Hy-Vee Inc. will improve the efficiency and visibility of its logistics network to move perishable items through its distribution network.

The grocery chain has chosen to implement Manhattan Associatestransportation management system (TMS) to improve its logistics network and assist with its supply chain operations. 

Hy-Vee is an employee-owned corporation operating more than 275 retail stores across eight midwestern states, with annual sales of $11 billion. Known for its 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. Manhattan proved to be the best solution that could 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 vice president, 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.”
