Due to the COVID-19 scenario, as people are shifting more towards online shopping and home deliveries, global robotics and automation company, Addverb has come up with its new automated micro-fulfillment centers specifically dedicated to the e-grocery segment.
The company through its innovative in-house solutions and robots is working towards making the e-grocery segment future-ready. Micro Fulfillment Centers are small-scale warehouse facilities located inside the cities at strategic locations enabling 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 through its more efficiency in picking, packing, and shipment services.
Making a smart move to higher safety and efficiency, Addverb will help to place an automated center within an urban space which will reduce floor space costs and speeds up the picking process, hence reducing last-mile delivery cost. Flexible and scalable micro-fulfillment solutions that can be implemented quickly via Addverb’s automation solutions can meet unpredictable e-commerce demands.
MFCs are quicker to set up, helping you to ship goods faster from locations where demand has increased substantially with strategically located inventory, easing the strain on major DCs. The goal would be to stock most & relevant SKUs in the MFC and allow the remainder of the inventory to be picked off the store shelves or other nearby pick locations.
Speaking on this new solution, Sangeet Kumar, CEO & Co-Founder, Addverb, said, “At Addverb, we are ready to provide you with the best in class automation solutions to roll out your first MFC! We provide advanced robotics, picking & packing solutions to enable these mini-sized fulfillment centers to churn out 1000s of orders in smaller durations of time for the e-grocery customer using minimal space and manpower. With a robust micro-fulfillment strategy, we prepare you for the future of e-fulfillment trends.”
