This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: Ocean State Job Lot selects Manhattan Active Transportation Management.

Manhattan Associates Inc. has announced that Ocean State Job Lot (OSJL), the American discount retailer, has recently selected Manhattan Active Transportation Management (TM) to unlock new levels of logistics planning and efficiency.

This move marks a pivotal milestone in OSJL's commitment to building a fast and smart transportation network and a seamlessly unified supply chain.

OSJL operates over 150 stores across nine states, supported by a network of distribution centres and a vast array of global suppliers. A longstanding Manhattan Warehouse Management customer, the retailer is replacing its legacy transportation management system with Manhattan Active TM to dramatically improve its logistics planning and execution capabilities. 

This move also marks OSJL’s first step towards unifying distribution, transportation, labour and automation within a single, cloud-native application built on Manhattan Active technology.

Born in the cloud, and built entirely from microservices, Manhattan Active TM is engineered to be extended and never needs upgrading. This TMS offers faster, more intelligent solutions for optimised planning to untangle complex transportation networks, improve visibility and reduce costs.

"We are excited to embark on this next phase of our partnership with Manhattan Associates," said Hisham Aharon, chief information officer at Ocean State Job Lot. "Manhattan Active TM will give us the powerful tools we need to operate, analyze, and optimise our entire logistics network.”

“We are thrilled to expand our longstanding partnership with Ocean State Job Lot,” said Bob Howell, executive vice president, Americas, at Manhattan Associates. “Manhattan Active TM will provide this retailer with heightened visibility, more efficient operations, and enhanced cost-effectiveness, marking a significant stride towards a unified and efficient supply chain.”
