The Rebound: What’s Happening in Micro-Fulfillment, July 8, 2021
Sometimes bigger isn’t better. When it comes to grocers and retailers trying to fulfill orders for buy online/pickup in store and same day delivery, the trend is to develop scaled down versions of automated warehouse solutions that can operate in the backroom of a store. The result is that micro-fulfillment is one of the fastest-growing segments of the order-fulfillment automation sector.
On this episode of The Rebound, MWPVL’s Marc Wulfraat discusses the micro-fulfillment phenomenon and why retailers need to pay attention.
