportation, labour and automation, in the process delivering significant efficiency, productivity and agility gains.”
