Transportation Modeling is the Secret Sauce in Papa John’s Recipe for Optimal Fleet Performance

ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 distinctive Transportation Modeling capabilities from Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:MANH).

Manhattan’s Transportation Management Solution leverages innovative 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, Manhattan Associates. “We are proud to help leading brands like Papa John’s put these advanced tools to work.”
