After its fire in Andover, Ocado has had some really good news: US retailer Kroger has named two US sites for its customer fulfilment centres (CFCs) to be built by the UK online grocer.
The two sites are to be in central Florida and Mid-Atlantic and will follow the first Ocado built site in Monroe near Cincinnati.
“Kroger is excited to partner with Ocado—one of the most innovative, advanced companies in the world—to redefine the grocery shopping experience for customers along the East Coast,” said Rodney McMullen, Kroger’s chairman and CEO.
“We are incredibly excited to introduce customer fulfilment centres in this region to deliver on our Restock Kroger vision to serve America through food inspiration and uplift.”
Under the deal with Ocado, Kroger is to built at least 20 CFCs, to accelerate its ability to provide customers with anything, anytime and anywhere.
Luke Jensen, chief executive of Ocado Solutions, said: “As the US retail landscape continues to change, these CFCs will play a crucial role in helping Kroger offer its customers a superior online shopping experience in these two major markets.”
