The GIANT Company, USA: Empowering e-grocery growth through automated fulfillment
For more than 20 years, the brands of Ahold Delhaize USA have successfully built an e-commerce business through a network of manual fulfillment centers and brick-and-mortar stores. The GIANT Company chose Swisslog’s expertise to enable automated e-grocery fulfillment that improved productivity and helped the brand expand into a new market.
Automation enables The GIANT Company to serve more customers and for the first time - Southern New Jersey
The AutoStore systems enable automated fulfillment of 80% of the more than 22,000 SKUs maintained in the center. Automated picking is supported by conveyor-connected manual pick zones for fast-moving ambient products, fast-moving chilled products, bulk items and frozen foods.
The GIANT Company leveraged the organization’s deep e-grocery experience and Swisslog’s expertise to enable automated e-grocery fulfillment close to customers that improved productivity, shortened delivery times, lowered total delivered costs, and helped the brand expand into a new market.
I really enjoyed working with Swisslog through the design phase and configuring the AutoStore system itself is pretty straightforward but integrating that system into the environment is where expertise and experience really come into play. It was a very good experience working through that challenge with their team.
