Tesco announce next-day wine delivery

Published:  07 September, 2009

Tesco customers can now receive next-day delivery of Tesco Wine by the Case.

The move comes from the expansion of it's wine distribution business with the introduction of Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management solution (WMS) at its Brackmills, Northampton depot.

Customers can now receive next-day home delivery via the Tesco wine website, as well as continue to book ahead with a two-hour delivery window.

Neil Ashworth, supply chain director of said: "Our old in-house mainframe application simply couldn't deliver the service we want to offer our customers as we move  further into the 21st century. 

"Tesco Direct is already running efficiently using Manhattan Associates and the solution proved to be very easy to reconfigure for the wine operation. We now have far better control of our stock holding and have been able to greatly improve the availability of products for customers.

"Delivery options used to be four days or more,  now we offer next day delivery if requested. Initial feedback from customers has been extremely positive."
