Walmart plans high-tech grocery warehouse — Chain Store Age

 

Walmart is taking on its (grocery) competition with the development of a high-tech fresh & frozen distribution center:

“However, the discount giant’s latest move to apply technological innovation in its supply chain seems to be a direct counter to Kroger’s rapidly growing customer fulfillment center (CFC) concept. Introduced in partnership with U.K.-based online grocer Ocado in May 2018, the CFC model combines vertical integration, machine learning, and robotics with affordable and fast delivery service for fresh food.”

P.S. Grocery is a market segment worth watching right now as more people enjoy cooking at home. Are you interested in selling more through Walmart this year? Get in touch with us at 8th & Walton today and schedule a consultation.
