Dematic reveals new system to support same-day delivery

Dematic has announced the launch of its Micro-Fulfilment System, an e-commerce order assembly system for retailers that need to support same day home delivery, as well as click-and-collect.

The Dematic Micro-Fulfilment system is an ultra-local distribution solution that enables orders to be assembled quickly in a location close to the customer, inside a retail store or in an urban / suburban DC (distribution centre). The order assembly system is designed around process improvements and comprised of performance optimising software and automation.

“Dematic Micro-Fulfilment is a high-performance solution that makes rapid response order assembly cost effective for the customer and the retailer. In operation, the automated order assembly solution provides compelling results by minimising the time, space, and cost to fill orders,” said Pas Tomasiello, Senior Director Integrated Systems Group ANZ, Dematic.

The system accommodates a wide range of inventory in a compact, high-density layout that requires a small footprint. It significantly reduces the cost per order picked to a level that allows retailers to offer rapid response e-fulfilment at a price point attractive to their customers, and with the appropriate margin for retailers.
