A regional Midwestern grocer is improving the efficiency and visibility of its logistics network.

Hy-Vee Inc. is implementing the Manhattan Associates transportation management system (TMS) to assist with its supply chain operations. Carrying a wide selection of fresh products, Hy-Vee required a highly efficient and reliable infrastructure that could move perishable items through its distribution network with better accuracy and output. 

The retailer selected the Manhattan Associates solution because it can optimize both inbound and outbound orders holistically within a single TMS environment, as well as model transportation network changes to improve cost and service.

“Logistics processes are becoming increasingly complex, and there’s no room for error when working with delivery for perishable goods,” said Bob Howell, senior VP, Americas, at Manhattan Associates. “We are proud to once again partner with this innovative grocer and provide them with a proven and reliable solution that will continuously ensure quality and accuracy. We are thrilled that Hy-Vee has chosen Manhattan’s TMS technology and look forward to continuing our successful relationship.”

Headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa, Hy-Vee Inc. is an employee-owned corporation operating more than 275 retail stores across eight Midwestern states.
