Kroger Adds Ocado Fulfillment Center In Maryland

Kroger and Ocado have added Frederick, MD, as the latest location for another of their automated customer fulfillment centers.

The automated warehouse facility will feature digital and robotic capabilities, also known as a “shed.” The new 350,000-square-foot Frederick facility will accelerate Kroger’s ability to expand its products to a larger footprint, the company added.

“Kroger is incredibly excited to construct one of our industry-leading customer fulfillment centers in Maryland in relationship with Ocado to bring fresh food to our customers faster than ever before,” said Robert Clark, Kroger’s svp/supply chain, manufacturing and sourcing. “Through our strategic partnership, we are engineering a model for the region, leveraging advanced robotics technology and creative solutions to redefine the customer experience.”
