SHANGHAI, China and ATLANTA, Dec. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:MANH) today announced it is the winner of the 2015 China Logistics “Well-known Brand” Award in an industry brand appraisal program that highlighted the strength of the Manhattan Associates brand and its supply chain solutions. Manhattan Associates is the recipient of this award for two consecutive years.
The brand appraisal program is sponsored by 56pinpai.com, the preeminent Chinese website focused on the logistics sector and covering all aspects of logistics, supply chain and warehousing in China’s retail, manufacturing, wholesale and distributor trades. The website is also a platform for providing valuable reference points to companies when selecting logistics services, technological solutions and materials handling equipment (MHE). The appraisal program is also supported by the China Association of Warehouses and Storage (CAWS), an influential industry body representing the interests of China’s logistics sector.
Xiao Xu, Head of Sales at Manhattan Associates Greater China said: “We are very excited to receive this award and humbled by the widespread recognition from the market. While China's economy is entering a “new normal” phase, the emergence of a new, more demanding consumer means the logistics industry will be pivotal in helping companies to design supply chains that are built to serve the customer. The impact of e-commerce has had a profound impact on consumer-focused businesses in China and highlights the shortcomings of traditional distribution systems. Manhattan Associates’ supply chain solutions are already helping many of China’s leading companies address the challenges presented by this new retail era and supporting the ongoing advancement of China’s logistics industry.”
According to a recent Deloitte report1 on China’s logistics industry, China is the largest logistics market in the world, yet its overall competitiveness is only ranked 28. Xiao Xu added: “In the future, China’s retailers, manufacturers and distributors will focus increasingly on driving efficiency enhancements as well as service level improvements. With our solutions already enabling innovations in both of these areas for China’s leading companies, we are confident Manhattan Associates will play an increasingly important role in helping China’s logistics sector close that competitive gap.”
Logistics directors, supply chain directors and CIOs from companies operating across China voted for The China Logistics Well-known Brand award. The award is based on the result of an online voting process to ensure the award is fair, impartial and transparent.
