Australasia’s leading supplier of automotive aftermarket parts, accessories, automotive equipment and services, plans to implement a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) to upgrade their supply chain network.
Bapcor Ltd. has selected Manhattan’s Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) to be implemented across its Australian distribution centres (DCs) network.
Bapcor first implemented the new Manhattan WMS last month at their Nunawading DC, located 18 km east of Melbourne’s CBD.
The solution will automate and optimise fulfilment across Bapcor’s growing supply chain.
Bapcor has undertaken a strategic program which includes a re-evaluation of its network of DCs.
Bapcor plans to streamline its supply chain by incorporating distribution to all of its stores from upgraded and new warehouses and is investing in Manhattan’s market-leading WMS to upgrade their supply chain network.
Manhattan said their WMS will provide Bapcor with a common, scalable solution to underpin its domestic and international growth.
“The solution provides improved visibility of inventory and data, increased product availability and is expected to drive improvements in operational efficiency across its supply network,” they said.
“With a more flexible fulfilment approach and improved service levels, Manhattan’s WMS enables Bapcor to drive further business growth, revenue and profitability.”
Darryl Abotomey CEO and MD at Bapcor said the company is currently experiencing rapid growth.
“To support this we selected Manhattan’s WMS to bring our supply chain together to ensure a more seamless operation that enhances the level of service offered to our customers,” Darryl said.
Raghav Sibal Manhattan Associates’ managing director for Australia and New Zealand said companies today know that they need to deliver improved speed, efficiency, visibility and accountability throughout their supply chains “in order to grow and succeed in a competitive marketplace”.
“The highly scalable and flexible nature of Manhattan’s WMS gives our customers the confidence that they have the right technology to support ongoing growth,” Raghav said.
