Intra-logistics innovator, Dematic, has announced the expansion of its Demantic micro-fulfillment solution for general merchandise and apparel industries at the recently concluded NRF (National Retail Federation) conference. The new retail solution will help retailers address rising consumer demand for rapid e-commerce order fulfilment and delivery.
Dematic has a rich history with retailers developing and implementing intelligent order fulfilment solutions for their distribution centres. The Dematic micro-fulfillment solution continues this relationship as a trusted partner addressing the challenges of the retail and apparel spaces, according to a press release by the company.
Fast and flexible, the Dematic micro-fulfillment solution can be installed in as little as 12 weeks and in locations as small as 10,000 square feet. This compact design makes it possible to install in the back of existing retail locations, directly supporting online orders for consumers within a specific radius. Such close proximity enables companies to make better use of space at existing storefronts, streamline e-commerce order fulfilment and last-mile delivery, while providing a better end-consumer experience online and in-store.
Dematic technology offers a distinct competitive advantage. Software developed especially for the Dematic micro-fulfillment solution drives intelligent operation and tightly integrates with enterprise systems, so retailers retain control of their data. Proven controls and designs ensure continuously productive operation.
“The retail market is ripe for automation disruption, demonstrated by the immediate interest we’ve received from leading retail brands wanting to know more about micro-fulfillment. We began this by helping our grocery customers power the future of commerce with micro-fulfillment — general merchandise and apparel represent a natural next step. We believe the Dematic micro-fulfillment solution will soon set the standard for modern order fulfilment, and our proven automation technology and global scale uniquely positions us to advance fulfilment strategies for retail brands worldwide,” Dematic president and CEO Hasan Dandashly said.
