New Consumer Shopping Habits Drive
Fundamental Change for Grocers

Cost-to-Serve, Quality, and Accuracy Are
Amplified For Grocery Fulfillment

With razor-thin margins, grocers are challenged to offer all the additional services today’s shoppers expect without breaking the bank. Curbside pickup and BOPIS (Buy Online Pickup In Store) require more labor to pick the orders for customers, straining the traditional grocery model. Fresh foods and substitutions introduce more complexity to the online ordering and fulfillment process as consumers hold grocery items to a higher quality standard for home delivery than in stores.

Grocery Fulfillment Challenges

Grocery Fulfillment Challenges

Labor, Labor, Labor

New customer pickup and delivery options require grocers to add more staff in-store to pick orders and select substitutions, and distribution center labor costs keep climbing as labor availability declines.

Margin Pressure

New consumer buying trends including BOPIS, curbside pickup, and home delivery can turn thin margins into negative margins.

Capital Investments & Utilization

Current asset utilization needs to be optimized, facility life needs to be extended, and new capital investments must return value fast.
