Papa John’s International Inc (NASDAQ:PZZA), the world’s third-largest pizza delivery company, is optimizing routes, improving on-time store deliveries, and enhancing the performance of its transportation fleet by using transportation modeling capabilities from Manhattan Associates Inc (NASDAQ:MANH).
Manhattan’s transportation management solution leverages 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 than simply using averages, and produces more realistic modeling scenario outcomes.
“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, vice-president, Papa John’s.
“Our TMS delivers the superior visibility, optimization, and flexibility that our customers need to effectively manage complex transportation networks,” said Scott Fenwick, senior director, product management at Manhattan Associates. “We are proud to help leading brands like Papa John’s put these advanced tools to work.”
