What You Will Learn

There’s a lot of excitement around micro fulfilment centers being the answer to e-commerce volume, but are these backroom fulfillment solutions meeting expectations? SSI SCHAEFER takes a serious technical deep dive into the world of micro fulfillment (MFC) for both grocery and retail chains to establish what parameters must be evaluated before implementing a solution. Many MFC facilities are leaving much to be desired, but in other cases they are performing as expected. However, it may be that an urban distribution center (UDC) would perform better depending on the situation. The entire landscape is new, and the industry is learning daily. However, the criterion varies from retailer to retailer and to realize a true ROI, the experts from SSI SCHAEFER have laid out how to determine which path is right for your retail operations

Key Takeaways

• Attendees will learn the differences between MFCs and UDCs and how to calculate ROI.

• Understand why the number of SKUs and inventory matters and how to factor these into your decision-making process.

Determine what the pivot point is for your organization and how to make the best decision.
