02.Click and collect
Click and collect now represents a significant portion of the online grocery market and is expected to continue to grow year on year due to its convenience for customers. Operators continue to invest in modern click and collect systems, offering dedicated drive throughs with number plate recognition, to enhance the customer experience. Omnichannel supermarkets enable operators to offer click and collect to their customers at convenient, local sites.
Delivering grocery from a well located omnichannel supermarket achieves a game changing saving in the cost of online fulfilment. Delivery cost is the dominant factor in online grocery fulfilment costs. Omnichannel stores have been proven to be the optimal method of online fulfilment due to their proximity to customers, reducing delivery time and cost.
