WaitroseDeliver, the online grocery shopping service, has chosen to X2 Computing to supply a new generation of product picking trolleys and hardware. The trolleys will be used to fulfil online grocery orders and will be easier to handle, provide 20 per cent additional picking capacity and deliver cost savings and efficiencies. They will initially be deployed in 30 key stores providing the Waitrose Deliver service.
X2 Computing was awarded the contract, after completing similar e-fulfillment projects in the UK, USA, Portugal, Scandinavia and Australia.
Rob Collins, director of e-commerce at Waitrose, said: “We were impressed by the creative approach taken by X2 Computing throughout this project to developing an innovative and cost-effective solution that will make the product picking, a faster and more efficient process. The new trolleys will enable us to extend and expand our operations and provide our customers with an even better service.”
Francis Davis, managing director of X2 Computing, said: “We are particularly proud of this new trolley’s innovative features that will deliver significant efficiencies to the product picking process and a lower cost of ownership throughout their working life.”
