Fulfilment, last-mile deliveries and hyperlocal facilities are unavoidable costs of running an efficient grocery eCommerce business. While macro facilities are an essential part of the warehouse distribution strategy, there is no denying the value of micro-fulfilment centres (MFC).
Whether they are purpose-built, occupying vacant space in shopping centres, in-store or on the high street – MFCs are the bridge between speed and convenience. However, this often means sacrificing space. As the name implies, MFCs are smaller. Yet by taking a creative approach to space management, grocery businesses of all sizes can access eCommerce. Here is how: -
Smart Charging and Storage for Computer Handheld Devices
Save space by putting multiple functions in one area. 51T Enterprise Smart Charging Cabinet securely stores and charge 100 devices off one three-pin plug. When it’s time to change shifts, operatives can use a QR code or barcode to check the devices in and out.
The Smart Charging Cabinet makes it easier to track and replace defective devices, minimising delays in the production line. This video shows how it works.
When it comes to small spaces, mobility is critical. An all-in-one picking and labelling station are ideal for MFC's. Thoughtfully designed to work in tight spaces, these stations (computers on wheels) are customisable and allow for movement across the facility.
These are just a few of several 51T space-saving products, designed to help maximise productivity.
When you can't build bigger, it's wise to build smarter. Equipped with the right charging and storage solutions, Micro Fulfilment Centres are vital to enabling more grocery retailers to rise to the challenge of eCommerce.
