Logistics Services Provider Dalepak Prepares for Growth with Manhattan Associates

Leading Light in UK Logistics Sector Sets Sights on Expansion with Market Leading Supply Chain Platform

LONDON (December 10, 2007) –

Leading supply chain solutions provider Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH), today announced that Dalepak Ltd, one of the UK’s fasting growing logistics services providers, has selected Manhattan Associates’ supply chain platform to run its three Northampton-based facilities which together comprise over 150,000 square feet of warehousing space. Manhattan Associates Integrated Logistics Solutions(TM), built on Microsoft.NET will form the technological cornerstone of a programme Dalepak is undertaking to overhaul its existing fulfilment operations.

A succession of new client wins, including the Ford Motor Company and Molton Brown, meant that Dalepak’s existing systems became over-stretched, making warehouse efficiency difficult to maintain. Dalepak required a proven, robust and scalable supply chain platform that would allow it to introduce industry best practice to its picking operations and product tracking processes, as well as provide business flexibility and seamless systems integration into external client systems.

“We needed a solution to improve process flows within the warehouse and provide the features, functionality and versatility to evolve with us through regular solution upgrades,” said Gary White, director for Dalepak Ltd. “We chose Manhattan Associates based on the strength of a more functionally rich and future-proofed system platform. Manhattan Associates will help us achieve our goal of providing our customers with an unrivalled service experience.”

“Our track record of deploying complex solutions with similar sized business in the logistics services industry helped set us apart from other solution providers,” said Allen Scott, UK managing director at Manhattan Associates. “We look forward to helping Dalepak and its clients achieve supply chain leadership in their respective sectors.”
