Woolworths implements Manhattan Associates' supply chain platform
The distribution center, run on behalf of Woolworths by leading logistics services provider Wincanton, is dedicated to Woolworth's e-commerce operation. The site offers 200,000 products and includes a wide range of entertainment goods from DVDs and games to HD Ready TVs, BBQs and outdoor furniture, plus a huge range of electrical products. Tim Owrid, supply chain director at Woolworths, said: "Managing inventory for stores often means fulfilling orders for a small number of items in large quantities. In contrast, an e-commerce operation processes large volumes of orders, each typically consisting of a small number of individual units of either a single or several stock-keeping units. It therefore needs a dedicated system to fulfill demand."
