In order to speed up the delivery of online grocery orders, Woolworths has implemented its first micro-automation technology in its e-commerce facility.
During the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Woolworths’ online orders skyrocketed, causing temporary shortages and forcing the business to “temporarily stop” its click-and-collect services across the country. Woolworths has since formed relationships with Sherpa, Drive Yellow, and Uber in order to deliver more online orders to customers.
