Kroger extends reach with new fulfillment facility

The Kroger Co. will offer more Americans delivery through the addition of a spoke facility in central Ohio powered by the Ocado Group. The addition of a delivery spoke brings innovation and modern e-commerce to the central Ohio area, including Columbus, and will extend the grocer's reach and ability to provide fresh and friendly services to its customers.

"We're proud to expand the Kroger fulfillment network in our home state," said Gabriel Arreaga, Kroger's senior vice president and chief supply chain officer. "The new service is an innovative addition to the expanding digital shopping experience available to Kroger customers. Our delivery business continues to accelerate with the growth of fulfillment and spoke facilities. This expansion will further our commitment to create career opportunities and serve shoppers fresh food fast through interconnected, automated, and last-mile solutions across America."

The 61,000-square-foot facility will collaborate with the fulfillment hub in Monroe, OH, and serve as a last-mile cross-dock location that efficiently extends the fulfillment network reach to customers up to 200 miles away from the hub. At full capacity, customers in more than 250 central Ohio ZIP codes can experience Kroger Delivery. The facility will employ up to 200 associates.

"We are proud that the nation's largest grocery retailer is headquartered in Ohio, where Kroger continues to evolve its national growth strategy," said J.P. Nauseef, Jobs Ohio president and CEO. "This new, cutting-edge spoke facility in the Columbus region will connect more people to fresh food, create hundreds of jobs, and bolster efficiencies for Kroger customers in Ohio."
