Micro-fulfillment centers: Bringing fulfillment closer to the customer
A simple and compact last-mile delivery solution that can be placed anywhere, especially where real estate space is limited or cost-prohibitive.
A modular solution for a variety of applications
Automated micro-fulfillment centers can be a perfect solution for general merchandise retailers, as well as non-retailers, like manufacturers and distributors.
As demand for e-grocery services increases, micro-fulfillment centers have become an ideal solution for grocers wanting to move fulfillment closer to customers for curbside pickup or home delivery.
It can be especially attractive to pure-play e-grocers who don’t have retail stores that can serve as fulfillment hubs, easily storing between two to five days of grocery inventory.
There are a range of automation technologies and solutions to choose from as you build your automated micro-fulfillment center.
The AutoStore automated storage system efficiently picks and stores product to make better use of available space and increase the efficiency of the goods-to-person processes.
The CycloneCarrier shuttle storage and retrieval system delivers high throughput and storage capacity for storing small loads fast and efficiently.
The CarryPick storage and order picking system quickly adapts to changing customer demands and SKU sizes and makeup.
