Fast and efficient online grocery fulfilment

Today’s food e-commerce market is changing rapidly. The demand for online groceries has soared and consumer expectations are higher than ever. At the same time, many distribution centre (DC) processes are too heavily dependent on labour.

The automation of order fulfilment therefore becomes inevitable in order to offer consumers a wide assortment of high-quality and fresh products, rapid deliveries, as well as maximum convenience and service at competitive prices.

To keep up with an exponentially growing market, scalable solutions are vital. As part of our next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions – Vanderlande offers HOMEPICK, which seamlessly integrates innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services.


HOMEPICK facilitates the fast and efficient fulfilment of online grocery orders. It is the ideal solution for food retailers that want to realise economies of scale through centralised fulfilment centres (CFCs) and offers:

  • high picking efficiency and shorter lead times
  • higher accuracy
  • easy scalability
  • a cohesive and ergonomic system design.

User experience

With simplicity in mind, Vanderlande’s evolutions streamline the logistics process in an attractive platform that is highly intuitive, requires minimal training and is easy to operate. Alongside optimised ergonomics and sustainable productivity, evolutions provide the best possible user experience.


When fulfilling a diverse order profile, handling varying SKU ranges or changing any logistic process, evolutions offer the optimum flexibility to tackle multiple challenges.


Vanderlande’s innovative approach puts scalability at the core of evolutions. This allows warehouses to easily adapt to seasonal peaks, changing throughput and storage requirements, and growing business demands.
