Online grocery fulfillment platform Food-X Technologies has reached an important milestone in its strategic partnership with Carrefour Group with the commencement of operations of Carrefour’s new e-commerce fulfillment centre in Belgium.
In October 2020, Carrefour’s Willebroek warehouse was completely empty. Barely seven months later, Carrefour Belgium can proudly announce that its new e-commerce distribution center is now operational with FoodX as a key partner.
Carrefour’s new facility has at its core the FoodX software-as-a-service eGrocery Management Solution (eGMS) to improve the productivity and profitability of operations.
This new fulfillment centre will be able to handle more than 5,000 orders per day for customers throughout Belgium by the second half of 2021. It will support the dramatic growth in eCommerce Carrefour has experienced in this market and allow the company to serve more customers, better and faster.
The end-to-end fulfillment capabilities of the FoodX eGMS ensures that this new 8,350 square metre facility is capable of efficiently processing a wide variety of products, including dry, fresh and frozen. A team of FoodX employees was successful in delivering this customer solution on-time and on-budget, all while contending with the additional challenges posed by the current pandemic.
“We are proud to have worked with the Carrefour team to introduce our FoodX eGMS solution within this new state-or-the-art fulfillment centre serving Carrefour’s communities throughout Belgium,” expressed Peter van Stolk, Chief Executive Officer of Freshlocal Solutions. “Our solution supports the safe, efficient, and cost-effective provision of eGrocery services, and we are excited to partner with Carrefour Belgium with our innovative technology to meet the needs of their market.”
Food-X Technologies is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vancouver’s Freshlocal Solutions.
