The retail segment which was gradually welcoming its transformation rather faced unprecedented pressure to enhance its omnichannel commerce after the surge in the e-commerce market amid the pandemic. The changing consumer behaviours and patterns have given a rise to many newer trends, one of them being micro fulfilment centres (MFCs).
Focused on using small, highly-automated warehouse facilities in densely populated urban locations near to the end customer, the MFCs – although a newer concept – has caught the eyes of many as it improves the time of delivering goods and enhance customer experience.
According to the latest study, Micro Fulfilment Market is expected to have a cumulative opportunity worth ~$10B in the next 6 years by 2026 with an installed base of ~2000 MFCs if the technology and concept remain permanent.
Understanding the need for a tech-enabled multi-storey warehousing solution and capitalizing on the growing market, Bobba Logistics – a complete warehousing and logistics solution company from the Bobba Group – has risen to the occasion to soon launch a modern state of the art micro fulfilment centre near Bangalore.
