Micro fulfillment is a type of automated fulfillment. It was designed to address the challenges grocers face when bringing groceries online. Grocers use Takeoff’s automated Micro Fulfillment Center (MFC) — a small warehouse placed inside of a grocery store — to fulfill online orders. Takeoff’s micro fulfillment capabilities can go far beyond automation: with the right orchestration, data-driven analytics, maintenance, support, and expertise in place, you can unlock the full potential of micro fulfillment, helping your grocery business thrive online.
Many of the major grocery retailers are adopting automated solutions. They are significantly faster than manual fulfillment alone, meaning grocers can easily meet increasing online demand. Automated fulfillment is more accurate and allows for better inventory accuracy, which creates a better overall shopping experience for your customers. Finally, automated fulfillment is much more affordable, meaning you can fulfill online orders profitably and sustainably, even if a high percentage of your shoppers shift online.
Hyperlocal micro-fulfillment lowers two of the major costs (and logistical challenges) associated with bringing groceries online: picking and the last-mile. Item picking is managed through automated fulfillment. Robots, software, and industrial AI take care of the hard work, making online fulfillment easier, faster, more economical, and more accurate than manual fulfillment.
The last-mile challenges are minimized through “hyperlocal” placement and proximity to the end shopper. The MFC is small, giving you the flexibility to place it almost anywhere. A majority of retailers opt to co-locate with their existing stores, meaning grocers can utilize their existing retail space and save on real estate.
