Ocado “scaling up” fulfilment capacity

Ocado has reported that it is “scaling up” capacity at its fulfilment centre in Andover and preparing to open its new Erith facility next year, as it sees “continued strong growth” in revenues. In its latest trading statement issued today (19 September), the UK-based online grocer said that its retail revenues for the 13 weeks leading up to 27 August were up 13.1% on last year at £312.7m, while group revenues (which include the benefits from its agreement with Morrisons) were up 14.3% at £344.5m.

Tim Steiner, Ocado’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “As channel shift gathers pace we need to take advantage of our industry leadership and so we are scaling up our capacity in our revolutionary new Customer Fulfilment Centre (“CFC”) in Andover with the performance of the facility improving week by week.

“At the same time, we are preparing our fourth, and biggest, CFC to date in Erith, set to open in 2018.”
