eCommerce growth in grocery retailing continues to expand. To remain competitive, grocery retailers require a presence across many channels – stores, online, social networking and mobile. Same-day delivery and immediate local-store pick-up are no longer perks for consumers. They are expectations.
eCommerce fulfillment presents a significant challenge for hypermarkets, supermarkets, and discounters. Managing grocery eCommerce fulfillment from regional distribution centers cannot accommodate the demands of today’s consumers, nor can it sustain cost efficiency.
The Solution: Micro-fulfillment at the grocery store level.
Store four times more products
By installing an AutoStore you’ll get four times the storage capacity in the same footprint as manual storage. With substantial space-savings, comes a range of new creative possibilities.
Existing store space and backroom for storage.
Reduce backroom space. Keep or expand available stock in the high-density storage.
Expand store space by integrating previous backroom space to the store.
Reduce both backroom and store space. Keep or expand available stock with high-density storage.
