MFCs would allow the retailers to stock the inventory as per the local preferences of that area. The goal would be to stock most & relevant SKUs in the MFC and allow the remainder of inventory to be picked off the store shelves or other nearby pick locations.
Efficiently fulfilling BOPIS service levels has proved problematic and unprofitable for grocers and big-box retailers alike. An MFC approach supports in-store pickup for retailers offering BOPIS fulfilment models by shortening the distance from DCs and cutting unnecessary cost.
Extenuating circumstances such as natural disasters and supply chain disruptions, can create unexpected surges in online demand. Retailers need flexible and scalable micro-fulfillment solutions that can be implemented quickly via our automation solutions and meet unpredictable e-commerce demands.
MFCs are quicker to set up, helping retailers to ship goods faster from locations where demand has increased substantially. Orders can be routed more efficiently with strategically located inventory, easing the strain on major DCs. Consumers receive their goods more quickly because the supply chain is shortened.
As the last mile delivery quickly becoming a standard, the hub and spoke model is becoming the next wave. We will help you place an automated center within an urban space to reduce the delivery cost across your supply chain, adding up to the ROI of the project.
These small-scale warehouse facilities located inside the cities at strategic locations enable a less than 2-hour delivery from the time an order is placed till it gets delivered. Being on time every time, MFCs eliminate the complex web of last-mile delivery for the e-grocery retailer.
