Did You know?

Come along as we journey into the world of online grocery retail in the eGrocery Dialogue. Along the way, we will highlight trends, challenges and solutions in this high-growth segment.

E-Grocery Special



Every industry has its own rules and challenges – of course, the area of food manufacturing and commerce is no exception. We work together with you to design the optimal solution for your requirements and to implement it on schedule. Our expertise for the grocery sector at a glance...

The reliable supply of shops, the growing skilled worker shortage and the changing demands of consumers regarding the convenience of shopping or the sustainability of products are just a few of the points that need to be taken into account in grocery fulfillment.  

In addition, the wide variety of product groups have different requirements for the required ambient temperature. Here, we have the definitive matching automation solution - from -22° F to 104° F.

As early as the planning phase, it is critical to develop a customized maintenance and repair concept. This provides a long-term reduction in the operating costs and, as a result, the Total Cost of Ownership

More about retail distribution

Online grocery retail offers enormous growth potential – however, the profitability of many business models still leaves much to be desired. High costs for fulfillment and "the last mile" play a major role here.  

With the right fulfillment solution and the appropriate degree of automation, the costs for each picked item as well as the processing times of orders can be drastically reduced. This results in a significant increase in service quality for consumers. Loading delivery vehicles optimally also ensures an efficient "last mile" delivery.  

Whether it is in a regional or a central fulfillment center: Our high-performance goods-to-person order fulfillment system FlashPick® can be used in all temperature zones (ambient, chilled, frozen). We also take maintenance and servicing costs into account during the planning phase in order to make your business case as positive as possible thanks to a low Total Cost of Ownership
