AUTOSTORE ROBOTS

Results

Regional Distribution Centers (RDCs) allowed for large inbound shipments to be broken down to individual items. These items are then picked on an as-needed basis for store or replenishment to a Metro Ecommerce Center (MEC).

Segregated tote delivery allows for easy store replenishment while saving time.

The new logistics network allows Best Buy to offer free next day delivery to 50,000,000 people.
