Over recent years the grocery market has changed beyond all recognition. The increased cementing of grocery eCommerce and the strong showing of lower cost retailers has required a major re-think from all participants as to their market strategy and fulfilment approach.
Dematic partner with major grocery retailers around the world to allow them to develop and adapt their fulfilment strategies, thus enabling them to drive profitability in a challenging market.
Consumer habits are forever evolving, and the ability to understand and rapidly support the changing needs of the grocery retailer are critical to their success. Dematic’s grocery sector expertise and leading Matflo supply chain software solutions tailored specifically for the Grocery fulfilment sector are key to achieving these goals.
Store-friendly deliveries, increased SKU ranges, decreasing availability of backroom storage, home delivery and click & collect are the key challenges that need to be addressed in order to optimise retail fulfilment supply chains. The capture and publishing of accurate real-time inventory positions is key to maximising product availability both in store and on the web.
Dematic’s Fulfilment Centre Management System (Matflo FCMS) and In-store (Matflo In-Store) systems deliver a co-ordinated approach to eCommerce grocery fulfilment from both ‘Dark Stores’ and traditional stores. Automated dark stores are also fully supported. We believe our overall capability in this sector is unique.
