Logistics services provider, Dalepak, has selected Manhattan Associates’ supply chain platform to run its three Northampton-based facilities which together comprise over 150,000 sq ft of warehousing space. Manhattan Associates Integrated Logistics SolutionsT, built on Microsoft.NET will form the technological cornerstone of a programme Dalepak is undertaking to overhaul its existing fulfilment operations.
A succession of new client wins, including the Ford Motor Company and Molton Brown, meant that Dalepak’s existing systems became over-stretched, making warehouse efficiency difficult to maintain. Dalepak required a proven, robust and scalable supply chain platform that would allow it to introduce industry best practice to its picking operations and product tracking processes, as well as provide business flexibility and seamless systems integration into external client systems.
‘We needed a solution to improve process flows within the warehouse and provide the features, functionality and versatility to evolve with us through regular solution upgrades,’ said Gary White, director for Dalepak.
