With the rise of online orders demanding more labor from the grocery workers, such as picking and packing, at a time when the industry is experiencing a staffing shortage, many sellers are turning to microfilament and other automated solutions. On Monday 20th, the world’s largest grocery store, Walmart, has announced that it will generate the automated grocery distribution center by the following July. This is to radically improve the disruptive supply chain that the world now faces.
Thus, amid changing consumer habits and the digital transformation reshaping the retail sector, Walmart is now collaborating with robotic and automation systems to revamp its regional distribution network and expand its service tracks. “To serve customers now and in the future, our business must provide the right tools and training to our associates so they can deliver the items our customers want, when they want them, with unmatched convenience,” Joe Metzer, executive vice president of supply chain operations, Walmart U.S., said in an announcement.
