Vanderlande has recently launched HOMEPICK, a solution that facilitates the fast and efficient processing of online grocery orders. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for online groceries has increased with a more diversified group of consumers discovering such services. At its core, HOMEPICK is based on a goods-to-person picking solution that makes use of ADAPTO, Vanderlande’s 3D, shuttle-based automated storage and retrieval system. By using ADAPTO and modular workstations, HOMEPICK’s scalability makes it future-proof. The sequenced flows of orders ensure the right order per delivery route and maximum delivery performance.
HOMEPICK guarantees a high picking efficiency, shorter lead times and higher accuracy. It also supports an omni-channel approach and can match any desired growth strategy.
“The drive towards automation has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, as the demand for online groceries has soared and the overdependence on labour has become more evident,” said Terry Verkuijlen, Executive Vice President Warehousing and Parcel at Vanderlande. “Many food retailers are redefining their strategies for online groceries, and in such an environment, HOMEPICK is the ideal choice to improve their operational performance. In addition, HOMEPICK not only showcases Vanderlande’s capabilities as an innovator, but also how we listen to the market, and seek to further enhance our offering in close partnership with our customers.”
