Omnichannel fulfillment complexities are permeating every sector of the retail landscape, and companies are adopting micro-fulfillment center (MFC) strategies to improve delivery time frames and shorten the distance between distribution centers (DCs) and their customers. Installed in stand-alone facilities or in (or near) existing stores, micro-fulfillment centers are designed to augment regional DC hubs and deliver highly automated, small-footprint automation where it’s needed most.
From grocers to major e-commerce players and traditional big-box stores, retailers are trying to satisfy demands for faster delivery and provide the option to buy online and pick up in store (aka BOPIS or “click-and-collect”). The trend toward micro-fulfillment is helping retailers across the retail spectrum meet these escalating customer demands.
To prepare for the future of micro-fulfillment in the ever-changing e-commerce landscape, retail stores and fulfillment centers alike are investing in technology that will help ease the burden of tight turnaround times and high customer demands.
