Canadian retailer The Forzani Group Ltd has invested in new logistics software to help expand its market share across the country.

The company, which is Canada's largest sporting goods retailer, serving more than 230 stores and wholesalers, 200+ franchises and a website, is using Manhattan Associates' Integrated Logistics Solutions to help boost the performance of its supply chain.

The new logistics solution means Forzani can now optimise warehouse layout and labour resources within its Toronto facility, streamline outbound shipment processes and utilise cross docking and put-to-store methods to speed the flow of goods.

The retailer is also better able to track product, share information electronically with its trading partners and improve response times to stores.
Increased visibility and productivity across its supply chain will also help Forzani to deliver sporting goods as its market share grows without carrying larger safety stocks.
