Before the pandemic propelled e-commerce to the fore here in the UK, many Scandinavian grocers had already spent years perfecting their own ultra-efficient online grocery selling model.
In many ways, the region had no choice as much higher labor costs made efficiency a necessity for any retailer looking to survive. But the end result is an e-commerce model that’s not just efficient, it’s hyper-efficient, and many Scandinavian grocers deliver exceptional end-to-end efficiency in their online operations – something many UK retailers can learn from.
So what exactly is their secret?
In partnership with Grocer Vision, this webinar with retail technology experts StrongPoint will explore what is at the heart of Scandinavian grocers’ e-commerce success.
From order picking to last mile solutions and pricing, we explore the practical ways these retailers have built ultra-lean online supply chains. We’ll hear first-hand from leading retailer Coop Sweden as their head of online operations reveal how they’ve achieved manual picking speeds of up to 300 items per hour in-store and significant delivery speeds with their click-and-collect grocery stores. lockers.
We will also discuss how UK retailers can learn from their example by leveraging higher efficiencies to lower costs exactly when they and their customers need it most.
