Kroger is to build three additional Customer Fulfillment Centres through its partnership with Ocado Solutions, two of which will be smaller than those announced to date.

Nine sites announced to date

Kroger has announced plans to open new facilities in the Great Lakes, Pacific Northwest and West regions. The new facility in the West, at 300,000 sq ft, will be comparable in size to some of the sites already announced. However, the CFC in the Pacific Northwest will measure 200,000 sq ft while the facility in the Great Lakes region will measure 150,000 sq ft. These sites will optimise the flexibility of the Ocado model, enabling Kroger to develop the appropriate ecommerce capacity in each location.
