PALLET, CASE, OR PIECE PICKING FOR GROCERY DISTRIBUTION
Grocery is a demanding business with very low margins, and consumer behavior is making it even harder to compete. Shoppers are changing the way they shop, and retailers and wholesalers have to accommodate for these global trends. Even the slightest edge can make the difference in this competitive food landscape when vying for customers, but not all changes are happening in the grocery aisle.
Automatic storage and retrieval solutions offer a differentiator through either decreased labor or omnichannel solutions for e-commerce picking. Many retailers are implementing compact distribution centers, which provide same day delivery without having to reduce in-store inventory. Others are looking at smaller automation systems that offer picking in the back of the store while some wholesalers are providing turnkey solutions for their banners and provide everything from e-commerce sites all the way to last mile delivery service.
Automation for grocery has to meet specific criteria, and SSI SCHAEFER has solutions that meet even the most stringent standards set by the FDA, USDA, and the USWA. Regardless if it’s frozen or fresh product, SSI SCHAEFER can handle your grocery application.
