Papa John’s delivers – on the back end
For pizza retailer Papa John’s International Inc., successful customer delivery begins with successful delivery in the supply chain.
Papa John’s is optimizing routes, improving on-time store deliveries and enhancing the performance of its transportation fleet by using transportation modeling capabilities from the Manhattan Associates Transportation Management Solution.
Papa John’s uses "probabilistic modeling" that helps shippers perform a variety of “what-if” scenarios, such as which distribution centers should service individual locations to optimize time, fuel and resources. Unlike traditional modeling tools, probabilistic modeling accounts for variability, which can provide more accurate results and produce more realistic modeling scenario outcomes.
Front-end customer service relies upon a supply chain that gets products where they are needed in a timely and cost-effective manner. Papa John’s is ensuring that its “fast food” moves just as quickly from warehouse to the store as from the store to the customer.
“Manhattan Associates’ sophisticated transportation modeling software helps us better manage the variability and complexity of our extensive transportation network and maximize the performance of our transportation fleet, a vital part of fulfilling our brand promise of ‘Better ingredients. Better pizza,’” said Eric Hartman, VP, Papa John’s.
