Manhattan Associates has announced that France’s largest independent distributor of truck and automotive parts, Alliance Automotive Group France (AAG), will unleash the power of Manhattan Active Warehouse Management and Manhattan Active Transportation Management, at its latest state-of-art warehouse facility as part of a strategic initiative to expand its product range, improve customer service, reduce order processing times and cut its carbon footprint.
As a subsidiary of one of the world leaders in the sector, Genuine Parts Company, AAG France supplies tens of thousands of regional repairers, through a network of 16 warehouses and more than 1000 shops, providing vehicle maintenance and repairs, spare parts, paint, PPE, workshop equipment and even tools. The ambition behind the roll-out of a new 50,000 m², state-of-art warehouse facility, south of Paris, is to showcase its operational excellence and provide a hub to serve the entire country.
“In a market where competition is so fierce and unrelenting, it is necessary to reinvent oneself constantly,” said André Falbo, Transformation Director AAG France. “To support growth we recognised we needed to take our customer promise to the next level by increasing our product offering and cutting delivery times. We also understood the importance of minimising our CO2 emissions and fuel consumption from an environmental perspective too.”Click below to share this article
